There continues to be widespread impact from the COVID-19 pandemic. Beginning in the first quarter of 2021, there has been a trend in many parts of the world of increasing availability and administration of vaccines against COVID-19, as well as an easing of restrictions on social, business, travel and government activities and functions. On the other hand, infection rates and regulations continue to fluctuate in various regions and there are ongoing global impacts resulting from the pandemic, including challenges and increases in costs for logistics and supply chains. We have also previously been affected by temporary laboratory closures, employment and compensation adjustments and impediments to administrative activities. The level and nature of the disruption caused by COVID-19 is unpredictable, may be cyclical and long-lasting and may vary from location to location.
In addition, we have experienced and are experiencing varying levels of inflation resulting in part from various supply chain disruptions, increased shipping and transportation costs, increased raw material and labor costs and other disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and general global economic conditions.
The continuing impact that the COVID-19 pandemic will have on our operations, including duration, severity and scope, remains highly uncertain and cannot be fully predicted at this time. While we believe we have generally recovered from the adverse impact that the COVID-19 pandemic had on our business during 2020, we believe that the COVID-19 pandemic could continue to adversely impact our results of operations, cash flows and financial condition in the future.
We continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and the guidance that is being provided by relevant federal, state and local public health authorities and may take additional actions based upon their recommendations. It is possible that we may have to make adjustments to our operating plans in reaction to developments that are beyond our control.
Transition expenses are primarily related to the Rutherford, New Jersey lab closing and subsequent move to Morrisville, North Carolina, which was completed during the first half of Fiscal 2021, as well as other cost-saving initiatives consisting primarily of reductions in headcount and the implementation of a new laboratory information system. To optimize the operations of laboratory operations within our pharma services, we transitioned activities from the Rutherford facility to our Morrisville facility. The transition included the transfer of personnel, expansion of the Morrisville facility and validation of transferred processes.
