COVID Safety Protocols (Updated 6/1/2022)
Q. What are the COVID safety protocols for the meeting?

However, we strongly encourage all participants to be vaccinated before attending the Palm Springs Annual Meeting. In addition, although masks will be optional for attendees, we also strongly encourage all participants to wear masks.
We will continue to monitor local conditions and will update these protocols if conditions worsen or local ordinances/policies are reinstated. Please note that by attending this in-person meeting you acknowledge and understand that you are knowingly and freely assuming all risks related to illness and infectious diseases, including, but not limited to, COVID-19.
