UPDATE 3/13/2020:


UPDATE 2/24/2020: The coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19) has spread now to South Korea, Europe, and the Middle East, even as the number of reported cases in China are steadily declining. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped sharply on 24 February 2020 as news of the spread of the disease came out over the previous weekend. The North American impact of the supply chain disruption may still be a few weeks out as it can take 30-60 days for parts sourced from Asian factories to reach the point of production here. Additionally, the disruption may impact parts and components sourced from other countries, and each level of the supply chain has an inventory that may serve to buffer and further delay production interruptions in North America.


If you are concerned about reported cases in the United States, the CDC page (referenced above) and your county health department are useful resources or what you can do to protect workers in your U.S. facilities.
