Statement: SGAC Statement on the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

The Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) is closely monitoring the evolution of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). SGAC is preparing for potential eventualities that may arise from hosting SGAC events around the globe in the next few months. As part of this preparation, SGAC is taking active measures and precautionary actions to protect the safety of our staff, volunteers, members and event attendees against the COVID-19 threats.

SGAC will strictly follow the national and local health guidelines regarding COVID-19 in the organisation of events and other SGAC activities. The organisation is in close contact with all the event organising teams to respond to the evolving nature of COVID-19 in every country where SGAC plans to host events. Since safety is our utmost priority, SGAC will decide on a case by case whether it is necessary to postpone or cancel a scheduled event based on the guidelines of health authorities and in coordination with our partners. Should an event be cancelled due to COVID-19, delegates, speakers and partners will be informed as soon as possible.

SGAC remains committed to guarantee the health of its employees and volunteers and thus it urges its members to follow the World Health organisation (WHO) advice for basic protective measure against the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). More information below on WHO guidelines:
