Health + Safety

Updated April 19, 2022

This page will be updated regularly with information on our onsite health and safety protocols for this event. Our attendees’ health and safety remain our top priority as we continue to monitor COVID-19 and look to venue, local, state, CDC, and WHO guidelines to make the best and most informed decisions around onsite safety and requirements.


Vaccine Requirement

Vaccine Requirement
In-person attendees will be required to be fully vaccinated
against the COVID-19 virus. Fully vaccinated is defined as two weeks (14 full days) after the final dose of a government-approved vaccine.

Accepted Vaccines
All vaccines approved for emergency or full use by the World Health Organization will be accepted for in-person attendance at this event. These currently include vaccines listed here. This list will be updated as new vaccines are accepted.

Vaccine Verification
Participants will need to show proof of vaccination and a government-issued photo id to enter the event. The following are acceptable forms of proof of full vaccination: 

Approved Forms of COVID Vaccination:

  • Government-issued or government-compliant digital vaccination verification app (such as Clear or VaxYes)
  • Physical (or digital photocopy of) COVID-19 vaccination card, record, or certificate issued by a government agency, public health agency or other authorized vaccine provider (a photo will also suffice).

If proof of vaccination does not include a QR code, then the record must show the name of the vaccinated individual along with one other personal identifier (such as date of birth or passport number), name of the manufacturer for vaccine received, and date(s) of vaccination. It must also include the name of the official source issuing the record (e.g., public health agency, government agency, or other authorized vaccine provider).


Masks are no longer required but are recommended, both to keep yourself and others as safe as possible. Anyone who would feel more comfortable wearing one is encouraged to do so. Please be respectful of those who choose to wear a mask.

The only exception to this is if you’ve been in close contact (as defined by the CDC) with someone who recently tested positive for COVID-19. If this applies to you, you’ll need to test negative prior to attending the event (5 days after close contact) and wear a mask indoors at the event until you have tested negative 10 days after exposure.


The following protocols will be in place at the event. Additions will be made as deemed necessary for participant safety.

  • Vaccine requirement
  • Sanitizing speaker microphones between each speaker’s use
  • Plentiful sanitation stations onsite with alcohol-based hand sanitizer, wipes, and tissue
  • Personal hand sanitizer bottles and wipes will be available for those participants that would like them

At a minimum, we will be following all mandated venue, municipality, and CDC guidelines. This list, and all protocols, are subject to change as the fluid COVID-19 situation changes. 


Do not enter the event if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Fever
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Persistent cough
  • Sinus congestion or running nose
  • Loss of taste or smell
  • Headaches or sore throat
  • Severe muscle aches
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or loss of appetite

If you experience any of these symptoms, contact Tricia Barker , Event Manager, (940-231-0966, for a COVID-19 test to be delivered to your room.

Should you end up testing positive:

  • Follow the CDC guidelines on what to do if you get sick
  • Please follow the guidance of the testing facility, urgent care, or hospital that you visited in order to best protect yourself, as well as the community. The facility at which you test positive will notify the Department of Health if deemed necessary by local guidelines for contact tracing purposes.
  • You will not be able to return to the event.
  • Email Angela Brown, GM of Events, at, to let us know. While we will need to let event participants know that someone onsite tested positive for COVID-19, we will not disclose your name. We will ask attendees to monitor their own symptoms and follow CDC recommendations on what to do if they may have been around a person who had COVID-19
