Coronavirus/COVID-19 Updates

Updated: August 3, 10:30 a.m.

National NSSLHA’s priority is the safety and well-being of NSSLHA members, students, volunteers, and staff. We're working closely with ASHA to closely monitor information about the coronavirus/COVID-19 from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization, local and national government statements, the U.S. State Department, and other trusted agencies providing specific information on the virus and related risks.

Together, we'll remain #NSSLHAstrong.

With the socially isolating impacts of COVID-19, feeling connected to your cohort is hugely important—now more than ever! We’ve heard from a lot of chapters, asking for ways they can connect with chapter members, host events, and volunteer within their local communities . . . virtually.
