Like all of you, the American Orthotic and Prosthetic Association (AOPA) leadership is closely following the coronavirus disease (COVID-19). As you have likely heard, we have made the tough decision to cancel several of our upcoming events in light of it.
We know that these are difficult and uncertain times for you and your patients. Please know, the Board and staff are here to support you so that you can continue to provide quality care to your patients.
As the situation evolves daily, we encourage you to follow the guidance being issued from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization, and your local, state, and the federal governments. Specifically, the CDC has this webpage with resources and guidance for healthcare facilities. AOPA will continue to monitor the situation and provide guidance as appropriate.
Thank you for all you do for your patients and the O&P profession. As always do not hesitate to contact any of the AOPA staff with questions, concerns, or needs.
Stay safe and well.
