Coronavirus: ILTA to push ahead with meetings + circulates COVID-19 survey

ILTA has said that it will push ahead with its scheduled 2020 events but closely monitor COVID-19 updates, and it has circulated a survey to gauge members and business partners’ plans in relation to the virus.

Here is the statement, followed by the survey:

As our ILTA event season begins, we are closely monitoring COVID-19 (aka coronavirus) updates, including reports from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), U.S. Department of State, and World Health Organization (WHO).  In addition, our team is regularly exchanging information with our peers in the events and association spaces about their thoughts and plans. To ensure our members, sponsors, and the legal community at large are supported throughout this period of global focus on COVID-19. 

Although the CDC considers the current, immediate health risk to be low at this time in ILTA’s event locations, we are prepared to take any precautions necessary to keep all ILTAns safe and secure. 

Your well being is our primary concern.

Below please find specific updates on ILTA’s plans and preparedness relating to COVID-19.
