Important message regarding COVID-19

By Anders Levinsen

Dear all,

The Corona cloud is still spreading and the situation is deteriorating every hour. The world is shutting down to prevent the virus from spreading too fast.

Of course, Cross Cultures has also shut down and suspended all activities in all partner countries, while at the same time we have asked our colleagues to work out of home.

In this way, we have now entered into a phase where we are carefully evaluating the current situation country by country in order to enable ourselves to respond properly and responsibly to the given situation and to ensure that we all as a minimum comply with all necessary instructions and guidelines of the respective national authorities.

Furthermore, we must use the time constructively, make an organizational review of all offices and prepare ourselves for the day where we can resume our operation.

Needless to say, that this is a difficult situation for all of us and it is the right time to demonstrate and live our core value: WE CARE FOR EACH OTHER.

In the given situation “to care for each other” means that we shall all do whatever possible to avoid the virus spreading too quickly. I.e. we must do whatever we can to stay away from each other in order to minimize spreading the virus☹

I am fully aware that this is in contrast to how we usually behave in Cross Cultures. But in this situation, we must help each other by keeping distance with each other.

Thus, I kindly appeal to all of us respect and to spread the important message to our children, families and friends, that during this difficult situation we must CARE FOR EACH OTHER by staying away from each other.

Best Anders


so that the infection is not allowed to lie down and can spread. Both at home and at work.


The first symptoms are fever, a feeling of exhaustion and dry cough. Some patients have also had muscle pain and difficulty breathing, while headaches, dizziness, abdominal pain, diarrhoea, nausea and vomiting have been reported rarely.

It takes 2-12 days from being exposed to infection until you get sick.
