At this time, SAS Global Forum is moving forward as planned. Attendees should monitor the situation reports from the World Health Organization and the latest travel advisories from International SOS.

Thank you @mendezla for this information. I'm sad to say that I've had to cancel my attendance at the conference due to non-essential business travel restrictions recently put in place by our executive team. It's a prudent decision for such a large company. I'm disappointed, as I always get great value out of the conference, but I look forward to reading the papers after the conference and to joining everyone at the 2021 conference. Wishing you all good health and a successful conference!
Perhaps, at the registration desk, there might be a poster showing the elbow-bump greeting. My wife used to go to public health association meetings, where this was sometimes put into practice.
So far, I'll be there.
