Special Announcement: About events and meetings during the public health emergency of COVID-19

Washington, DC, March 12, 2020. Faced with the public health emergency situation that different countries are going through due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Young Americas Business Trust (YABT) is following in the upmost vigilant and strict orders, the recommendations and considerations issued by the World Health Organization (WHO) and other organizations that are responding to the emergency situation in the countries in which they carry out their activities.


In this regard, and with the responsibility that the case warrants, we request the organizers of youth dialogues and other activities associated with the Young Americas Forum, as well as other programs and initiatives related to the YABT, to please abide by the recommendations and considerations issued by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the official national entities in charge of managing the emergency situations in their respective countries, in regards to the organization of any type of event and meetings that convene groups of people. (See: WHO - Key planning recommendations for Mass Gatherings in the context of the current COVID-19 outbreak).   


In the same way, we urge you to consider the possibility that the activities be carried out in a virtual format, and if necessary, the YABT will provide you with access to the technological platform with prior coordination and scheduling of the dates that are determined for each case. For more information, you can contact us by email at: forum@yabt.net.


In this delicate occasion, we want to express our solidarity with the countries that are facing the emergency of COVID-19, hoping that the situation will be overcome as soon as possible. Today, more than ever, we must be united and with the spirit of cooperation towards the efforts of the countries, organizations, and people who fight tirelessly to combat COVID-19.
