Re: Policy Action Institute Safety Guidelines
APHA takes our leadership role in addressing the COVID-19 pandemic very seriously and understands the need to provide attendees of our Policy Action Institute with the safest experience possible. We are following all current Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines as well as those of state and local authorities in Washington, D.C., during the meeting period. We recognize these may change over time as conditions change in the district or elsewhere.

Washington, D.C., allows fully vaccinated people to go maskless in both indoor and outdoor public settings. Masks are optional for fully vaccinated people at the Policy Action Institute. We acknowledge some fully vaccinated people may still choose to wear masks. It is the Association’s expectation that people will respect the right of individuals to choose to wear a mask or not wear one in ways that are consistent with the science as we know it today. No one should use mask wearing as a sign of one’s vaccination status or political leanings.
We are planning to provide a degree of physical distancing in meeting rooms, along with hand sanitizer throughout the meeting venue. We will continue to monitor federal, state and local guidelines and adjust our policies as needed to ensure a safe and comfortable meeting for all attendees.
For registrants who are not comfortable traveling or are not able to travel, the 2022 Policy Action Institute will stream live. No matter how you participate, you will have access to high quality research and learning opportunities.
