Notice Regarding the Zika Virus in Miami
Mosquitoes carrying the Zika virus have been reported within a limited area of Miami according to the Greater Miami Convention and Visitor Bureau. The Annual Conference hotel is not located in the area currently under investigation. Based on the CDC guidelines, the risk of infection is very low for the majority of people. However, the CDC encourages women who are pregnant or are planning to become pregnant as well as anyone with a compromised immune system or chronic disease that makes them more susceptible to severe infection to consult with their physician if they are concerned about traveling to Miami. For all travelers it is recommended by the CDC that you wear long sleeves and pants and use bug spray containing DEET to prevent mosquito bites. We strongly encourage attendees to pack these items.
The only ACUA event scheduled outdoors is our Wednesday night event at Nikki Beach. Nikki Beach has their property sprayed once a week and also has repellant available on site.
ACUA management will continue to monitor and report any other advisories in preparation for your travels. Cancellation of Annual Conference registrations will be subject to ACUA’s standard cancellation policy as stated in the registration brochure. Cancellations received prior to August 19th will be refunded minus a $100 processing fee. Please be sure to note if your cancellation is due to a medical condition as the cancellation fee will be waived in those instances. Cancellations received after August 19 will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
