IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT OF SPUMS AND CONVENER

2020 SPUMS ANNUAL SCIENTIFIC MEETING, TUTUKAKA, NEW ZEALAND

Dear members, conference delegates and accompanying guests

It is with regret that the Executive Committee of the South Pacific Underwater Medicine Society has today announced the cancellation of our Annual Scientific Meeting planned for 19-24 April 2020 at Tutukaka based on the rapidly evolving situation around COVID-19 (Coronavirus). In addition, the World Health Organisation has declared Corona virus outbreak a pandemic. This is an unprecedented situation in our living memory.

The decision has not been made lightly, but the Executive believes the Society needs to respond appropriately to recent travel restrictions imposed on many of our delegates by Australian and New Zealand Health Services, current advice from the New Zealand Ministry of Health, and to eliminate health risks for delegates associated with travelling to and attending the meeting.
The ASM organising team are currently working through the process of cancellation and will contact all delegates with more information as it becomes available.


Yours sincerely

 

Clinical Professor David Smart
SPUMS President
On behalf of SPUMS Executive Committee

and

DR Greg van der Hulst
SPUMS 2020 ASM Convener
