On 11 March 2020, the WHO Director-General declared the situation on diseases with the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) to be a pandemic.
The Coronavirus is also now widespread in Germany. For this reason, Bals & Vogel has taken measures in accordance with government guidelines and recommendations for delaying the transmission of infections and protecting at-risk groups. In particular, when working in the office our staff is now using a shift system to reduce contact as well as our successfully implemented home office option. Since we currently have two operating branches, our established practice of keeping digital files has enabled a smooth transition into an accessible home office option. These combined measures are helping us to ensures that all the necessary deadlines can be met. The health and safety of everyone, including our employees, families and friends, is a top priority.
