|IPM Breakfast Meeting Cancellation|| |
Due to the threat of the coronavirus that causes COVID-19, University of California employees have been ordered to temporarily cancel all face-to-face educational events, regardless of size. In addition, President Trump has advised against meeting in groups of more than 10 people and avoiding restaurants. Therefore Jhalendra, Kari and I will cancel our March 18 and April 1 Tree & Vine IPM breakfast meetings. We will monitor the situation closely and will make a decision on future meetings as the situation unfolds.
