Covid Policy Update

Based on significant challenges experienced by many registrants in obtaining Covid-19 booster shots, we are providing this additional update to the JASM Covid policy. While we strongly recommend that all attendees get the appropriate Covid-19 booster following CDC guidance, it is not being required for event entry. If you have exceeded the recommended time after your primary vaccination without getting a booster, we ask but do not require that you provide a negative Covid test.

In order to protect our diverse participants, along with their families and communities, masks will continue to be required in all meeting venues. However, speakers may remove their masks while at the podium.

More information is also available on our Covid guidance page.
