Welcome to our site! 

UPDATE ON THE CORONAVIRUS AND BBS as of 30 July 2020:

With numbers spiking all over the United States since Memorial Day, the European Union (E.U.) determined that the USA has "too many cases" of Covid-19, and further determined that Americans pose a viral threat to Europe.  Many European countries have drastically reduced the number of Covid cases per day, and on March 17, 2020, the E.U. closed its external borders to the citizens of the United States and restricted all nonessential travel in response to the Coronavirus outbreak. On June 11, the E.U. gradually began lifting its restrictions, and on July 1, it allowed international arrivals from some countries including Canada, Japan and New Zealand — but not the United States. 

 

What is meant by “too many” cases? According to the E.U., the number of cases must be close to or below the E.U. average as of June 15, 2020.  The European average was about 15 cases per 100,000 people over a two-week period, and the United States' average was about 145 cases per 100,000 people over the same period. However, the USA numbers have exponentially increased with the spiking of Covid cases in more than 30 states since the Memorial Day and July 4th holidays, and our country now has on average 1,147.5 cases per day. 

 

 

BBS will resume when it is safe to travel per CDC guidelines for international travel and when Americans are allowed to fly safely to/from Europe.   We will continue to support and follow science as we plan for future Symposia, and our website will be updated as we make future plans.

 

Keep us posted about what you are doing.  And, stay safe.
