COVID-19 Coronavirus Response Team
Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses which may cause illness in animals or humans. In humans, several coronaviruses are known to cause respiratory infections ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). The most recently discovered coronavirus causes coronavirus disease COVID-19.
COVID-19 is the infectious disease caused by the most recently discovered coronavirus. This new virus and disease were unknown before the outbreak began in Wuhan, China, in December 2019.
The KBS COVID-19 Coronavirus Response Team has implemented an Emergency Response Plan to ensure the safety of its employees, customers, and maintain the cleanliness of facilities that we service.
The Plan emphasizes deliberate methods to measure, monitor, and adjust actions to changing conditions and improved protection strategies.
