COVID-19 Protocol

What is the Covid 19 Protocol

Authorized vaccines in the United States are highly effective at protecting vaccinated people against symptomatic and severe COVID-19, according to the California Department of Public Health. VALOR has adopted a policy of mandatory full vaccination for all attendees for the 2023 National Sexual Assault Conference® in order to safeguard the health of our employees, attendees, and the greater community at large.

VALOR will use the Center for Disease Control’s recommendation of “up to date” vaccination status which includes those who have completed their primary vaccination (the 2-dose series of Pfizer-BioNTech/Moderna, the single dose of (Johnson and Johnson [J&J]/Janssen)), and, if eligible, have receied a booster dose no less than two weeks prior to the conference (and no more than six months prior to the conference).

Attendees for whom the vaccine is medically contraindicated for them or medical necessity requires a delay in vaccination, must agree to wear a mask at all conference functions and present a negative COVID test on day one of attendance.

Will attendees be required to wear masks?

All guests and employees of VALOR must adhere to San Francisco, CA masking guidelines, which, currently, recommend wearing a mask in indoor public settings, and strongly recommend masking on public transportation and in indoor public transportation facilities. If that guideline changes, VALOR will update attendees.

In accordance with San Francisco Department of Health recommendations, VALOR also strongly recommends masking at all indoor venues.

Attendees voluntarily assume all risks related to COVID-19 while attending this conference.
