COVID-19 Travel Concerns

Many of you have observed the conferences that have been cancelled around the country as a result of the presence of Covid-19. We do not anticipate this being a problem for our conference in July as that is still a few months away. That being said, we are continuing to monitor guidance related to the coronavirus (COVID-19) from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other organizations, we are committed to taking appropriate precautions to provide a safe environment that does not place our staff or event attendees at undue risk. At this time, the CDC has not indicated in any way that organizations in the United States should consider postponing or canceling events.

If Penn State University recommended or required that the conference be cancelled then your registration fee would be refunded. You would need to call to cancel the hotel reservation and any travel reservations. For more information on best practices for prevention, please visit the CDC coronavirus (COVID-19) web page.

Given the evolving nature of COVID-19, Distance Library Services Conference will continue to closely monitor developments. In addition to safeguarding the health and safety of our event attendees and employees, we remain committed to providing clear and timely communications leading up to and at our events. Should we receive information that would prompt us to make adjustments to our event schedule, we will immediately notify all impacted parties via email and post regular updates on our website.
