+1 definitely the right move.

An RSA attendee has tested positive. 35,000 people from our world go to
RSA. Unless we were lucky, it is already in our industry. Limiting the rate
of spread may not to change who gets it in the end much (unless we develop
a working vaccine) but it will affect the care that will be available.
