NAFA is committed to providing a healthy, safe, productive and welcoming environment for all and will be following the current guidelines recommended by the CDC. If you are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 you should follow the CDC’s Interim Public Health Recommendations for Fully Vaccinated People. People who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19, should use prevention strategies, such as wearing masks, physical distancing, hand hygiene, and respiratory etiquette. Our decisions and preventive measures are guided by the requirements and recommendations by both the CDC and local health authorities in which NAFA will closely monitor changing conditions and decide if protocols will change. The responsibility for a safe and healthy event environment is shared among NAFA staff, venue, and every participant. As part of your duty of care responsibilities, you should NOT attend the Annual Convention if you:
- are experiencing, or within the 10 days prior have experienced signs and symptoms of COVID-19;
- believe that you may have been exposed to a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19; and/or
- have been diagnosed with COVID-19 and are not yet cleared as non-contagious by the health care team responsible for your treatment.
