In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a global pandemic and recommended containment and mitigation measures around the world. We are following this closely, and while the COVID-19 outbreak has not significantly affected our operations to date, the ultimate duration and severity of the outbreak and its impact on the economic environment and our business remain uncertain. All properties in our portfolio are currently open to our major tenants and their clients and will remain open to meet state and local government requirements. In 2020, we did not experience and do not foresee in 2021 any significant changes in our operations in connection with COVID-19. Our tenants continue to generate income from these properties and they have continued to pay their lease payments in full and on time, and we believe that the tenants’ liquidity position is sufficient to meet the expected rental obligations. Accordingly, while we do not anticipate the impact on our operations, we cannot estimate the duration of the pandemic and the potential impact on our business if properties are closed or if tenants are otherwise unable or unwilling to make rent payments. In addition, a severe or prolonged economic downturn could lead to many risks to our business, including reduced demand for our properties and reduced ability to raise additional capital when needed, on acceptable terms, if possible. The Company is currently unable to assess the impact of this event on its operations.
