The International Aviation Club is aware of the public health concern regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus). We want to share information about what we are doing to prepare for our March Monthly Luncheon on March 19.

We are monitoring the status of COVID-19, including updates from the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as other national and local government authorities. If at any point these organizations advise that action needs to be taken, we will follow their lead and guidance.

The CDC has publicly deemed the health risk of coronavirus for the general American public to be low at this time. Our top priority is the health and safety of all our event participants. At this point in time, we are proceeding as planned, based on monitoring these government organizations, and the March Monthly Luncheon will proceed as planned.

Many events around the U.S. continue to take place and we will continue to monitor the situation and post updates to our website and inform you via email and our website.
