The Daugherty Water for Food Global Institute, including the Nebraska Water Center and Water Sciences Lab, is following CDC guidelines and the University of Nebraska’s protocol to avoid the spread of novel coronavirus. Many of our staff are working remotely, but are available to respond to calls or email, as usual. The office remains open with limited staff unless otherwise communicated. This situation provides us with an opportunity to be innovative in our efforts to improve water and food security while supporting the health safety of our staff, as well as our many partners and communities in Nebraska and around the globe. Water and food security needs are not taking a break, and neither are we.
