IHLA is closely monitoring the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation in Illinois and the United States. We are engaging with government agencies and gathering information and guidance regularly. As the association looks ahead to future events, the health and safety of our members is our top priority.

To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, our government is urging people to avoid social gatherings of more than 10 people. The Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) had previously recommended that in-person events with 50 or more people be postponed or cancelled over the next eight weeks. The CDC has also warned vulnerable populations to avoid unnecessary travel at this time. 

While some IHLA events within this window have been postponed or cancelled, IHLA will continue to monitor the circumstances and re-evaluate as necessary. Registration refunds will be issued should we need to cancel any events.

We know this situation will dramatically affect your business and your employees for the foreseeable future, and we are hard at work helping our industry respond to this crisis.
