Ensuring the Health and Safety of Conference Attendees - WASBO Safeguards updated 9/3/2021
As we prepare for in-person conferences, providing attendees and
exhibitors with a safe and healthy learning environment is our top
priority. To do this well, all participants must follow the safeguards
necessary for minimizing transmission of the COVID-19 virus, including
the emerging Delta variant.Additionally, this will allow a lower risk of
transmitting the virus to your family and community. The safeguards
include the following:
Before the Event:
Get the vaccine. All registrants including guests and speakers will
be required to provide proof of being fully vaccinated. You are
considered fully vaccinated:
- 2 weeks after your second dose in a 2-dose series, such as Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or
- 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson's Janssen vaccine
Prepare to attend by monitoring your fever or symptoms before the conference even if you are fully vaccinated.
Stay home if you have a fever or other symptoms even if you are fully vaccinated.
Stay home if you have a family member with COVID-19 even if you are fully vaccinated and follow CDC recommended precautions.
During the Event:
Present proof of vaccination.
All attendees will be required to wear a mask
inside, with the exception of when actively eating or drinking, even if you are fully vaccinated. WASBO will provide a mask if you do
not have one.
Practice physical distancing as required.
Follow the CDC’s guidance.
Please note that additional
safeguards may be established based on CDC guidelines as the conference
nears. If change is needed, this will be communicated in conference
After the Event:
Monitor your temperature and symptoms to keep yourself and others safe.
