ICCN2020 is proceeding as planned, and a great program is in place. ISNCC is aware of the global news regarding the Coronavirus (COVID) and the evolving travel advisories. At the moment, health authorities in the United Kingdom stated that risks to individuals in the UK remain low (https://www.gov.uk/guidance/wuhan-novel-coronavirus-information-for-the-public). We’re following the guidance of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the UK Department of Health and Social Care. We will monitor the UK Foreign Office (https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/china and communicate any changes for arrivals in the UK. Please note that many airports have added additional screening for visitors arriving from China and for those who have visited China recently.
As nurses we know, and the WHO reminds us, frequent hand washing with soap and water is the best way to prevent infections.
