Dear NABJ Members & Supporters: 

This morning, the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) was alerted that one of the attendees participating in the Millennial Media Summit on March 7 in New York at Columbia University tested positive for the Coronavirus. Registrants that provided contact information immediately received an email alert. 

We are encouraging all members and NABJ event attendees to use precaution and practice the safety guidelines as outlined by the CDC.

  • For guidelines on what to do if you think you are sick, click here.
  • For guidelines on how to protect yourself, click here.

In accordance with HIPAA laws and out of respect for the privacy of our members and registrants, we will not be releasing the individual’s name. However, we have extended our thoughts and prayers to the individual and also extend our thoughts and prayers to anyone impacted by the virus.

We remind our members to be careful as they work in the field covering this pandemic and to remember the importance of self-care during this time.
