It was late February, just three months ago, that we were preparing for the DON IT Conference in San Diego. At the time there were some COVID-19 cases in a nursing home in the state of Washington and there were rumors of an isolated case near San Diego. At the conference, hand sanitizer stations were in place, so we hand sanitized a little more than usual, and some tried to minimize handshakes, but for the most part it was business as usual. However, while we were there, a follow-on West Coast business trip was cancelled, and we started hearing about cancellations of upcoming conferences in San Diego.
