COVID-19 Update

Updated as of 30 March 2020

”The WSAVA Congress is the cornerstone of our educational activities and is also an annual forum in which our member association representatives participate in important decision-making and committee work. We are committed to ensuring that our 2020 Congress will take place as scheduled in Warsaw, Poland, in September but we are monitoring the evolution of the pandemic closely and will keep you posted.’‘ – Frédéric Gaschen, Chair Scientific Program Committee


”During the COVID-19 emergency, our responsibility as veterinarians is not only to be protectors of animal health and welfare, but also to play a vital role in the One Health response. As a global veterinary community we can work together to support our medical colleagues, share our knowledge and skills, for the betterment of both animal and human health.” – Shane Ryan, WSAVA President

As the the COVID-19 outbreak continues to evolve and some major events are being cancelled or postponed in Europe, we want to reassure you that preparations of the WSAVA/FECAVA 2020 Congress are ongoing. We currently have no plans to postpone or cancel the Congress.

With several months to the Congress, we are waiting to see how the situation evolves.

The safety and health of all those attending is our main concern and we are monitoring the situation very closely. We are following the recommendations of the World Health Organization and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) and well as those of local authorities.

We will continue to monitor the information and recommendations and will update you should the situation change. Updates will be provided.

In the meantime, we kindly ask for your support, and wish you, your colleagues, pets and families good health and resilience.

As the COVID-19 virus is also a threat to companion animal welfare, WSAVA’s One Health and Scientific Committees have prepared an advisory to help members advise pet owners in this situation. You can read the advisory here.
