Laird Technologies’ Update on Actions Regarding H1N1 Virus

Laird Technologies’ Update on Actions Regarding H1N1 Virus


St. Louis, Missouri, USA – June 12, 2009 – Following consultation with national Governments, the World Health Organization (WHO) raised its pandemic alert state to level 6 on 11 June. This acknowledges widespread person to person transmission of the virus in multiple countries across more than one global region. The increase in alert state does not imply that the virus has become more virulent or harmful and the impact of cases continues to be generally mild. Laird Technologies has followed WHO guidance in continuing to prepare and validate contingency plans at all our sites rather than focusing on those in and adjacent to Mexico where the outbreak started.

Recognizing that we have had no cases in any of our sites in Mexico or elsewhere and noting that the virus now has a broad global footprint Laird Technologies continues to operate with no travel restrictions to any of our locations.
