NOVA: Polar Extremes CANCELLED
Fernbank Science Center | 156 Heaton Park Dr Atlanta, GA 30307
Saturday, March 21, 2020 - 3:00pm to 5:00pm

In light of recent developments in the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and GPB’s efforts to ensure the health and well-being of our building guests and employees, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this event as a precautionary measure. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

COVID-19 is rapidly evolving and all Georgians should follow basic prevention measures:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for at least twenty seconds.
  • If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

If you have recently traveled to areas where there are ongoing outbreaks of COVID-19 and you develop fever with cough and shortness of breath within fourteen days of your travel, or if you have had contact with someone who is suspected to have COVID-19, stay home and call your health care provider or local health department right away. Be sure to call before going to a doctor’s office, emergency room, or urgent care center and tell them about your recent travel and symptoms.
