Read the Memo from Mike Barry, WASBO Executive Director, Regarding COVID-19 Safeguards Issued 9/10/2021

Ensuring the Health and Safety of Conference Attendees - WASBO Safeguards updated 9/3/2021

As we prepare for in-person conferences, providing attendees and exhibitors with a safe and healthy learning environment is our top priority.  To do this well, all participants must follow the safeguards necessary for minimizing transmission of the COVID-19 virus, including the emerging Delta variant. Additionally, this will allow a lower risk of transmitting the virus to your family and community. The safeguards include the following:

Before the Event:

Get the vaccine. All registrants including guests and speakers will be required to provide proof of being fully vaccinated. You are considered fully vaccinated:

  • 2 weeks after your second dose in a 2-dose series, such as Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or
  • 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson's Janssen vaccine

Prepare to attend by monitoring your fever or symptoms before the conference even if you are fully vaccinated.

Stay home if you have a fever or other symptoms even if you are fully vaccinated.

Stay home if you have a family member with COVID-19 even if you are fully vaccinated and follow CDC recommended precautions.

During the Event: 

Present proof of vaccination.

All attendees will be required to wear a mask indoors, with the exception of when actively eating or drinking, even if you are fully vaccinated. WASBO will provide a mask if you do not have one.

Practice physical distancing as required.

Follow the CDC’s guidance.

Please note that additional safeguards may be established based on CDC guidelines as the conference nears. If change is needed, this will be communicated in conference emails.

After the Event:

Monitor your temperature and symptoms to keep yourself and others safe.

The Fall Conference will provide school leaders with critical information and networking opportunities.  At this time, we are confident that participants can safely conduct an in-person conference with comprehensive COVID-19 safeguards in place and practiced by all who attend. We will continue to closely monitor the situation.
