Health and Safety Protocols for Live MSL Society Trainings & Events
[Updated on September, 7 2021]
The safety of our attendees is our top priority, and one of the most effective ways to ensure everyone’s safety is for them to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Kindly note that proof of vaccination will be required for all attendees for in-person training or events.
Though the MSL Society will take every precaution to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, all participants should be aware that they can still come in contact with people who carry the virus in transport to/from the event/training hotels common areas for convention centers, etc. For this reason, the MSL Society requires attendees to be fully vaccinated to ensure the safety of everyone.
Everyone from the MSL Society who will be working at the training or event will be fully vaccinated. We can not legally require other local staff to be vaccinated; however, we will work closely with all applicable entities to ensure on-site protocols follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines.
Before participants arrive on-site, they will be asked to provide proof of complete vaccination against COVID-19 with a vaccine approved by the World Health Organization (WHO) or the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The MSL Society will collaborate with an official third party to help ensure all vaccinations are verified.
Safety Measures On-Site
Official health and safety guidelines on preventing transmission of COVID-19 are constantly evolving. The MSL Society will base on-site protocols according to the latest guidelines from the CDC and potential local regulations.
Before arrival, participants will receive specific requirements and guidelines for that particular training/event. Though some events/training might not require a facemask or other protective equipment, it’s welcomed regardless. The MSL Society will be providing disposable masks and hand sanitizers.
The MSL Society will ensure training/event setup allow social distancing. Even if official guidelines don’t require social distancing at a given time, we are aware some might feel more comfortable keeping the social distancing.
Several studies now point to the unlikeliness of contagion through surfaces touched by multiple people; however, staff will clean surfaces regularly to ensure a healthy and sanitary environment.
For everyone’s safety, the MSL Society will have on-site rapid testing stations. These will be available for participants who might experience symptoms and for international travelers who are required to show a negative COVID-19 test to be able to travel back home after the event/training.
If you are arriving from outside the country, you need to check the current travel restrictions on arriving in the U.S. on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website. Ensure you check the latest requirements before you plan your travel as these continuously change.
