Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update: March 12, 2020
The safety of our event participants, attendees, and families is of the utmost importance to us. We are closely monitoring developments relating to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), reviewing the guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO), and working with state and local health departments where our events are scheduled to be held. We will comply with the directives and policies issued by federal, state, and local governments relating to events like ours, and we will employ the guidance from the CDC and WHO, as well as state and local health departments, for events to ensure the safety of all involved in our events.
We will be sure to notify you via email and social media if an event is postponed. If you haven’t been notified directly, please know that the event will be going forward as planned. If an event for which you are registered is postponed, we will waive the transfer fee so you can move your registration to the rescheduled event or another one of our events in your area.
We encourage everyone to familiarize themselves with and follow the WHO’s protective measures against the new Coronavirus, as well as the CDC’s Steps to Prevent Illness and Steps to Help Prevent the spread of the new Coronavirus. In particular, for the safety of all involved in our events, please stay home if you are sick or if you start to feel unwell, even if you have mild symptoms such as headache and slight runny nose. And please practice every day preventative measures leading up to and at the events, including the following:
Covering your coughs and sneezes with a tissue, and then throwing the tissue in the trash.
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Clean frequently touched surfaces and objects daily.
If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
