Health and Safety Protocols (Updated as of May 3, 2022)

The CDC indicates that the COVID Community Level in nearly every Virginia locality is Low. As a result, its recommendations are to stay up to date with vaccines and test if you have symptoms. Further, it says people may choose to wear a mask anytime. 

Given that providers are covered under the CMS vaccine mandate and most of our associate members are also vaccinated, VHCA-VCAL’s updated safety protocols are*:

  1. We will not require proof of vaccination or otherwise ask about vaccine status.
  2. Masks will be encouraged but not required. We ask that anyone not vaccinated please wear a mask.
  3. Meetings held on-site at a long term care facility must follow the host facility’s protocols.

*Subject to change.

Our goal is always to keep our event attendees healthy and safe. As a precautionary measure, VHCA-VCAL asks attendees who are sick and/or have active symptoms of fever, cough, or shortness of breath to please refrain from attending our events for the benefit of all concerned. Attendees who must refrain from participating in an event due to exposure/illness for which registration has already been paid may contact Doran Hutchinson to discuss cancellation options.
