COVID-19 SAFETY PROTOCOLS FOR IN-PERSON PROGRAMS
CHA considers the health and safety of all those onsite at in-person programs our top priority. During these challenging times, CHA is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for all of our in-person programs' participants and staff. CHA has adopted preventative measures to reduce the potential spread of the COVID-19 virus at our in-person programs in accordance with guidance provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and our partnering hotels. CHA staff will monitor, enforce and address as appropriate compliance with our safety protocols and procedures. Nevertheless, attendees must recognize that there is risk involved in attending any in-person gathering, and by registering for the program, agree to accept such risk.

Personal Accountability
By attending any of CHA's in-person programs, you agree to abide by and engage in certain health-and-safety-beneficial conduct while attending the program. All attendees are expected to comply with all applicable requirements imposed by federal, state, or local health authorities for the locality in which the in-person program is taking place, and are expected to adhere to and abide by the safety precautions (below) that CHA has implemented to protect against the spread of COVID-19.

Onsite Safety Precautions

  • Proof of vaccination for all registered attendees/vendors will be required onsite. Once arriving at the program, registrants will be required to present the following two items:
    1. Photo ID
    2. COVID-19 Vaccination card (digital or paper) or a copy of vaccination record (digital or paper)
  • Masks are optional, unless mandated by local authorities or determined prudent based on local conditions.

In Case of Illness
You should not attend a CHA in-person program if you are experiencing, or within 10 days prior to the program have experienced, symptoms associated with the flu or COVID-19. You also should not attend if you have been exposed to a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19 or have been diagnosed with COVID-19 and are not yet cleared as non-contagious by state or local public health authorities or the health care team responsible for your treatment. In addition, attendees should self-monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 and will be asked to leave the program immediately should symptoms develop. Full registration fees paid will be refunded for COVID-19 related cancellations.
