AALL eBriefing / AALL Is Closely Monitoring the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Last updated March 12, 2020

With the increasing news coverage of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus, or COVID-19, AALL wants to assure you that the association is monitoring the situation closely. The safety of our members and program attendees is our top priority.

As registration is now open for the 2020 AALL Annual Meeting & Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana, July 11-14, and several other education programs are planned in Chicago, AALL is following the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the City of Chicago, and the State of Illinois. All AALL education programs coming up in Chicago (the 2020 AALL Leadership Academy and the CI  Strategies & Analysis program) are currently being evaluated. A formal decision will be announced soon.

AALL is also in regular communication with the Louisiana Department of Health. At this point it’s too early to make a determination on whether or not to cancel the AALL Annual Meeting, so as of now the conference is scheduled to take place as planned. As this situation unfolds, please do what’s safe for you.

While the world’s best scientists and medical professionals are working to manage and to treat the coronavirus, we encourage all of you to keep safe and monitor the COVID-19 updates.

Any changes/updates to this statement will be shared with all of you promptly; you are also encouraged to visit our COVID-19 Updates and Resources page for information about impacts within AALL and the greater legal information community. If you have additional questions or comments, please contact AALL’s Headquarters Office at 312.939.4764. Thank you.
