AdvaMed Coronavirus Precautions

AdvaMed is closely monitoring the international outbreak of a respiratory illness caused by a coronavirus first identified in Wuhan, China (COVID-19). According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as of February 26, the immediate risk of this new virus to the American public is believed to be low at this time; however, the AdvaMed team has increased precautionary measures, training, and communication.

The number one priority for AdvaMed’s Events and Education team is the health and safety of our event participants. We are diligently following releases and guidelines from public health agencies, including the CDC and World Health Organization (WHO), and will take measures at our upcoming events to increase sanitization efforts and minimize the spread of germs.

While attending our events, we ask you to practice general flu prevention, including:

  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue or sleeve
  • Wash your hands regularly
  • Avoid touching your face
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Get your flu shot – it’s never too late
  • Stay home if you are feeling ill; call your doctor to let them know your symptoms and travel history

For more information on COVID-19, please visit the CDC. If you have any questions regarding AdvaMed events, please contact


AdvaMed’s Events and Education covers the regulatory, reimbursement, legal & compliance, and sales & marketing industry environments.? We offer both members and nonmembers an opportunity to network and learn all year long, year after year. Our courses are designed to assist professionals with training, strategic planning and execution — providing new information and practices for immediate implementation.
