Face Mask

Face Masks

While attending all indoor conference sessions, you will need to wear your face covering. This is in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) mask guidance released on July 27, 2021, in areas of substantial or high COVID-19 transmission, guests are encouraged to wear face coverings in all indoor areas, regardless of vaccination status. We will continue to monitor policies and implement based on the recommended guidelines released in March 2022.

Up-to-date Travel Advisories

Our number one priority is your health, safety and well-being. We will continue to closely monitor developments around the world and with global organizations including the World Health Organization (WHO), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and relevant authorities for California-specific requirements, to ensure the actions we take are inclusive and suitable. We will continue to evaluate our protocols to keep everyone safe and in line with CDC recommendations.

Travel Safety for Professional Events

TSA recently extended the mask mandate on all forms of transportation through January 2022. The universal wearing of masks in airports, airplanes, trains, and other forms of public transportation is both an effective safeguard against spreading the virus and boosts public confidence in traveling – both of which are paramount for a sustained economic recovery.

A Harvard study finds that through a layered approach to risk mitigation, the scientific evidence shows a low risk of COVID-19 transmission on aircraft.

According to the research, Airplanes maintain clean air by circulating air through HEPA filters, the same type of air filters used in hospital operating rooms.
