Health & Safety Hub: COVID-19 Precautions

AAFA will no longer require guests to show proof of vaccination to attend meetings or events. For safety reasons, AAFA still recommends that guests be vaccinated (and wear masks if not vaccinated or immune-compromised) but we will no longer check the vaccination status of each attendee. While COVID is still with us, the risks seem more manageable so we have made this policy change.
  • Your attendance at the Social Responsibility Committee Meeting (and any related activities) indicates your agreement that you will comply with all policies and that AAFA holds no responsibility for anyone who is infected by COVID-19 or any other disease.
  • By attending the Social Responsibility Committee Meeting, you agree to abide by and engage in certain health and wellness beneficial conduct while attending the event. This is includes, but is not limited to: washing hands often, covering your nose or mouth when coughing or sneezing, not attending the event if you are ill or have tested positive for COVID-19. 
  • Should any local, state, or federal guidelines be updated to include new mandates, AAFA will follow those requirements.
Additionally, please be sure to review AAFA’s Code of Conduct for meetings and events.
