COVID-19 Health and Safety Guidelines

As always, ADvancing States is taking safety at our event seriously. We have implemented the following measures to promote the health and wellbeing of attendees and staff.

All attendees are expected to consider the well-being of themselves and those around them. This includes:

  • Self-monitoring for COVID-19 and other illness symptoms
  • Being vaccinated and submitting to follow-up boosters as needed
  • Respecting the personal space and decisions of other attendees 

While we will not require masks or proof of vaccination, we do expect all attendees to make a personal commitment to ensuring they are not putting themselves or others in danger of illness. We are a community and will rely on our community members to ensure the safety of the group. 

ADvancing States is committed to building an environment of wellness and will be providing:

  • Complimentary facemasks
  • Free COVID tests available to all participants
  • Hand sanitizer stations

We thank you for your patience and flexibility as we manage this and ask that you check back here for updates.
