Statement on COVID-19 

As we continue to navigate the ongoing pandemic and public health crisis, the health and safety of our community and stakeholders is of paramount concern. While the release of vaccines has marked a significant advance in this public health crisis, safety and health concerns around large gatherings will likely persist through the summer.
The Iowa State University planning team has been working diligently to assess the impact of the ongoing pandemic on the NVSS 2021 and, after careful consideration, has made the decision to present the event virtually this summer.
