Recommendations for COVID-19 and Other Infectious Diseases

The American College of Gastroenterology endorses evidence-based public health measures designed to prevent and minimize the spread of infectious diseases. To support safely and responsibly convening at ACG’s educational programs, the College strongly encourages all in-person attendees at its meetings to follow national and local public health recommendations. While the College has convened meetings safely in the current environment, ACG cannot guarantee that an attendee will not be exposed to infectious diseases. Anyone experiencing symptoms should refrain from in-person attendance and instead participate in those programs available through virtual access. ACG will continue to monitor the situation and make necessary and appropriate adjustments.
