The COVID-19 situation represents a global health concern that FENS takes seriously. We are monitoring the situation and are closely following recommendations for appropriate action as they become available from national and international health advisory bodies, including the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).
For all upcoming activities, we advise participants, faculty and partners to follow recommendations from their national health authorities and to check the WHO website for updates and advice. In addition, we recommend including cancellation insurance when booking travel.
We are all committed to help ensuring the health of those involved in our activities. FENS will continue monitoring the situation and will provide any updates about our activities through our regular communication channels and below should the situation change.
