Health & Safety

NEWEA’s main priority is the health and safety of our attendees, exhibitors, volunteers, and staff. NEWEA will adhere to all official government and local authority guidance, as well as any venue or location-specific regulations.  We will continue to monitor the evolving situation related to COVID-19 and all other epidemics, pandemics, and other public health situations and will update our strategy and guidelines below as needed.

As of September 26, 2022, the following guidelines should be followed at all NEWEA conferences and events:

  1. All conference/event participants must sign the Attendee Terms and Conditions during registration.
  2. Masks are optional. NEWEA will continue to monitor COVID-19 Community Levels to determine appropriate masking guidelines. NEWEA will also adhere to any masking mandates that are put in place by the venue and/or local, state, and/or federal government.
  3. NEWEA recommends staying up-to-date with vaccinations and following CDC guidelines for minimizing the spread of illness.
  4. Individuals who test positive for COVID-19 within 10 days of a conference/event and/or who are experiencing any cold/flu-like symptoms including but not limited to cough, fever, and/or sore throat should not attend.

Despite the protocols above, there is still an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any public place where people are present.  Should you fail to observe any of these protocols, NEWEA may remove you from the Event without refund. By voluntarily choosing to attend NEWEA’s conferences and events, participants assume all risks associated with exposure to COVID-19.

NEWEA will continue to update these guidelines as needed. Please contact the NEWEA Office with any questions.
