Out of an abundance of caution for our employees, customers, and the community of Seattle, CTL has made the decision not to participate in the March 5-6 2020 NCCE Conference in Seattle due to the ongoing Covid-19 outbreak in Washington State.
This has been a difficult decision to make, and one that we do not take lightly. However, we believe that this is the right decision given that:
- The State of Washington and King County have declared states of emergency
- Governor Inslee has asked people to consider avoiding large events http://bit.ly/32PyhrO
- Schools around the state have closed
- The CDC has issued guidance that communities may start trying to limit the exposure by social distancing. Social distancing is the practice of reducing face to face contacts to prevent spread of a contagion in community settings. https://cnn.it/38rsidP
