Dear APAS2020 Delegates and Exhibitors,
We note that it has been reported that the recently formed National Cabinet will be meeting this evening to consider recommendations coming from the meeting of the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee taking place today. We understand one issue being discussed is a ban on groups of more than 100 people in enclosed areas.
If the ban is implemented it will directly impact APAS2020. We will monitor the situation closely and make further announcements as soon as possible.
The APAS Committee would like to take this opportunity to thank our delegates and exhibitors for their patience and understanding at this time. We would also like to take this opportunity to remind our delegates that the APAS committee is a committee made up by your fellow surveyors, volunteering their time to organise this conference and that we are doing the best we can in an unprecedented situation. We are faced with making difficult decisions that may have serious follow-on consequences to everyone involved as well as the APAS organisation.
We are relying upon advice from the medical and political leaders of both the State and Commonwealth to make these decisions and we are endeavouring to deliver up to date communications as frequently as possible in order for our delegates to have all necessary information at hand to base their own decisions on.
