ESCC Issues Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resource Guide

The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) is very active with the Electricity Subsector Coordinating Council (ESCC) and participates in joint, biweekly ESCC calls with key government partners (Department of Energy, Department of Homeland Security, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and Department of Health and Human Services) in addressing a novel Coronavirus known as COVID-19. This effort began last week to provide general situational awareness and share best practices. As part of that effort, NERC worked with trade organizations and other entities to help develop and distribute a guidance document designed to support industry leaders in making informed, localized decisions in response to this evolving global health emergency. 

The document—Assessing and Mitigating the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)—is posted on the ESCC website, the E-ISAC portal, and has been shared with other sectors and government partners. The guide will evolve as additional information and recommended practices are identified.
