Update to Today’s Earlier Notice on the Dissemination of Routine Messages

As an update and change to our notice earlier today regarding the dissemination of routine messages involving demonstrations, strikes and weather-related events, please note that, due in part to comments from the public, the Embassy will continue to send out email notifications for these types of events in addition to posting them on our website. For any emergency situation that is non-routine the Embassy will share the information as quickly as possible through email.  We appreciate your feedback and hope you continue to find these notices helpful and informative.  __________________________________________________________
