Waste Management Symposia (WMS) has been made aware that one WM2020 conference attendee is undergoing testing for COVID-19 and that one other attendee is experiencing flu-like like symptoms and is restricting social contact for 14 days. Out of an abundance of caution, WMS thought it was advisable to notify all of the conference attendees of this development so that you can comply with any instructions you are receiving from your employers or relevant health officials. If you begin experiencing any of the symptoms of COVID-19, please consult the guidelines from the CDC and your local and state health departments. If you are experiencing the symptoms associated with the coronavirus and particularly if you are confirmed as having COVID-19, please advise WMS of this so we can update our notifications to public health officials.
With respect to our upcoming scheduled conferences and meetings, WMS will continue to monitor the developing guidance of public health authorities and any relevant legal restrictions. WMS will update our events webpage if meetings are cancelled and/or alternative online programming is developed.
Chairman of the Board
