Santa Fe Analysis

In lieu of the latest measures rolled out, during the time taken to get the swab test results from the authorities, it is advisable to minimize contact with others as a precautionary measure. For employers, it is advised to keep assignment start dates flexible for affected travellers and also to keep business travels to a minimum.

As COVID-19 continues to spread to more countries and infect more people, we recommend practicing hygiene and safety measures first.
