MSAE Statement on COVID-19

The news surrounding the global outbreak of the COVID-19 coronavirus is concerning to everyone. MSAE is paying close attention to what is being recommended by the Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) and U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We advise everyone to do the same for information relevant to our professional and personal routines.

The CDC is now recommending that for the next eight weeks, organizers cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more throughout the U.S.

You may find this document useful in preparing your business office based on recommendations from the World Health Organization.

Please contact us if you have any questions or additional resources for consideration.
