Covid Update

The health and safety of our attendees, exhibitors, members, and industry colleagues are of the utmost importance to us.

Now, more than ever, we must organize, connect and collaborate to advance research to combat this public health threat. .

Everyone is encouraged to follow the most conservative guidelines available from leading global and local health authorities (such as the CDC and WHO), which include social distancing, frequent hand washing, covering coughs and sneezes, and staying home if at all possible.

COVID-19 affects different people in different ways. Infected people have had a wide range of symptoms reported – from mild symptoms to severe illness.
Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:

• Fever or chills
• Cough
• Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
• Fatigue
• Muscle or body aches
• Headache
• New loss of taste or smell
• Sore throat
• Congestion or runny nose
• Nausea or vomiting
• Diarrhea

Look for emergency warning signs for COVID-19. If someone is showing any of these signs, seek emergency medical care immediately:

• Trouble breathing
• Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
• New confusion
• Inability to wake or stay awake
• Pale, gray, or blue-colored skin, lips, or nail beds, depending on skin tone
