Due to escalating public health concerns surrounding coronavirus (COVID-19), EERI has decided to cancel all in-person events, meetings, and activities for the remainder of March and April 2020. 

At this time, all in-person activities planned for May and June may remain in a tentative status or be canceled/postponed at the discretion of the EERI chapter, committee, or program. In April, EERI will revisit the extension of this policy for a longer time period and consider further event cancellations based upon the latest information available at that time.

The following scheduled activities have been canceled and sent official notices:

  • EERI Regional Chapter events
  • SESI Classroom Outreach visits
  • Friedman Family Visiting Professionals Program visits
  • Younger Members Committee visits
  • LFE Reconnaissance trips

Any other committees or chapters with questions should contact their staff liaison. EERI student chapters are reminded to follow the policies of their home university.
 
We have had no reports of suspected or confirmed coronavirus cases affecting participants at the 72nd EERI Annual Meeting. If we are notified by health officials of any tested and verified cases of COVID-19 that occurred during the conference timeframe, we will share that information with attendees. 
 
While this evolving public health situation is challenging our normal operations, we are still confident that EERI can remain an important place for virtual connection with colleagues and remote learning. Thank you for your support and cooperation amidst these new and challenging conditions.
