COVID-19 Vaccination and Testing Policy
Episcopal Communicators is committed to making EpisComm23 as safe as possible for those joining us in person at Camp Allen, April 25 - 27. As such, the board of directors and the conference planning committee have decided that both full vaccination and a negative COVID test will be required for in-person attendance at EpisComm23.
Episcopal Communicators COVID-19 Protocols (subject to change) are as follows:
Vaccination: All in-person attendees at EpisComm23 will be required to be fully vaccinated and boosted with an FDA-approved COVID-19 vaccine. Fully vaccinated is defined as a complete two-dose regimen of vaccine (or single-dose J&J) and two booster shots, if eligible, taken at least fourteen (14) days before the event's start. As you make plans to attend EpisComm23, please ensure that you are fully vaccinated.
COVID Testing: Anyone presenting, working, or attending the conference will be required to present a negative PCR or antigen test taken within seventy-two (72) hours prior to entrance into the conference. Those who have not tested in a clinical setting will be required to obtain at their own expense a self-administered rapid antigen test and present a negative test result prior to entry into the conference. Those who cannot provide a negative test result will not be permitted to attend the conference in person.
Please note that the conference registration fee will not be refundable for those who have not tested prior to conference arrival and test positive using a self-administered rapid antigen test.
Masks: We will make a decision about masking as we get closer to the conference.
Local Regulations and Hotel Guidelines: Anyone at EpisComm23 will be required to follow any local regulations and Camp Allen guidelines regarding COVID-19.
During onsite registration, all attendees will need to provide documentation showing proof of vaccination status and a negative COVID test (or proof of recovery of COVID-19). Accepted documents include the CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card, another proof of vaccination issued by your vaccine provider, or digital copies or photos of the same, as well as documented proof of a negative COVID test or recovery from COVID-19.
We appreciate everyone’s assistance in keeping EpisComm23 as safe as possible.
