We recognize that with the constantly changing COVID-19 situation around the world, this is an unprecedented time for everyone — a time that, for many, is filled with uncertainty. Our hearts and thoughts go out to each and every one of you.

Our doors are open. I want you to know you have our commitment to continue providing you with the background screening services you depend on. Our senior leadership team remains vigilant and is monitoring the situation and will respond rapidly as changes in the industry and its access evolve.

Take a deep breath. We have heard it’s good for your mind as well as your lungs! For the most part it will be business as usual at National Background Investigations. Remember, this too shall pass.

Please be safe and stay healthy. Take care of yourselves and each other.
