Health/Safety Guidelines

Effective November 29, 2022, NABE will no longer require proof of vaccination status to attend a NABE in-person meeting or event. Mask-wearing at NABE meetings and events is optional.

Instead, NABE expects attendees to take responsibility themselves for following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) on measures to reduce infection from COVID-19 and to protect against severe complications. NABE encourages all attendees to follow the CDC’s recommendation that everyone over age five receive the updated 2023-2024 vaccine as soon as they are eligible to do so (e.g., 2 months past their last shot). For more information, please review the guidelines here

All attendees are asked to take an at-home COVID-19 rapid antigen test before traveling to any NABE meeting and should not attend if they test positive or have symptoms of COVID-19. NABE will also have COVID tests available onsite. NABE will not be requiring proof of these measures, but calls on the NABE community to act responsibly and with consideration for the health and safety of others.
