COVID-19 Data, Policy, Airline and Hotel Resources

In an effort to share as much information as possible with our association community, as well as our larger academic and policy community as a whole, we are working on a COVID-19 policy tracking form. If you can contribute to the project, it hopefully will help ISA recoup some losses from our the cancelled ISA2020. We also hope it will help our members and attendees share information on government and institutional travel restrictions (for all those COVID-19 articles you are writing while self-quarantining and social distancing). Check out the project here.

Many businesses are making special accommodations that may assist attendees with recouping previously paid travel expenses. Many airlines have also indicated a willingness to extend deadlines on transfer waivers and credits, upon request, for travel scheduled between March and April 2020. Please be sure to check your reservations and the relevant company’s website(s) as soon as possible regarding travel arrangements, as there may be deadlines associated. (Below are some of the airline updated policies we've located.)

Additionally, all ISA hotels have confirmed that they will honor cancellations in full made prior to 72 hours of the attendee's check-in date. We recommend that you edit/cancel your hotel reservations as soon as possible (ISA doesn't manage group reservations nor have access to the hotel reservation systems, so you must do so directly, if you booked with an ISA hotel). You may be able to process edits/cancellations via the hotel's website and/or honors programs and we've also included their contact information below.

Looking for additional health/policy information on COVID-19?

And a few academic resources:

Also, don't forget, ISA is working to process registration refunds for ISA2020 attendees. If you haven't already, please be sure to submit your cancellation record at https://www.isanet.org/Conferences/Honolulu-2020/Register/Cancellations by March 31st.

Many thanks to the Midwest Political Science Association (MPSA)American Association of Geographers (AAG), Inside Higher Ed (IHE), and The Chronicle of Higher Education (the Chronicle) for their assistance and support - both in gathering data and more generally in consulting on issues of common concern during these unprecedented times. We are thankful to be engaged in an active community of scholars that embraces both research and mutual aid. If you have other resources you'd like to share, please feel free to include them in comments below or send them to us at honolulu@isanet.org.
