WANO statement on the coronavirus
19 March 2020
Nuclear power plants will continue to provide a safe, reliable source of electricity that is vital to the world’s response to the coronavirus. WANO will carry out its mission – to maximise the safety and reliability of nuclear power plants worldwide – to the maximum extent possible during this difficult time. Each WANO regional centre and the London office has established guidance to its staff and members, with their health and safety as WANO’s key priority.
WANO is following recommendations by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and those provided by national governments. WANO's leadership continues to assess the situation, and the impact on WANO activities, on a daily basis.
