|Registrants for Advocacy Day:
With so many unknowns about the developing coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel the upcoming Advocacy Day on March 18 in Madison.
Because of the limited testing capability for COVID-19 in Wisconsin over the past few weeks, there are still many unknowns – including how many people may be infected and whether community spread has already occurred in our state. What we do know is that patients in Wisconsin are best served if our nation-leading health care facilities are fully staffed and available to rapidly respond to any developments. The health and safety of our members is paramount as well as the health and safety of the patients they serve.
While this was a very difficult decision to reach, we believe it is the wise one considering the facts we know – and don’t know – as of today.
Thank you for your understanding. And thank you for your dedication to your community’s and Wisconsin’s health.
