Nasdaq has and continues to review its pandemic and contingency plans and is prepared to act to ensure uninterrupted operations if and when the situation changes. At this time, there are no plans for any changes that would affect any trading operations or support for any equities, options, or fixed income trading platforms.

Nasdaq is closely monitoring the developing situation around the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Operating de-centralized electronic marketplaces affords Nasdaq the unique safeguard of employee and geographical dispersion. In the event that the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation worsens, Nasdaq is prepared to further deploy emergency plans and relocation of employees.

Nasdaq remains committed to operating our open outcry facility in Philadelphia, and in the event we are unable to do so, we will support all Nasdaq PHLX listed products electronically from our Carteret NJ data center.

Nasdaq will continue to provide updates as the situation evolves.
