Epic cancels its Experts Group Meeting (XGM) 2020, which was expected to draw 9,000 attendees to Epic’s Verona, WI campus April 27 – May 8.

Epic is further responding to COVID-19 by:

  • Allowing employees to cancel or postpone non-essential business travel.
  • Expanding sick leave and work from home policies for employees who are experiencing symptoms or have elevated risk of complications.
  • Conducting large internal meetings virtually.
  • Offering users virtual options for training classes.
  • Serving food from campus cafeterias in individual to-go containers to prevent lines and modifying seating to reduce large gatherings in cafeterias.

Epic said in a statement, “We will miss seeing our guests at XGM this year, and are saddened that this change will impact the businesses in our community that help welcome and host the 9,000 guests who come to XGM. However, we felt that this decision was necessary to help slow the spread of COVID-19.”

  1. The March 13 poll results so far are shocking. What planet are your readers living on if they aren’t really changing their activities? I am currently healthy, but my world has been turned upside down in the last week. I know it’s my responsibility to limit all contact with others if not for me, for everyone else, and that our only hope for functional healthcare system is to slow the rate of infection.

  2. There are always people that think the “No Parking” sign does not apply to them. The same is true of the Coronavirus situation. It is not surprising to me but it is very sad. We all have a responsibility to do whatever it takes to curtail, and ultimately, end this crisis. Our whole economy is at risk. More importantly, lives are st risk.
