COVID-19

During this COVID-19 emergency we all can play our part, from staying at home and complying to the COVID-19 restrictions, to being actively involved in the fight from behind the scenes to right at the front line. We believe at Compliplus that even our small company can support the national effort to protect individuals from infection and eradicate COVID-19 so that everyone can return to normality.
