At Ascensia Diabetes Care, the health and safety of our customers, employees and the patients we serve is our number one priority.
We are continuing to monitor the global impact of the COVID-19 outbreak and are taking all appropriate measures to keep our employees safe and minimize the effect on people who rely on our products and services.
We are beginning to experience some transportation challenges, with enhanced screening putting pressure on road shipments at borders and the decline in the number of commercial flights affecting air freight availability. Although these are not directly impacting our ability to supply products, they may have an impact on supply in certain markets depending on how long we experience these limitations.
However, we have solid business continuity plans in place to manage our global supply and are working closely with our partners to ensure we are able to maintain production and supply of our strips and meters to all countries.
This is a very dynamic situation with new information and guidance being issued from authorities on a regular basis. We will therefore be continuing to monitor the situation closely and will issue any revised information via this website page. Please continue to visit this site for ongoing communications from our team related to this issue.
