  • Masks are welcome, but not required. 

  • You will be asked for proof of COVID-19 vaccination at the check-in desk. If you are not able to provide proof of vaccination, you will not be permitted to enter the venue. If you would like to plan ahead, feel free to email a photo of your CDC COVID-19 Vaccination card to mollyb@vbsr.org with your name and the subject "Proof of Vaccination for Conference." Acceptable forms of proof include:

  • Not everyone with COVID-19 has a fever. Even mild symptoms (like a headache or dry cough) could be signs of COVID-19. Symptoms may start 2 to 14 days after exposure to the virus. People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness.

  • Although it is not required, we encourage you to test negative on a COVID-19 test before attending this event. The CDC recommends that you test as close to the event as possible. Learn more about COVID-19 testing here.
