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 Aspen Institute COVID-19 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. If you choose not to share your vaccination status, you will be required to take a COVID-19 rapid test and show a negative result to enter the event. 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. We are closely monitoring the latest from the CDC in view of anticipated booster shots in the coming months, and will update our protocols as needed to keep aligned with its recommendations.

   

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

As part of the ReturnSafe questionnaire, all attendees will be asked to affirm they will not attend if they are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 on the day of the event (minors’ parent/legal guardian will affirm on their behalf). If, while attending our event, an individual begins experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, we ask that that individual departs, or we may need to ask that that individual leaves if we think it might put others at risk. If that individual is a minor, the minor’s parent/legal guardian will be responsible for coordinating the departure.

   

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. We also will make any necessary reports to public health authorities and may ask for additional information for contact tracing purposes while managing individuals’ identity with respect for privacy. Where available, we also will give those individuals the opportunity to view or participate in the event online.

   

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.
