Dear Members

With the novel coronavirus COVID-19 much in the news lately, the JAT Board is keeping an eye on advice from the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare, and has decided to continue with its planned program of events scheduled in March and beyond this year.

We encourage all potential participants to practice good hygiene to protect against infections, such as using a tissue and covering your mouth when you cough or sneeze, washing your hands regularly with soap and water, and taking other usual measures against colds and flu.

Please check the JAT website regularly for any changes to this advice or to the schedule of events.

February 26: The March 7th JATLAW and March 14th TAC/JATPATENT events have been postponed to dates to be announced.
