OpenChain and COVID-19 – Update
The OpenChain Project will be following the Linux Foundation guidelines on the viral situation. The final decision for holding or cancelling any event will be made by the community in question. Example: if the OpenChain Japan Work Group decides to cancel a meeting, we cancel the meeting. The same holds true worldwide.
"The Linux Foundation is continuously monitoring the Novel Coronavirus situation to ensure the safety of our event participants and staff. We will be following all recommended guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) as the situation progresses.
Despite the cancellation of MWC Barcelona, many other significant conferences are still occurring and we have no plans to cancel events in general. Note that the WHO is currently advising against the application of any restrictions on international traffic. Based on the information currently available on the outbreak, the CDC is recommending standard safety practices that should be instituted during any flu season, and there are no US Dept of State Travel Advisories for countries other than China with relation to Novel Coronavirus.”
