COVID Guidelines

We will follow CDPHE and Eagle County guidance for the conference.  As of June 14, 2022, there are no state or county mask mandates or other public health orders that affect our conference.  Due to the increased rates of COVID-19 in Colorado and elsewhere within the US, the fact that many vaccinated individuals have reported infections with the currently circulating strain(s), and the fact that we don't want our Infectious Disease Conference to be a super-spreader event, we are requesting that all attendees wear masks during the conference when thev are not eating or drinking.  We are requesting that you wear a mask regardless of your vaccine status.

We also ask if you are experiencing any symptoms consistent with a SARS-CoV-2 infection (such as fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, URI symptoms, myalgias, loss of taste or smell, gastrointestinal symptoms, headache), please be sure to stay in your room away from others and attend the conference virtually.
