RTI International is committed to protecting the health of our worldwide staff members, our clients and partners, and our field data collectors and study participants.
The 2019 Novel Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) continues to be an evolving global health situation with much uncertainty. To address this crisis, RTI senior leadership meets regularly to carefully monitor this evolving situation. RTI senior leadership relies on authoritative sources of information such as the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as state and local health departments, the World Health Organization (WHO), and Ministries of Health and the relevant U.S. Embassies for our global locations.
Across all our locations, RTI has provided staff members with instructions from the CDC regarding best practices for personal hygiene and maintaining a healthy work environment. Notices to reinforce this information with both staff and visitors have been posted in all of our facilities. Information and guidance for our staff members is posted on the RTI intranet and provided by RTI senior leadership daily.
At present, U.S.-based RTI and RTI Health Solutions staff members worldwide have been instructed to work from home if practicable. Our international offices are adjusting work arrangements to reflect the situation in each country.
Worldwide our staff members continue to stay focused serving our clients and delivering on our mission to improve the human condition by turning knowledge into practice.
