COVID-19 Activities and Resources

Planning for emergencies, specifically health-related emergencies, requires much preparation and forethought due to the potential for impacts to staff, supply chain, and support services. With that in mind, NERC has taken on a number of initiatives to inform stakeholders and protect the health of its workforce regarding the novel coronavirus known as COVID-19. During this challenging time, the ERO Enterprise recognizes the importance of prioritizing the health and safety of personnel and the continued reliability and security of the bulk power system. We will continue to evaluate the situation to determine whether additional guidance, extensions, and resources are needed.
