Covid Exposure and Conference Mask Policy:
GWPC asks that Annual Forum attendees follow CDC guidelines should they test positive for Covid:
"Everyone who has presumed or confirmed COVID-19 should stay home and isolate from other people for at least 5 full days (day 0 is the first day of symptoms or the date of the day of the positive viral test for asymptomatic persons). They should wear a mask in public for an additional 5 days. People who are confirmed to have COVID-19 or are showing symptoms of COVID-19 need to isolate regardless of their vaccination status."
We are offering both virtual and in person attendance options. At any time an attendee can choose to attend virtually should they feel more comfortable by simply utilizing the conference Whova app to watch the sessions. GWPC is allowing attendees personal choice on whether they wear masks. Masks are welcome but optional.
