Event Policies

COVID-19 Precautionary Policies

As the COVID-19 Global Pandemic continues, NADO is  cautiously optimistic and prepared to manage in-person conferences with the health, safety, and well-being of our staff and conference participants as our top priority. NADO is committed to providing a safe, productive, and welcoming environment for all in-person events.

As we plan, we will continue to assess the risks in the host city and the current status in the United States. In keeping with the Association’s duty of care and the responsibility as host, NADO may implement safety requirements such as proof of a COVID-19 vaccination or negative test result, indoor masking, and physical distancing during the conference. We will continue to monitor and update safety precautions regularly and coordinate with trusted national resources, state and local public health agencies, and the host hotel.
