CUE Spring Conference 2020 to go ahead as planned
This note provides an update on CUE’s position and ongoing efforts to monitor the Covid-19 virus.
We are diligent in our understanding and preparation around the Coronavirus (Covid-19), but I want to share a direct update with our community.
Our priority is everyone’s health and safety. We will work closely with Government authorities, CDC and WHO guidelines to ensure we are moving forward appropriately. This is a fluid situation, so we will continue to evaluate it with the best information possible.
At this time, CDC advisories indicate that events can proceed, and the U.S. Government has not issued domestic air travel restrictions. With this in mind, we are going ahead with the Spring Conference as planned based on the high number of registrations and inquiries to attend the event and very few cancellations. We feel it’s the right thing to do for our community.
CUE has already begun a central repository for our members on information related to the Spring Event and Covid-19 precautions. Additionally, we will provide updates on our social channels so that information is readily available, and we are being proactive in communicating our position. We will also produce a fact sheet of protocols to be followed onsite by everyone so we can play our part in keeping the spread of Covid-19 under control while having a successful event.
Please reach out to me directly if you have any questions.
Thank you for your continued support.
Anne Cooper, J.D.
Interim Executive Director
Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
