2020 LEVA EVENTS AND COVID-19: The Latest

When planning any LEVA training event, the health and safety of our students and staff is of upmost importance.  We too are monitoring updates by medical and scientific experts to help us make decisions on how to plan for the months ahead.

In an attempt to get classes back on the calendar, LEVA is cautiously rescheduling classes that were cancelled due to the COVID-19 crisis.  Students who registered for the original classes have been notified of the new dates and advised that a final determination to hold respective courses will be made one month before day-one of the class.

We urge everyone to refer to the guidelines and protocols suggested by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) or their local/national public health authorities regarding the virus. CDC information is available at:  https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/

Be aware that travel advice and entry guidelines vary from state to state and country to country. We encourage all to check the latest travel advice and entry guidelines before making arrangements to attend a LEVA class.

If you have any specific event questions, please e-mail LEVA Executive Director, Mr. Jan Garvin, training@leva.org.
