ESGAR 2020 / COVID-19 UPDATES

March 24 update

Due to an order by the Dutch government, introducing stricter measures to combat the coronavirus outbreak, all gatherings (even of less than 100 people) are prohibited until June 1. This is a tightening of the existing ban that applied up to April 6.

The ESGAR 2020 Annual Meeting, with its planned date from May 19 - 22, falls under the scope of this ban. In anticipation of this aggravation of the COVID-19 pandemic and related restrictive measures by the Dutch Government, ESGAR was cancelled on March 20.

Letter of the ESGAR President

March 20 update

As we have seen in the recent past, the coronavirus pandemic has a huge impact on our welfare and educational activities. Statements of public health authorities worldwide recommend to not hold workshops or congresses and furthermore, to also not participate in such activities.

Although the Dutch government has not yet called for the cancellation of major events beyond the date of March 31, we feel that it would be irresponsible towards our ESGAR community and the public health to proceed with the congress at this moment in time. In addition, with travel restrictions elsewhere affecting attendance of both participants and faculty, we cannot guarantee the high scientific quality of our Annual Meeting on the original dates we were striving for.

It is thus with great regret and a very heavy heart that, after careful consideration, ESGAR decided to cancel the 31st Annual Meeting and Postgraduate Course in recognition to the growing health risks related to the coronavirus. Unfortunately, we are not able to postpone the Annual Meeting because we were not able to find an adequate alternative date, despite our efforts and willingness.

Thank you for your understanding in these difficult times, and we wish you all the best. Please stay healthy!
