AACI continues to closely monitor the coronavirus outbreak. To facilitate communication around this rapidly-evolving topic, AACI will share news, guidelines, and cancer center policies to keep our members informed on COVID-19 as it relates to cancer research and treatment.
On March 16, AACI launched a Slack workspace as a forum for AACI cancer center members and National Cancer Institute leaders to share challenges and best practices related to COVID-19 and cancer. To ensure confidentiality and encourage open discussion, all requests to join the forum require administrative approval from AACI.

The World Health Organization (WHO) officially declared the coronavirus outbreak a global pandemic on Wednesday, March 11; two days later, President Donald Trump proclaimed a national emergency in the United States. AACI members have been taking measures to limit exposure to the coronavirus in order to protect cancer patients, their families, and the community at large from infection with COVID-19.
The following AACI Commentary provides an overview of members’ current COVID-19 activities, although it may not fully reflect the efforts of AACI’s 100 members. For real-time updates, AACI is launching a platform for members to discuss how they are addressing this evolving public health crisis.
