In the context of the exponential growth of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the President of the European Parliament has announced a number of measures to contain the spread of epidemic and to safeguard Parliament's core activities.

On 2 July, the Conference of Presidents updated the EP's calendar of activities: https://www.europarl.europa.eu/sed/doc/news/flash/23441/Calendar%20for%202020%20-%20v14a_en.pdf

The current precautionary measures adopted by the EP to contain the spread of COVID-19 do not affect work on legislative priorities. Core activities are reduced, but maintained to ensure that the institution's legislative, budgetary, scrutiny functions are maintained.

Following these decisions, the next FEMM Committee meeting will take place via multilingual remote participation on Monday, 7 December 2020, from 13.45 - 15.45.
