EAGE would like to make clear that we are carefully monitoring the possible impact of any further spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) on all our scheduled events. Our first priority is the health and welfare of the wider EAGE community, and we are basing all decisions on the advice of the World Health Organization, as well as appropriate national and local authorities.
As a global organization EAGE hosts events all around the world, and monitors each local context and decides policy for each event on a case-by-case basis. If you are attending, or planning to attend an event with EAGE, please consult the specific event website for the most up-to-date information and guidelines. Find your event at: www.events.eage.org.
All intending participants at upcoming meetings should be assured that we will issue immediate notice if advised that a particular conference, workshop, etc. is no longer appropriate in the current environment.
In the meantime we would suggest that members follow current assessments of the impact of the COVID-19 as indicated by the WHO on its website. If traveling, immigration advisories issued by individual countries should also be checked.
If you are attending one of our events, we recommend following the hygiene guidelines offered by the WHO. You can find these guidelines here: https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/advice-for-public
We at EAGE wish the very best to all those affected directly and indirectly by the outbreak of COVID-19. We remain optimistic that this situation will soon run its course, but are ready, willing and able to make the right decisions for attendees, should the need arise.
