RAMPUP SAN FRANCISCO, MARCH 2 & 3, 2020
Responses to Coronavirus Questions
Is there a possibility of RampUp being canceled due to coronavirus (COVID-19)? If it is not canceled, what preventative implementations do you have in place?
There are currently no plans to cancel RampUp San Francisco 2020. We are working with the facilities for the RampUp campus (the Fairmont, InterContinental Mark Hopkins, and the Masonic) to ensure we are taking the necessary health precautions for a safe and successful RampUp. The RampUp team will continue to follow the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), and is in close communication with the City of San Francisco to monitor all new developments pertaining to COVID-19.
Below are the preventative implementations being taken:
- Sanitization stations will be on-site at every venue. The CDC also recommends frequent hand-washing. If possible, refrain from handshaking to mitigate risks.
- Hands should be washed often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available.
- For those who are feeling unwell, we will have a doctor on site at the Fairmont. Please visit the RampUp Info Desk for more information. Additionally, the Info Desk will have information on nearby hospitals and doctors.
- Each venue has information posted from WHO on how to keep yourself healthy.
- The Masonic and hosting hotels are following recommendations in the U.S. EPA’s Emerging Pathogen Policy regarding the use of cleaning disinfectants effective against COVID-19.
I am seeing several news articles about a declared local emergency in San Francisco—is LiveRamp aware of this?
The City of San Francisco has proactively declared a local emergency to enable continued preparedness for COVID-19. The city of San Francisco is continuing to report there are no confirmed cases in San Francisco.
The RampUp team is in close communication with the City of San Francisco and will continue to follow the guidance of the CDC.
Additional precautions from the City of San Francisco, San Francisco International Airport, and the U.S. State Department:
- The U.S. State Department has stated that U.S. citizens returning from Mainland China in the previous 14 days may be subject to additional health screenings and potential self-quarantine. A January 31st Presidential Proclamation has barred entry to most foreign nationals who have traveled to China within the past 14 days.
- At San Francisco International Airport, the CDC is conducting health screenings for eligible arriving international passengers.
- Fact sheets and frequently asked questions are available by visiting www.sfdph.org and www.sf72.org.
- The CDC’s situation summary continues to report that the health risk from COVID-19 for the general American public is considered low. According to its Persons Under Investigation report, there are 14 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the United States.
- Up-to-date information on COVID-19 (including prevention tips and how to recognize symptoms) can be found in this detailed Q&A issued by the WHO.
