e-Health2020 and COVID-19

e-Health Conference Hosts   |   March 6, 2020

Preparations for the e-Health 2020 Conference and Tradeshow in Vancouver May 31-June 3 are proceeding as planned. The conference hosts are monitoring the situation closely with the health and safety of our attendees, staff, and volunteers as a top priority.

The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) has assessed the public health risk associated with COVID-19 as low for Canada. Public health risk is continually reassessed as new information becomes available.

Tourism Vancouver Update 
Posted March 5, 2020

COVID-19 is being effectively monitored, controlled and treated in British Columbia and Canada. The Public Health Agency of Canada is actively monitoring the situation and working with the World Health Organization and other international partners. As such, the risk of transmission in Metro Vancouver – and by extension the country – is low. Vancouver remains a safe and welcoming destination for all travelers.

Tourism Vancouver is working closely with key industry partners including the hotel community, Destination British Columbia and Destination Canada as the situation evolves. We will align with them on the deployment of any marketing activities in market, and decisions will be made collectively as needed.
