The 2020 DoDIIS Worldwide Conference is scheduled to go on as planned 2-5 August 2020 in Phoenix, AZ and registration will be opening soon!
At this point, with the rapidly changing environment surrounding COVID-19, there are still many unknowns. We talk and meet regularly with the DIA and collectively, we are actively moving forward with planning and are committed to delivering the DoDIIS Worldwide Conference that our attendee and exhibitors have come to expect. We remain watchful but also focused on delivering a safe, secure, and successful event for all participants.
We continue to follow the recommendations of local and federal health officials and will continue to monitor and assess the situation as we near August and will immediately notify participants if any changes need to be made.
While COVID-19 is a global health concern, it’s our collective responsibility to focus on facts and use common sense and sound judgement to not spread unnecessary panic. It is important to follow official health and travel advisories. We will continue to closely monitor travel updates from the CDC as well as advisories from the State Department.
NCSI will continue to honor our exhibitor contracts and policies which allow for flexibility and changes, as we always have in the past.
We strongly encourage attendees and exhibitors to follow the guidance of the CDC for everyday preventative actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses:
- Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
- If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
- Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Stay home when sick.
- Cover a cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
