Master's and Candidates,


Due to the significant concern globally regarding the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). The Executive Committee has been watching the progress, and reviewing the information from the CDC and other sources to stay informed given the upcoming plans for the Master's Clinic in Alabama later this month.


Because the safety of all WTSDA members is of the utmost importance, the Executive Committee has made the difficult decision to cancel this year's 2020 US Master's Clinic. The travel involved, risk profile of the attendees, health status of individuals (both on arrival and the potentially weakened state after days of significant physical exertion) and the ease of potential transmission due to the close physical contact inherent in our TSD training were all considered in making this most difficult decision. Work is being done to see if it will be possible to conduct certain activities that would have occurred at the Clinic instead in Greensboro in connection with the World Championship. If that becomes possible, plans will be promptly communicated to all. Information regarding refunds and other logistical information will follow promptly. In the mean-time, should you need to contact an airline to make changes to the ticket, we suggest seeing if this ticket can be changed to a ticket to Greensboro for the World Championship.


We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause, but your safety and the safety of your family and students takes precedence. Should you have any questions, please reach out to a member of the Executive Committee or WTSDA Headquarters.


Respectfully,
WTSDA Executive Committee
