COVID-19 Safety

COVID-19 Safety Protocol

Updated on 3/31/22

Housing California (CA) is eager to reconnect with our partners at our upcoming Annual Conference April 4-6, 2022. The conference will be a hybrid event with an in person option at the SAFE Credit Union in Sacramento, CA.

Given that our attendees’ health and safety is our #1 priority, we have developed important safety protocols for the conference. These measures are intended to comply with applicable federal, state, and local laws and are based upon guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) and public health authorities.

Housing CA will continue to closely monitor all guidelines and regulations and reserves the right to change, suspend, or revoke all or parts of these safety protocols and measures as appropriate. Should the need arise to postpone or cancel the 2022 Housing CA Conference, we will make that decision in as timely a manner as we can, and all registrants will be notified by email regarding rescheduling (or refunds).

Non-Compliance: Attendees who are not able to or willing to comply with this protocol are invited to participate in the event virtually. If you are not able to comply with this guidance onsite, you may be removed from the event without refund of any registration fees.

As of February 4, 2022, the following protocols will be in place for in-person attendees:

  • Attendees are required to show proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 during the check in process. For purposes of this Protocol, “fully vaccinated” means that you are fully vaccinated and you have received the booster vaccine. (If you have a valid medical or religious exemption, a negative COVID-19 PCR or antigen test taken no more than 2 days (48 hours) prior to the start of the conference will be required. Attendees will be responsible for the cost of this testing). Proof of results will be requested at the registration desk.
  • Attendees should stay home if they have tested positive for COVID-19, are waiting for their COVID-19 test results, have COVID-19 symptoms, or have been in close contact with a person who has tested positive for or who has symptoms of COVID-19. If one of the previous scenarios is the case, you may be eligible for a full or partial refund if you are not able to attend the conference.
  • Masks covering both your face and mouth are required at all times when attendees are indoors except while actively eating, drinking, or presenting. Attendees are expected to bring their own masks. You are strongly encouraged to “upgrade your mask” by wearing a N95, KF94, KN95, double mask, or fitted surgical mask. A limited number of masks will be available on-site
  • During conference-provided meals, Housing CA will provide socially distanced space for seating inside the Safe Credit Union and on the outdoor terrace. Attendees are strongly encouraged to practice social distancing while eating or drinking.
  • Attendees are strongly encouraged to practice appropriate physical distancing while attending the conference. Event spaces will also be designed, as much as possible, to accommodate social distancing.
  • The SAFE Credit Union Convention Center and hotels in the Housing CA lodging block will provide hand sanitizing stations and enhanced cleaning and sanitizing procedures.
