Health and Safety Protocols

(Updated November 18, 2021)

Ensuring the well-being of our attendees, presenters, and staff is of paramount importance and a shared responsibility. VHCA-VCAL requires all attendees follow any federal, state, or local health and safety standards after your registration and up to and through the end of the event.

In our continuing efforts to ensure the health and safety of all present at the Financial Conference, all attendees, and presenters will be required to provide proof they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. (To be considered fully vaccinated, you must be two weeks past your second dose in a two-dose series (Pfizer or Moderna) or two weeks past a single-dose vaccine (J&J/Janssen)).

Fully vaccinated attendees may email proof of vaccination to linda.pretlow@vhca.org prior to the event. Once vaccination status is verified, fully-vaccinated attendees need not show proof at future events. This policy is subject to revision pending changes to federal or state guidelines regarding booster shots.

Please note that per CDC and VDH guidance, even individuals who are fully vaccinated should wear a mask indoors in public in areas of substantial or high transmission. At present, nearly every locality in Virginia meets the definition of “substantial or high transmission.” VHCA-VCAL will monitor this guidance for any changes. 

The association requires attendees to follow the CDC Quarantine and Isolation guidance if you  experience COVID-19 symptoms or have been exposed to COVID-19. All attendees should practice proper hand hygiene throughout their time at the event.
