17 April, 2020
On behalf of the AMS Council and staff, I would like to extend our sincere sympathy to anyone impacted directly or indirectly by the novel coronavirus, and gratitude to the healthcare workers and organizations battling this pandemic. For those members of the community required to be at their places of business for public safety, thank you and stay safe. As we all practice social distancing in an effort to reduce the transmission of COVID-19 and its potential strain on our healthcare systems, we’ve created a list of helpful AMS resources that you can access online.
Please contact us the same ways as always. In most cases, email is the best way to reach us. If you are trying to reach a staff member by phone and reach voicemail, leave a message! It will be delivered to us via email, and we will respond when we are able.
A new AMS statement, Tornado Sheltering Guidelines during the COVID-19 Pandemic, is now in force. English and Spanish PDFs are available.
As of 17 April, we have made the decision to reschedule the following upcoming meetings:
