GLOBE Series is paying close attention to new developments with the Novel Coronavirus originating in China. The Public Health Agency of Canada has assessed the public health risk associated with Novel Coronavirus as low for Canada and for Canadian travellers.

We’re following the guidance of the World Health Organization (WHO) and we’re taking proactive steps, like adding hand sanitizer stations throughout the Vancouver Convention Centre, to help reduce health risks at the event. We encourage attendees to monitor the Public Health Agency of Canada and the CDC website for additional information, and review and follow the WHO’s Travel Advice as they make their way to Vancouver, as well as its recommendations for protecting themselves from an infection.
