The World Health Organization has characterized COVID-19 (coronavirus) as a pandemic and its effects have become impossible to ignore. COVID-19 is a flu like virus spread by direct, person-to-person contact and respiratory droplets. Symptoms can include fever, cough, and shortness of breath. With the rise in the number of people infected, this virus is impacting many aspects of life and interpreting is no different.
Our main goal is to keep our clients and our interpreters safe while still providing the very necessary interpreting services needed nationwide. If you are located in an area that has not issued a shelter in place order, then we have prepared the following tips for on-site interpreting assignments. We are not medical experts and encourage you to research further safety precautions to keep you and your families safe.
