COVID-19 Update

Dear Members and Friends,

To stop the spread of the Coronavirus, Bay Area health authorities announced a ‘shelter in place’ order effective Tuesday, March 17 which affects six Bay Area counties including Santa Clara County where NextFlex is located. Due to this order, the NextFlex staff will be working remotely for the next three weeks and the NextFlex office and Technology Hub will be closed to visitors and staff. Our utmost concern is for the safety of our employees and our community, and to continue working in support of our members to the degree possible. Although we will not be able to operate the pilot manufacturing line during this time, we will continue to pursue ways that we can move NextFlex forward. To that end, we are committed to sustaining business continuity in creative ways, such as: documentation, planning, design work, customer/member communications, data analysis, learning, and more.

We plan to return to the office on the morning of April 7, but we will keep you apprised of notable updates that may impact this date. During this time, the NextFlex staff will be available by phone and by email and will continue to conduct meetings via teleconference. We are committed to providing outstanding service and support to our members during this uncertain time. As always, if you have questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
