Dear PMI Community,

We trust you have all heard the presentation by our President Ramaphosa Sunday night, 15 March, during which he declared a state of disaster concerning the coronavirus, COVID-19.  In keeping with the guidelines President Ramaphosa communicated concerning social distancing, the PMI South Africa Chapter is canceling all physical events for the near future.  This is to support the national effort to contain and mitigate the virus. 

We plan to develop virtual events that will enable our community to continue professional development and to benefit from networking.  This will take us a little time to organize.  Please be patient as we plan these virtual events.  These events will be available nationwide.

We implore our PM community and families to follow the guidelines set out by the President and to consult with legitimate sources of information on the coronavirus.  These sources are https://www.gov.za/NovelCoronavirus and https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019.  Please follow guidelines for consulting with your physician to determine whether you require a test.

Please avoid passing misinformation or information from questionable sources.  Our full cooperation with the preventive guidelines from official government and public health sources is important for stopping the spread of the infection and protecting ourselves, our families and our communities.
