Coronavirus Safety Measures

CBD Global Summit is continuously monitoring the Coronavirus situation to ensure the safety of our event participants and staff. We will be following all recommended guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) as the situation progresses.

For the safety of our event participants, we will implement safety measures and guidelines to ensure everyone’s health and wellbeing. This includes:

  • Providing plentiful sanitation stations onsite at the event with alcohol-based hand sanitiser, wipes and tissues.
  • Providing signage onsite reminding delegates to practice good hygiene, i.e to cover your mouth and nose with a tissue (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze; avoid touching your hands, nose, and mouth to avoid transferring germs from surfaces. Wash your hands with an alcohol-based sanitiser and/or soap and water right away.
  • We will regularly sanitise all surfaces through the event space and communicate with the venues to do the same.
  • Advice to sponsors on effective cleaning and disinfection of their stands and providing them with the necessary disinfection materials to do so.
  • We will be sanitising speaker microphones between each speaker’s use.
  • Requesting that anyone sick or experiencing any cold/flu-like symptoms stay home for their own safety and the safety of others and consider substituting a co-worker to attend in their place.
  • We ask that any delegates onsite who might begin experience cold or flu-like symptoms (fever, cough, trouble breathing), to please seek medical care right away.

We will continue to check the latest official information leading up to the event. We understand that there is a lot of fear and uncertainty right now as we are in the early stages of the outbreak and a lot is still unknown, however, we want to ensure we’re making decisions based on factual recommendations rather than rumour or fear.
