CXL Experts' Meeting 2020 COVID-19 policy

Dear Faculty and Delegates,

Thank you for your interest in the CXL Experts’ Meeting scheduled for December 17-19, 2020 in Zurich, Switzerland.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year has been unpredictable and challenging in terms of international travel and congress planning.

As many congresses have either cancelled or provided a virtual program, the planning committee has already committed to providing a hybrid-version of the congress where the faculty travel in person to the meeting, while the delegates participate online.

To ensure the faculty’s safety and comfort for travel to Switzerland, the following recommendations have been summarized for you:

Before you travel, please check the following:

  1. Did you arrive from a country of “increased risk”? Or, were you in an “increased risk” country of for > 24 hours in the past 14 days? The current Swiss Governement manadatory quarantine list is available here.
    • Yes: 10-day quarantine applies (click here)
    • No: quarantine does not apply

Please also note that there are safety precautions for the faculty’s stay at the Mövenpick Zurich Airport Hotel to increase their safety and protection of others.  Please read them (click here).

Also, please visit the congress website for continual updates.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation!
