Subject: [rda-covid19][rdacovid19-coordination] RDA COVID-19 Recommendations and Guidelines – 5th release – PUBLISHED
Dear COVID-19 Working Group Members,
We have just published the 5th (pre final) release of the COVID-19 Recommendations and Guidelines –
This version is now open for public comment until 8 June 2020
I would ask you all to circulate this document and the executive summary and press release to your networks (links below). In addition to collecting feedback on this before it is officially endorsed, we want to broadcast far and wide this amazing community collaboration, cooperation and co creation for the benefit of the stakeholders.
Though our work is not done, this release is a significant milestone. It is a culmination of thousands and thousands of hours volunteer effort from experts across many disciplines. It is the fruit of an unbelievable drive and demonstration of passion and dedication from a global RDA community. A community I am so proud to represent.
I would like to thank you all so much for responding to the call for action less than 2 months ago. Please allow me to thank especially the co-chairs, moderators and the editorial team whose energy and tireless efforts have amazed and astounded me over this intense period.
My sincerest gratitude to you all
