COVID-19 PREPAREDNESS AND PRECAUTIONS
We are watching federal and state guidelines as we tailor our COVID-19 Preparedness & Precautions guide to what is best for our guests and our venue partner. Currently, masks will be required at 2022 Session Priorities unless a participant is actively eating or drinking.
To help maintain safety at our events, we are implementing a “health attestation” policy for all attendees and staff. This means when a person attends one of our events, they are attesting, to the best of their knowledge, neither they nor any member of their household are experiencing any of the CDC-defined COVID-19 symptoms. Below are the current symptoms to monitor, though the list may change if the CDC announces new symptom guidance.
Fever above 100.4 degrees
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Chills or repeated shaking with chills
New loss of taste or smell
As part of this protocol, our expectation is that all attendees and staff are taking their temperature prior to arriving onsite. Thank you for your flexibility and commitment to keeping yourself and others healthy.
