Coronavirus – Implications for Training

calendar March 4, 2020

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak is causing considerable uncertainty regarding people’s travel plans and schedules. and GeoLogica is actively monitoring the situation and reviewing up-to-date advice from the World Health Organisation (WHO).

The current and dynamic world-wide Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak is causing considerable uncertainty regarding people’s travel plans and schedules. GeoLogica is actively monitoring the situation and reviewing up-to-date advice from the World Health Organisation (WHO) and relevant government advisory websites (some of these are listed below). The reality is that in the United States and most of Western Europe the risk of infection is low outside of local hotspots but this may change rapidly and we are watching the situation daily.

At present we are considering our program of training courses with an emphasis on those classes that are 1) due to run within the next quarter (up to June) and 2) those that require participants to travel – i.e. field courses. Depending on the locations and amount of travel involved, we will be working proactively with our tutors and clients to schedule courses to ensure no unnecessary risks are taken. We anticipate further developments in the next week and will provide updates as required.
