Covid-19 is here to stay...

While the SDB 82nd Annual Meeting was a huge success with almost 900 attendees, we have been informed that a number of registrants have tested positive for COVID-19 virus.  We are sorry for those who are infected and wish them speedy recovery. We highly recommend that everybody takes a test, being symptomatic or not. Please follow CDC recommendations and visit their COVID-19 page for additional information, including isolation periods for those who test positive.

The SARS-CoV-2 virus and variants are here to stay, thus bringing infection risks to everybody, especially in closed quarters. Even though mask is no longer a requirement, we recommend that you wear it if you are at large group gatherings, especially indoors.  It is a personal preference, but there is some responsibility towards our families and colleagues to help keep everybody safe.

Wishing you all a healthy and relaxing summer. 

Ida Chow, PhD
SDB Executive Director

PS – Please isolate when tested COVID-positive.
