Esteemed Client,

At this stage, we have not been made aware of any domestic delays or court closures associated with the virus. However, public schools in a number of states have closed due to the virus and it is possible that other government institutions, including courts, will eventually follow suit. Our research teams are monitoring the situation across the country and further updates will be provided if we begin to see delays in any of the impacted areas. In the event of court closures, we have developed a separate continuity plan to address how we will manage volume and communication throughout the life of the closure. Should the need arise, our workforce is able to be remote within less than 24 hours and can function remotely with little to no interruption to our service and communication. As we evaluate the increasing global concerns surrounding COVID-19 (Coronavirus), we want you to know that we are actively monitoring this evolving threat and to take a moment to share some of our business plans. We also want to share information we have on how COVID-19 is currently impacting background research, COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and it’s Global Impacts on Background Research

Regarding International impact, at this time over 100 countries have laboratory-confirmed cases of COVID-19. However, the only current delays VICTIG has experienced are with criminal orders out of China and Italy. International employment/education verifications may also be intermittently delayed depending on school/business closures at the time verification attempts are being made.

Updated information regarding delays will be posted on as they are received. We will also send out follow up email notifications in the event of any material changes. As an organization focused on the well-being of our employees as well as our responsibility to our clients, please rest assured that we are actively taking measures to ensure the safety of our team and viability of our services.  If you have any questions regarding our continuity planning or anything else, please do not hesitate to email or call us at 866-886-5644.
