"We have never taken any option off the table, which includes, like you said, some type of pause or reset and any other alternative arrangements," he said. "But right now, what we are focused on is, what we can learn from these types of situations trying to make sure that transmissions are not ongoing in those situations? Let's also keep in mind we've got nine to 10 weeks of data now, with over 400,000 tests, and we've had about 83 positive cases. And in the overwhelming majority of those cases, we've not seen transmissions."
