COVID Safety

Health and Safety:

Out of an abundance of caution and with the direction of the updated CDC guidelines, OBAP suggests vaccination against COVID-19 as the most effective preventative measure against severe COVID-related illness. In the event that individuals are not vaccinated, we will now allow a lab-produced negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of check-in. Home or self-tests will not be accepted. This policy applies to attendees, presenters, exhibitors, sponsors, and guests. The new, complete policy is listed below:
 
An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is a highly contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable. Although the OBAP has instituted reasonable practices to lessen or reduce the spread of COVID-19, OBAP cannot guarantee that you will never get exposed to the virus or get sick from it. By attending the 2022 ReYOUnion Annual Conference, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
 
The safety and well-being of our members, attendees, exhibitors, and sponsors is always our number one priority. Vaccination against COVID-19 OR a negative, lab-produced PCR test taken within 72 hours of arrival is required and will be verified at check-in. Home tests are not acceptable. Face masks are suggested indoors. Hand sanitizer will be available throughout the event and masks are available upon request at the registration desk. Attendees unable to produce proof of vaccination or a negative PCR test during check-in will not be granted event access and may forfeit registration fees.
