Health & Safety

LeadingAge Annual Meeting + EXPO is committed to keeping all attendees safe during the event. As a member of the LeadingAge community, we each play an important role to keep each other as protected as possible. We ask all attendees to agree to the following:

  • I understand LeadingAge requires a negative COVID-19 test (PCR or antigen/rapid tests, including self tests are acceptable), administered no more than 48 hours prior to arrival regardless of vaccination status, and that I will be electronically asked to attest onsite that I received a negative result before printing my badge (no documentation required).
  • I will follow LeadingAge safety guidelines.
  • I will stay at home or in my hotel room if I am feeling sick.
  • I am aware how each person chooses to navigate the safety practices associated with COVID-19 varies from person to person such as comfort with social distancing. I respect each person's individual choice. 

Thank you for doing your part in helping keep the LeadingAge Annual Meeting + EXPO a safe and comfortable experience for everyone.
