International Services Symposium on Forced Migration: Solutions and Challenges
An important event update from the American Red Cross:
In light of guidance by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local public health departments, the American Red Cross and our event partners have decided, out of an abundance of caution, to postpone this Force Migration Symposium due to growing concerns of the coronavirus (COVID-19). We will update our event partners, this webpage and attendees via email notification when new dates have been determined.
The American Red Cross is closely monitoring this evolving situation and stands ready to aid response and preparedness efforts. Please review this information update, which provides a brief overview of Red Cross response work so far, both overseas and here at home. It also shares precautions we are taking to protect the blood supply, collection staff, and blood donors, as well as common sense safety tips and emergency preparedness actions you can take now to help protect you and your family. For the latest information on Coronavirus 2019 disease, please visit the U.S. Centers for Disease Control website.
As we watch the unfolding of the effects of coronavirus around the world, we offer our condolences to its many victims and our gratitude to the thousands of health care workers fighting its spread.
We apologize for the inconvenience and greatly appreciate your patience, understanding and flexibility.
