COVID-19 Information

The coronovirus situation is ever changing and it can be hard to keep up with what's happening. We have created a space that has links to helpful information, multilingual videos around COVID-19, and SPNN procedures during this time. 

SPNN is currently closed to the public, but we have continue to do work with our media partners, provide support for our 32 CTEP members (including virtual Corps days), and provide technical help to our members and community. Find out more infromation here
