ASTMH understands that the challenges of COVID-19 are far from over for far too many around the world. With our colleagues in mind, we created a virtual option for this year’s Annual Meeting for those unable to participate in person and the added convenience of on-demand sessions for up to one year.

The 2021 Annual Meeting is being planned as a hybrid conference with in-person presentations and an online platform for virtual attendance. Poster presentations will only be available online. The Scientific Program Chair and the Annual Meeting COVID-19 Biosafety Task Force are actively monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and transmission patterns to assure a safe and healthy meeting. Specific information regarding ASTMH conference safety measures will be provided in September. We are adhering to the CDC’s recommendations for indoor mask wearing and following guidance from the Maryland Department of Health and local regulations from Prince George’s County (MD) Health Department. In addition, we are in regular communication with the management at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland, the 2021 conference location.
