COVID-19 SAFETY

 

What health and safety precautions will be in place at the event?

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 protocols that will be in place on site during the event, please refer to the event Health & Safety Advisory.

   

What do you mean by "fully vaccinated"?

Under our standard protocols, all attendees at Aspen Institute in-person events are required to show they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, or, if they are exempt from this requirement (see exemptions on this page), take a COVID-19 rapid test and show a negative result before entry. This test will be provided and paid for by the Aspen Institute. Fully vaccinated means an individual has received a vaccine that is authorized by the FDA for use in the United States, OR if the individual is outside the U.S., has received a vaccine that has been approved by the World Health Organization, AND the individual is at least 2 weeks past the final shot required of this vaccine.

   

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 While there is not a virtual event this year, Plenaries will be live streamed on Splash. You can find the information on each plenary and more details on how to join on the AGLN Website. The AGLN community is exploring other virtual and in-person offerings in the year ahead.

   

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

We know there are a lot of uncertainties when considering traveling and participating in an in person event. Please reach out to Olivia O'Neil at olivia.oneil@aspeninstitute.org with additional questions and concerns.
