NACAS Inaugurates Matthew Portner, CASP as President and Installs 2022 Board of Directors
Health & Safety Protocols
With ongoing concerns regarding coronavirus and the global pandemic, NACAS continues to move forward with our commitment to the wellness of our community. While we have a limited number of in-person events planned for 2022, we will be taking additional precautions for every event to provide a safe meeting environment to the best of our ability.
What NACAS is Doing
We will do our part to provide and maintain events that are free of known hazards and safeguard the health of NACAS staff, hotel staff, our audience, and their respective families and local communities.
We are closely monitoring the pandemic and recommendations of the CDC. It is in NACAS’ sole discretion to add or remove any event safety measures deemed necessary as we get closer to any event.
Attendees can expect some safety measures to be in place while on-site for our events. These include:
- A wellness screening area prior to checking in at registration
- Hand sanitizer stations throughout the venue
- Seating arrangements that encourage comfortable distancing
- Monitoring counts of attendees for indoor rooms
- More resources may be determined as NACAS assesses on-site operations and as local and federal guidelines shift
What We Ask of You
If you are fully vaccinated, you will be required to show proof of vaccination status upon arrival at events. NACAS will not store this information.
Fully vaccinated is defined as:
- Two mRNA doses + booster (if 2nd mRNA dose was received more than 6 months ago) or
- J&J vaccine + booster (if J&J shot was received more than 2 months ago)
For those not fully vaccinated, we require the following:
- Proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test within 72 hours prior to your arrival date
- Rapid tests will not be accepted in lieu of a PCR test
NACAS also believes in the personal responsibility of community members to create a safe and inclusive experience. The CDC recommends wearing a mask indoors (for both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals), especially in areas of substantial or high transmission. NACAS acknowledges that local requirements for mask wearing vary by locality. Attendees are asked to follow those requirements.
Protocols are subject to change throughout the year as federal and local guidelines change, and as new information regarding COVID-19 becomes available.
