The World Health Organization (WHO) has determined the outbreak of a new virus, novel coronavirus 2019 (2019-nCoV), is a global health emergency. The ICANN organization is closely monitoring the rapidly evolving situation, but at the moment we have determined that ICANN67 in Cancún, Mexico, will take place as planned.
We know travel is important for much of ICANN's work, however, it is not more important than your safety and well-being. The most up-to-date information about 2019-nCoV can be found from the WHO and the WHO Situation reports. Please consult the latest WHO guidance for travel advice and on how to prevent exposure.
Most airports around the world are conducting additional health screenings, and some countries have imposed travel bans. If you are impacted by travel restrictions, you are welcome to attend ICANN67 remotely. Please take advantage of our robust remote participation tools. You can read more about remote streaming, meeting, and scribing tools here, or reach out to our team with any questions.
The ICANN67 schedule will be released on 17 February. We look forward to your participation, in person or remotely, to make ICANN67 productive and successful.
