Coronavirus COVID-19 and ANZSPM events

ANZSPM is closely monitoring the outbreak of coronavirus COVID-19 and how it might affect our upcoming events.
We are monitoring this evolving situation via the Australian Department of Health and New Zealand's Ministry of Health websites which regularly provide the latest updated medical advice and official reports on the COVID-19 outbreak.
Our priority is the safety and wellbeing of our members and guests attending any upcoming events. ANZSPM will act on any government advice and keep members and delegates informed of any developments in relation to infection control and our events. 
Both governments are currently advising not to alter arrangements for public events . We encourage delegates to check with their travel insurance provider if they are covered for any cancellations due to the COVID-19 outbreak. 
For information on the coronavirus (COVID-19), please visit the Australian Department of Health website and the New Zealand Ministry of Health website.
