ISDP leadership is closely monitoring the rapid developments pertaining to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and following the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO), along with public health authorities local to the Washington, D.C. area, site of ISDP 2020. The ReOpen DC Advisory Group has presented a set of reopening recommendations to D.C. Mayor Muriel Browser for her consideration. These presented recommendations contain four stages to a safe reopening, with stage four being the only stage that would currently allow for public gatherings over 250 people. The mayor has indicated that she will continue to monitor data to determine D.C.’s readiness to resume any activities, including moving through the stages. At this time, we continue to work toward holding the 53rd annual meeting from October 21-23, 2020 in Bethesda, and at the same time we are making plans for remote presentations. We will make an announcement regarding the format of the meeting as soon as possible and we apologize for this inconvenience. The early bird registration deadline has also been extended, to August 15, 2020.
