JCI EC 2020 BEGINS
Important Information regarding the Coronavirus
In the global environment within which our JCI Members operate, travel plays an important role as people gather for congresses and events. JCI EC 2020 and JCI HQ trust that our members and partners continue to take advice from their respective healthcare and government authorities when travelling and attending events worldwide.
The global outbreak of the Novel Coronavirus in the Chinese city of Wuhan and province of Hubei, has had major impacts on travel around the world.
At this time, The Health Service Executive of Ireland (HSE) has determined that risk within Ireland continues to be considered low to moderate.
Regardless, we have taken additional precautionary measures to further support our high standard of cleanliness. These include:
- Implementing enhanced cleaning and sanitizing protocols by our housekeeping team.
- Scheduling additional housekeeping staff during event days for greater coverage of high-touch areas.
- Placing additional hand sanitizing stations throughout both buildings. Delegates are also encouraged to follow proper hygiene etiquette while attending the event.
The World Health Organization recommends that individuals:
- Frequently clean hands by using alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water.
- When coughing and sneezing, cover mouth and nose with flexed elbow or tissue – throw the tissue away immediately and wash hands.
- Avoid close contact with anyone who has a fever and cough.
To stay up-to-date on this issue, we recommend visiting the World Health Organization’s website.
