We have received several inquiries about the impact of the Coronavirus on the NGFN Conference. The NGFN Conference will continue as planned and we will continue to monitor the current data and risk assessments and work with our host hotel to prioritize attendee and staff safety. The risk of the general public contracting coronavirus in New Orleans is currently low, and there are no cases of COVID-19 in Louisiana. The CDC does not currently have a COVID-19 travel health notice for Continental US. For up to date information on travel check here, and with your local health department. As precautionary measures it is recommended that you:
We ask that you do not travel to the Conference if you currently have symptoms (Fever, Cough, Shortness of breath), or have been in China or another affected area within the past 14 days. More in depth risk assessment and prevention measures are below.
If you would like to cancel your registration, we will refund you less a $100 processing fee through Thursday March 5th at 9am ET. Cancellation requests sent after that deadline will not be honored. We appreciate your understanding. Please send your cancelation requests to email@example.com.
