The health and safety of participants and event staff is our highest priority and we will be monitoring the evolving situation with the COVID-19 pandemic leading up to and during the event. For more information about our standard event protocols, please refer to the Aspen Institute's Health & Safety Advisory.

  

What if I am experiencing symptoms on the day of the event?

Please check-in with yourself before coming to sessions each day. If you are experiencing any symptoms, we ask that you do not attend sessions. There are several testing centers in Aspen if you would like to seek out a test. View more about testing options here.

 

What if I test positive before the event or at entry?

If you test positive for COVID-19, you will not be allowed to attend or enter the event in-person or may be asked to leave if the event is in progress. While we cannot diagnose or treat attendees for COVID-19 or any other disease, or offer medical advice, we will encourage anyone who tests positive to contact a qualified doctor or medical provider for more information, as well as review guidance from the CDC and public health officials. If you are unable to attend the event due to a positive COVID-19 test, please reach out to Olivia O’Neil to discuss the refund options at olivia.oneil@aspeninstitute.org

   

Who can I reach out to with additional questions related to COVID-19?
