If we deem it safe to move forward with an in-person event depending on state and federal public health guidelines, as well asinternal policies, we expect staff and attendees to adhere to the following safety protocols.
Individuals (including staff, event hosts, and attendees) should not attend an in-person event if they—or anyone in their household—are displaying any of the following symptoms:
Fever (100.4F or higher)
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Repeated shaking with chills
New loss of taste or smell
If an event registrant is displaying any of the above symptoms, refunds will be issued without penalty (if applicable).
Pasa staff will contact event hosts the night before and the morning of a scheduled event to check if anyone at the event site is displaying symptoms associated with COVID-19. If any symptoms are present, the event will be immediately canceled. Pasa staff will contact event registrants to notify them about any event cancellations.
We expect staff and attendees to plan to minimize risk of being exposed to the coronavirus while traveling:
Will you need to make stops along the way? If so, do you have proper personal protective equipment? (e.g. If you need to stop for gas, do you have disposable gloves or hand sanitizer to use after handling the gas pump?)
At this time, Pasa staff members are not permitted to carpool with anyone to or from events (unless they are from the same household).
To minimize risk at the meeting or event:
Pasa staff, event hosts, and attendees are required to wear a mask at all times, except for individuals who cannot wear a mask due to a medical condition.
Pasa staff will enforce gathering size restrictions.
Accommodations will be made to minimize or eliminate “high touch” interactions (e.g. signing in, paying registration fees, handing out materials, opening or closing doors, etc.)
Social distancing of at least 6 feet must be maintained throughout the event. Pasa staff will monitor social distancing and issue reminders as necessary. (Social distancing does not apply to members of the same household who traveled to an event together.)
Any food served at an event will be pre-packaged. Otherwise, attendees will be asked to bring their own food, or food will not be served.
Soap and water, clean paper towels or a hand dryer, hand sanitizers (at least 60% alcohol), and/or disinfectant wipes will be available for all event participants.
Any shared items will be sanitized as needed.
While we strive to make events family-friendly, capacities and 6-foot distancing must be strictly enforced. Therefore, until further notice, we ask that non-registered children and youth not be brought to events.
