COVID & Masking Policy

Given the current climate, all attendees will be required to wear a mask at all times while attending the conference. Following the guidelines established by the California Department of Public Health, persons with a medical condition, mental health condition, or disability that prevents wearing a face covering will be excluded from this mandatory masking policy. This includes persons with a medical condition for whom wearing a face covering could obstruct breathing or who are unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove a face covering without assistance. When removing masks to eat, we ask attendees to maintain a safe distance from others.
