From the International Federation of Library Associations (IFLA):

IFLA is very confident that we will have an outstanding vibrant WLIC in Dublin. Nevertheless IFLA is monitoring the situation with the COVID-19 (coronavirus) and the recommendations regarding events and travel provided by the World Health Organisation (WHO).

For the IFLA Congress 2020 in Dublin, we will rely on information provided by WHO, Health Security Reports issued by the European Commission and information from the Department of Health of the Irish Government.

At this stage, IFLA is of course continuing with preparations for the conference and will communicate on any changes that may arise.
