- What changes have you or your company had to adapt during COVID-19, are these changes temporary or permanent?
NACOG has adapted to many changes in the office from increased cleaning procedures, to layout changes to be able to hold face to face meetings, while still meeting CDC guidelines. We have the ability to meet one-on-one with our clients by appointment only. Our orientations are also now being held in person, by appointment only, as we have limited capacity to maintain social distancing.
