WAURISA is taking all developments concerning the coronavirus (COVID19) very seriously and will continue to closely monitor the situation. As of March 11th, Governor Jay Inslee instituted a ban on large gatherings and events of 250 people or more in King, Pierce, and Snohomish Counties for the remainder of March. Unless the ban is extended on large events into April and May, WAURISA has no plans to postpone or cancel the Washington GIS Conference scheduled May 18-21st at the Hotel Murano. If the event is cancelled or postponed due to an extended ban our policy will be to issue full refunds to all participants. Health and safety are of the utmost importance to us so we will continue to keep you updated as we gain more information regarding measures taken to keep our members safe. We will update this message with any new developments or information.
