Coronavirus Statement

Updated 3/18/20

FCCLA is monitoring the current situation regarding the coronavirus. Please review the statement below and continue to check back for updates.

We want to assure you that FCCLA has activated its crisis management plan and is continuously monitoring the current coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. At this time, no federal restrictions are in place to prevent meetings and travel within the United States, including Washington, D.C. Thus far, the travel restrictions issued by the U.S. Government are only for individuals who have been in an affected area or have been exposed to someone infected with COVID-19 in the last 14 days. We are therefore continuing to prepare for the FCCLA National Leadership Conference to take place as planned July 5-9, 2020 in Washington, D.C.

We are following all guidance issued by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). The latest guidance from the CDC encourages preventative measures to limit the spread of any illness, whether it be the flu or COVID-19. 

FCCLA’s cancellation policies allow cancellations for individuals unable to travel due to medical emergency, or unable to travel due to a school district or government issued travel ban. According to our policies, attendees should submit cancellations in the FCCLA registration portal. These requests will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis before the conference.

Be sure to regularly check your email, FCCLA’s social media channels, and website for any updates. Should either the CDC or WHO guidance change, FCCLA will act accordingly and immediately to provide updates through all communication channels.

On a personal note, we want to assure you that above all, FCCLA values your health and wellbeing. FCCLA is striving to react to this virus in a calm and factual manner, while taking into account all of our varied responsibilities and commitments.
