Preventative Measures Being Taken at RefComm Events
Before the meeting
The health and safety of our customers and staff is our number one priority. We strongly urge exhibitors and visitors to refer to the guidelines and protocols as suggested by the WHO www.who.int and local /national public health authorities to contain and mitigate against any further spread of the virus.
If you have any concerns and are feeling unwell, you may wish to reconsider your attendance at the event.
We welcome customers who wish to participate in our events and who are not impacted by travel restrictions. Please check the latest travel advice and entry guidelines for the country to which you wish to travel before making arrangements. For example, several countries have imposed travel restrictions to and from mainland China, Italy, and parts of South Korea.
What to expect onsite
We are actively working with all our event venues to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all participants. We will post an update shortly on what health and safety precautions each venue is taking.
Healthy meeting practices
- Wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds.
- Use hand sanitizer gel if soap and water are not available.
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze.
- Dispose of used tissues immediately and wash your hands afterwards.
The health and well-being of our clients and colleagues remains our #1 priority, so we will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates accordingly. If you have additional questions, don’t hesitate to contact us (360.966.7251 or email@example.com)
