 JLC LIVE New England sets eyes on Providence: Update regarding novel Coronavirus

March 3, 2020 – The JLC LIVE New England team is continuing to closely monitor the developments of the Novel Coronavirus, COVID-19, through the advice of public health authorities. We wish to reassure our visitors, customers and colleagues their health and safety is always the top priority.

JLC LIVE New England enjoys the support of many regional brands, and to date, we don’t have any exhibitors based in areas restricted for travel from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. However, as this situation is continuing to evolve, we do have a contingency plan in place.  Our attendees and exhibitors can all be reassured JLC LIVE New England is going ahead as planned. Registrations for the show are tracking significantly ahead year on year, and it’s entirely business as usual for this amazing event.

We continue to follow all safety advice and precautions as recommended by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, as well as the World Health Organization (WHO) in addition to the RI Department of Health, PEMA, and the RI Emergency Management Agency who are monitoring COVID-19.  Attendees are recommended to maintain good hand, respiratory and personal hygiene. We’re working closely with the Rhode Island Convention Center to enhance preventative measures, including additional hand sanitizers, signage advising of the correct methods to wash hands, and wipes available for microphones and podiums. The Rhode Island Department of Health reported it is not seeing widespread community transmission in Rhode Island and the general level of risk for people in Rhode Island is still low.
