AAGP Leadership, like you, is concerned about the growing spread of the Coronavirus (also known as COVID-19), and the impact that it will have here in the United States.
We looking forward to welcoming you to San Antonio for the AAGP 2020 Annual Meeting March 13-16. AAGP is committed to providing a productive meeting that fosters diversity, open dialogue and exchange of scientific ideas. We care about you and are working with our partners in San Antonio to ensure a safe environment for our community and the 2020 AAGP Annual Meeting.
At this time, no federal restrictions are in place to prevent travel within the United States including San Antonio. However, misinformation – in the news, on social media, and word of mouth – has led to rising concerns and premature calls for registration and meeting cancellations.
AAGP and our partners in San Antonio are closely monitoring developments related to the respiratory illness COVID-19, commonly referred to as the Coronavirus, and its potential impact on travel to, and within, the United States. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is monitoring the situation along with local and state authorities in the state of Texas.
The San Antonio International Airport and the Grand Hyatt San Antonio are all operating normally. Please know that any changes to federal, state, or local protocols for the San Antonio area will be reported to AAGP immediately, and, as usual, we will comply with any applicable directives.
on Coronavirus is an excellent source of up-to-the-minute information. The U.S. Travel Association encourages travelers to monitor and follow guidance offered by the CDC, which currently advises travelers to “practice usual precautions.”
With the situation evolving rapidly, we also encourage AAGP 2020 attendees, vendors, and staff, to consult the following resources and CDC recommendations as you prepare for the meeting. You can count on AAGP to share information and provide updates as they become available.
