COVID-19 and ACHP Operations

April 03, 2020

ACHP Operations 

The ACHP has implemented a coronavirus disease (COVID-19) continuity of operations plan, which includes encouraging staff to telework until further notice in an effort to limit face-to-face interactions that can contribute to a spike in infections and the spread of the virus.

ACHP staff will be as accessible as always and will be working the same schedules. Where you may notice a difference is that the staff will be conducting significantly less travel and will conduct meetings via teleconference or video conference unless impracticable.

While we will have staff checking regular mail, we ask that you conduct your formal communications with us by electronic mail as much as possible during this time. All Section 106 notices of adverse effect should be submitted through the e106 system until further notice.
