Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The National Training & Simulation Association is closely following developments regarding COVID-19 and diligently examining each event to determine the best course of action. At this time, iFEST 2020 is still scheduled to take place on August 17 - 19 in Alexandria, VA. Any updates will be posted online here.

The health and safety of our members, registrants, exhibitors, and staff constitute our highest priority, and we will continually monitor reports from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), and the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) in order to adjust plans as needed.

NTSA is implementing all guidance and recommended safety measures issued by WHO, CDC, DoD, and OPM as well as state and local health authorities. We will work with all conference partners to ensure the safety of all meeting and conference participants.

All participants can expect to see heightened levels of cleanliness and on-site accommodations to actively encourage all participants to take common-sense precautions following CDC guidelines.

The CDC and WHO websites are the best resources for staying up to date on this rapidly evolving situation.

Both the WHO and CDC recommend basic personal hygiene and healthy travel practices to reduce the transmission of disease, including the following:

Healthy Travel Practices

  • Wash hands often and for at least 20 seconds
  • Cough into your elbow and sneeze into a tissue
  • Stay home when you are sick, except to get medical care
  • Stay up to date on vaccinations
  • Avoid contact with people who are already sick
  • Avoid contact with animals while traveling
  • Travel with hand sanitizer and wipes
  • Avoid touching your face
