COVID-19 Announcement

IMPORTANT UPDATE:  San Diego Festival of Science and Engineering STEM Week EVENTS CANCELLED

March 10, 2020

The situation with the coronavirus (COVID-19) is rapidly evolving. Local, national and global public health recommendations are shifting to include mitigation of transmission, including cancellation of large, public events. Because of public health concerns, some of the remaining signature events of STEM Week will be cancelled. 

This wasn’t an easy decision. STEM Week plays a critical role in educating the community on the importance of STEM education in San Diego county. We know that supporting this event is as important to you as it is to us, so we want to simply thank you for your support during this unusual time, and to share our decision with you. 

Please refer to our website to view the cancellation of our signature events, and to see which partner events have also cancelled their programming. 

In the meantime, we hope you will continue to take precautions as directed by the Center for Disease Control.

CDC COVID-19 Prevention and Treatment Recommendations

The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. However, as a reminder, CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

  • Stay home when you are sick.

  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.

    • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if your hands are visibly dirty.
