Impact of coronavirus on meetings

NRF has been in close contact with federal agencies that serve on the president’s Coronavirus Task Force, including regularly scheduled conference calls and calls we have hosted for our members. Despite the latest message from health officials related to the spread of the COVID-19 virus in the United States, to date new cases in the United States and in North America are at a minimum. As a result, the virus has not impacted the timing or execution of our meetings or programs.

We continue to monitor the situation closely and will provide regular and timely updates to our special Coronavirus resource page on NRF’s website. Rest assured, we will take whatever measures are necessary to ensure the health and safety of our employees and members, as well as NRF program visitors and partners. Please contact Jon Gold if you have any questions.
