Bill, John, others,

To respond to John's question a bit more directly - No there has not been any T10 officers discussion regarding consideration of cancelling the T10 face to face meeting.

I've been involved in a number of discussions outside of T10 recently and the feedback has all been that domestic travel to small events with participants from the US and Canada is fine.  Participants from many other areas are also generally OK but most of our participants are from the US and Canada so I only mention those two.

Is there anybody planning to attend the March T10 meeting that is not from the US or Canada?

While Florida has declared a state of emergency, the two potential cases are on the opposite side of the state from where we are meeting.

Are there any representatives who will not be able to attend due to company travel restrictions?

Thank you,

Florida has declared a state of emergency due to novel coronavirus cases (one maybe community spread):

We're up to seven cases in Santa Clara County and 40 throughout California (thanks for the planning Mr. Great Federal Government).
Orange County and Sacramento are in there too.

My company hasn't forbidden domestic travel (yet?), but international is highly restricted.

Has anyone been told/asked to cancel?
