2020 Manuscript Society Annual Meeting and COVID-19

The local organizers and the Executive Committee of the Manuscript Society are monitoring the spread of Covid-19 for any potential impacts to our annual meeting, May 12-16, 2020.

At this time, we are following the advice of the CDC. While our group would not necessarily fit the CDC’s definition of a large group, we do have a majority of members in the vulnerable age bracket.

We do not anticipate an impact to the annual meeting at this time.  However, we have decided to allow for a full refund of registration fees for anyone who cannot attend due to Covid-19. By revising our refund policy, we hope to allow participants the flexibility to register for the annual meeting and have confidence that The Manuscript Society will provide a full refund upon request.

In the event the annual meeting is cancelled all registrants will receive a full refund of registration costs.

The Society will maintain up to date communication with all of our members through email and announcements here our website.

As of March 10, 2020 there were no reported cases of Covid-19 in Williamsburg. You can monitor developments at https://www.williamsburgva.gov/government/departments-a-h/emergency-preparedness/coronavirus-covid-19
