Automation Alley COVID-19 Update and Resources

Under the guidance of state government and the CDC, and in an effort to ensure the safety, health and well-being of our staff and the community, Automation Alley's Troy headquarters will be closed to all visitors until further notice to help prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). We are taking this situation very seriously by encouraging our staff to work remotely and believe physical distancing at this critical point will help flatten the curve of this outbreak.

During these unprecedented and uncertain times, I urge you to focus not on what could go wrong, but what can go right. Just as the digital transformation of Industry 4.0 is disrupting businesses, this global pandemic is forcing companies around the globe to change their behavior and their culture. Use this time as an opportunity to explore the remote workplace, find new ways to engage with your employees, and—most of all—lean on each other during this most serious test. No one can predict the future, but together we can make it through this truly epic disruption.

Below we've compiled a list of COVID-19 resources for business.

Stay safe and healthy.
