Dear friends and colleagues,
The PAL 2020 Congress Executive Committee is watching the quickly-evolving situation with COVID-19 and wishes to send its support and best wishes to all those affected by this pandemic. At present time, there are no plans to alter the planning for PAL 2020 in Montreal, scheduled for October 13 - 16, 2020. We are hopeful that this situation will not present the same threat and challenges in the Fall as it currently does. We will continue to monitor all updates and recommendations from the World Health Organization and other global health agencies. PAL’s primary concern remains the health and safety of attendees and the public.
