Health & Safety Information

ABA In-Person Meeting Policy (as of 3/14/2024)

The ABA takes the health and safety of our members, guests, and staff seriously. We know that the decision whether to attend a meeting is based upon a variety of personal and business considerations. We will continue to monitor a variety of sources, including the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and U.S. state and local health authorities for the latest public health updates, as well as applicable restrictions on events and gatherings. The ABA plans to hold this meeting in person but reserves the right to cancel or reschedule this event or convert it to a virtual event if health and safety restrictions require it. We will update the registrants and the website should the plans for this event change.

As part of the registration process to hold this ABA meeting in person, every attendee is required to affirm their commitment to comply with the in-person meeting guidelines. Please review the requirements carefully prior to registering for the meeting. You will be asked to accept the following affirmations during the registration process:

  • If I register for an in-person meeting, I affirm that I will stay home and away from others if I have respiratory virus symptoms that are not better explained by another cause during the course of the meeting. These symptoms can include fever, chills, fatigue, cough, runny nose, headache, and muscle or body aches, among others. I affirm that I will return to the meeting only when, for at least twenty-four (24) hours, (1) my symptoms are improving overall, and (2) if a fever was present, it has been gone without use of fever-reducing medication. Once I return to meeting activities, I will take additional prevention precautions for the next five (5) days to curb disease spread, such as taking more steps for cleaner air, enhancing hygiene practices, wearing a well-fitting mask, keeping a distance from others, and/or getting tested for respiratory viruses.

  • The requirements in this affirmation also apply to any guest(s) or minor(s) attending the meeting with me.
