This means that:

  • All technical support and assistance operations, including system maintenance and responding to requests via the [email protected] account, have now resume
  • All onboarding activities have now resumed

We will update you on this situation periodically and when any additional changes occur.

For anyone with questions regarding the BioSense 2.0 application, data feeds or onboarding, please send your email to [email protected].

If you require immediate attention from CDC personnel please contact one of the following individuals who are currently available: Alan Davis ([email protected] ) or Toby Slusher ([email protected])

For anyone having any general questions or concerns regarding this situation, please contact Scott Gordon ([email protected]) or Paula Soper ([email protected]).

Finally, please forward this notice to all other personnel in your organization to which it is relevant.
