  • In accordance with IL State Executive Order 21-22, all attendees (which includes, speakers, exhibitors, guests, and staff) must wear a mask when indoors.
  • All attendees must answer an online health-screening assestation 24 hours prior to the event.
  • It is highly ENCOURAGED that all attendees either be vaccinated against COVID-19 OR have a negative COVID-19 test no more than 72 hours prior to attending. 
  • Please follow social distancing protocols.
  • All food and beverages served will be individually packaged when possible. 
    • When eating, please practice social distancing.
    • Additional protocols may be added due to location site policies.

While vaccinations, observance of safety protocols, and exercise of personal discipline may reduce risk, however, an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 does remain in connection with any public gathering.

  •  Individuals who believe that they may have been exposed to a confirmed or suspected case of COVID19 or have been diagnosed with COVID-19 and are not yet cleared as non-contagious by state or local public health authorities or the health care team responsible for their treatment.
