Required health screening through the NGU Clinic will be discontinued effective immediately. Instead, employees are asked to self-monitor as previously requested. If you have a fever, shortness of breath, and/or dry cough, please be tested and remain at home. For fever, remain at home until you are fever-free for 48 hours. If you have been exposed to or have a confirmed case of COVID-19, please self-quarantine for 14 days.
