Dear members of IVSA,
as you are all well aware the world is dealing with a pandemic of a disease called ‘COVID-19’ right now. As veterinary professionals we have the ability and responsibility to acknowledge these public health threats and act on them to the best of our abilities, which at the moment means trying to keep the spread of the disease to a minimum.
This is why, starting now, we will be cancelling all international IVSA events (including exchanges) until at least May 31st. Regarding local events, we urge you to follow your local guidelines and also to follow the WHO guidelines to limit disease spread. We will keep our website up to date if the decision is made to extend this deadline, so please check that for future reference.
We know this pandemic has already impacted a lot of IVSA members and will probably impact a lot more in the time to come, and we believe we can keep the IVSA spirit alive and well, even if it has to be online instead of in person.
If you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to contact any member of the Executive Committee.
The IVSA Executive Committee 2019-2020
