Health & Safety Information for Baltimore
We can’t wait for you to join us next month in Baltimore for the In-Person Experience of the 2022 NGLA Annual Conference!
Together, we must be able to prioritize the health and safety of our attendees, volunteers, and greater Baltimore community. We can all create an enjoyable experience centered on education and community building by following our health & safety guidelines and Code of Conduct. This means completing verification before attending, wearing a well-fit mask throughout the event, and practicing proper personal hygiene.
As a reminder, there are three verification options to join us in Baltimore: full vaccination against COVID-19, a negative rapid antigen or PCR COVID-19 test administered by a third-party within 72 hours of arrival at the conference, or proof of a positive COVID-19 test result administered by a third-party no more than 90 days prior and no later than 14 days prior to arrival at the conference. We also encourage the vaccine booster, ideally two weeks prior to the conference, to further improve your immunity.
Our team will continue to evaluate our policies regularly to ensure compliance with public health mandates and recommendations. We appreciate your patience and understanding while we work on the details to deliver the NGLA experience that you know and love. Check your inbox early February for more information.
Thank you for your understanding, cooperation, and continued support of NGLA’s mission. We look forward to seeing you soon!
Michael Davis
Executive Director
