October 7, 2023 at 5:00 PM EDT

October 7, 2023 – We condemn the brutal and unprovoked attacks on Israel today. We stand with our employees, vendors and partners and the State of Israel as they defend their nation against these senseless assaults.

Our top priority is the safety of our employees in Israel and their families. We are in contact with our Israel leadership team and are monitoring the situation closely. All non-essential employees will be asked to remain home, prioritize their safety and follow the guidance of Israeli authorities. Currently, we plan for our Israel facilities to remain open for essential employees and manufacturing. We are committed to serving our customers and patients and are taking appropriate steps to ensure we can continue to do so.
