The safety of our patrons and our staff is our number one priority. As such, proof of full COVID-19 vaccination or negative COVID-19 test result will be required of speakers and event attendees. We are also following all federal, state and local guidelines for in-person gatherings as well as recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). To ensure the safety of all in attendance, we will implement the following policies for conference attendees, speakers, and staff:
- Attendees, speakers and staff are asked to adhere to the Health Pledge (see below) while attending the Summit.
- Proof of up-to-date COVID-19 vaccination (double vaccination in the last 5-months, or double vaccination + booster if it’s been longer than 5-months since 2nd shot) or a negative COVID-19 test from a health care facility within 48-hours of the event must be shown at check-in.
- All attendees, speakers, and staff must wear N-95, KF-94 or KN-95 face masks.
- All attendees must be masked (fully covered nose and mouth) whenever indoors and during conference sessions (whether indoors or outdoors). Speakers may choose to remove their masks only while presenting.
- Masks are encouraged when networking outdoors.
- Hand sanitizer will be available throughout the Summit; liberal use is encouraged!
Recognizing that the Covid-19 landscape is changing rapidly, these precautions are subject to change. Registered attendees will be notified of changes by email. Trust for Public Land will continue to monitor CDC, State, and local health recommendations.
