Icon Events and Coronavirus

Icon has been considering the implications of coronavirus and keeping abreast of the advice from the Government.

We will continue to operate business as usual in line with current Government advice, but we recognise that the situation may change over the coming days and we may need to cancel meetings or make alternative arrangements to ensure that both risk and disruption is minimised if the advice changes. We also have a business continuity plan which we are continuing to refine. Thankfully it is entirely feasible for our staff to work at home if necessary, as almost all of our IT systems can be accessed remotely.

In the meantime we ask all Icon members, Group and Network Committees to follow the NHS advice for individuals on mitigating risks, diagnosis and the hazards of travel.

Any questions, please contact the membership team at
