2020 Day Seminar on Diseases of Aquatic Animals - CANCELLED!!!
CEU Cardenal Herrera UniversityLatin Comparative Pathology Group
Date: Saturday, May 16, 2020
Duration: 1 day(s)
Location: School of Veterinary Medicine
University CEU Cardenal Herrera
46115 Alfara del Patriarca, Valencia (Spain)
After much consideration of the expanding coronavirus outbreak in Europe and around the globe, and in careful consideration of the safety and welfare of our course participants, the Foundation has decided to postpone our upcoming course in Valencia.

This is not a decision that we have come to lightly, as we consider the impact of the virus on regional and international travel as well as the potential restrictions that may be placed on exposed individuals upon entry or exit to areas in which the coronavirus has been identified. We believe that none of our registrants are in a position to be quarantined or delayed either abroad or at home, not to mention the possibility of exposure during travel, or in congregation at a Foundation course. The uncertainly surrounding this entire global event is unfortunate, but we are confident that in retrospect, this will prove to be a prudent decision.

Please be advised that this is not an isolated incident - we are also at this time canceling events in a number of other countries in Europe and Asia, and currently evaluating our entire slate of international courses as this event unfolds. It is our promise, having already discussed this matter with Dr. Mike Garner, our speaker, and Dr. Joaquin Ortega Porcel, our local host, that we will reschedule the meeting at the earliest time when it is appropriate to do so.

Finally, with regard to our course in early April in Lleida, that course is still open at this time. We will be evaluating the situation closely and inform participants of any changes.
