Dear AAMP Members, 2020 Convention Registrants and Exhibitors:

The American Association of Meat Processors (AAMP) continues to closely monitor information on the Coronavirus (COVID-19); as shared by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Please know that the well-being of our members is our utmost priority. As you prepare and make plans, please consider these CDC recommendations for all travelers to take routine precautions and practice good hygiene; including:

  • Avoid contact with sick people.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Clean your hands often by washing them with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains 60%-95% alcohol. Soap and water should be used if hands are visibly dirty.
  • It is especially important to clean hands after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose.

AAMP will continue to monitor the situation and to keep our members and attendees informed. For more information on COVID-19, please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s website: www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-nCoV/summary.html
