Health and Safety Protocols for Live MSL Society Trainings & Events
[Updated on April 19, 2022]
If you are attending an in-person training, the annual conference, or other events with the MSL Society, we recommend you keep updated with the latest health and safety protocols on this page.
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 fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Kindly note that proof of vaccination will be required for all attendees for in-person training programs, to attend the annual conference, or any other 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 while traveling to/from the conference and/or training programs. 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).
Safety Measures On-Site
Official health and safety guidelines on preventing transmission of COVID-19 are continually evolving. The MSL Society will base on-site protocols according to the latest guidelines and recommendations from the CDC and other appropriate local regulations.
Before arrival, participants will receive specific requirements and guidelines for that particular training/event. Although some events/training may not require a facemask, all participants are welcome to wear one regardless. The MSL Society will be providing disposable masks and hand sanitizers on-site.
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.
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.
