COVID-19 continues to affect the world.

As a result, all IEC employees who do not fall into one of the vulnerable groups or live with a vulnerable person, will continue to work onsite 2 days/week, until further notice. The IEC will keep monitoring the situation and update its policy as appropriate.

All staff at IEC Regional Centres continue to work remotely, in line with the instructions of their respective country and city governments.
