WEST CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa.—ASTM International is canceling all in-person meetings through February.
The standards group previously had canceled face-to-face sessions through the end of the year, but is now extending that decision for two additional months.
The moves, ASTM said, are based on recommendations from entities including the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization. ASTM members also played a part in making the decision as well as consideration of projected restrictions in Louisville, Ky., where the group's January Committee Week activities were slated.
"Although all fall in-person standards development meetings (including independent meetings) were previously canceled through the end of the year, the important work of our committees will continue virtually over the next few months," ASTM said in a statement.
The status of various committee meetings is available at www.astm.org/meetings.
