as of March 1, 2022
SGAA + SAMA are planning to implement all CDC and local guidelines with regards to large gatherings at the time of the Conference in Toledo. As organizations representing a national community, we support the view that “getting the COVID vaccine…is an act of love” and encourage all Vendors/Exhibitors/Teachers/Speakers & Attendees to be vaccinated. We will ask all attendees to provide proof of vaccination or provide a Negative PCR COVID test to attend.
In addition, we will follow all CDC, Ohio state, and local guidelines and mandates with respect to mask-wearing and other safety precautions, along with any additional precautions that may be put in place by each individual venue.
We will continue to communicate with you regarding the COVID protocol requirements as CDC, state, local, and venue-specific mandates and guidelines change as we approach the conference date.
