Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

We are actively monitoring WHO statements and travel advice on the current outbreak of COVID-19. In its latest statement on 29 February WHO continues to advise against the application of travel or trade restrictions to countries experiencing COVID-19 outbreaks, and WHO does not currently recommend quarantine or other travel restrictions for healthy travellers. We advise participants to pay attention to travel advice from your own country’s government and ensure you have adequate travel and health insurance in place.

The organisation of the conference remains on schedule and the normal participant cancellation policy applies. If anything changes we will inform participants as soon as possible.

Protective measures for participants

  • Please follow WHO guidance on protective measures everyone can take against COVID-19 (for example practising hand hygiene, cough etiquette and keeping a distance of at least one metre from persons showing symptoms)
  • There will be hand sanitisers positioned around the conference venue for everyone’s use
  • WHO advises that wearing a face mask is not recommended for healthy participants, and is only recommended for participants who have respiratory symptoms (for example, cough)
  • According to WHO, common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. If you show symptoms of COVID-19, please self-isolate and seek medical advice. For local health advice, please call the Portuguese National Health Service advice line on 808 24 24 24.
