Important Information About COVID 19
To ensure the health and safety of attendees at our in-person events, NAWA will follow guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local health authorities regarding infectious diseases such as COVID-19. These regulations may change rapidly, so please check current government guidelines for the event location before attending. Please do not attend an in-person event if you feel sick or are showing symptoms known to be associated with COVID-19 or another infectious disease. We ask attendees who test positive within a week of the event to contact us so that we may notify other participants of a potential exposure. NAWA will keep the identity of the person testing positive confidential. NAWA will provide masks at all in-person events and anyone attending should feel comfortable requesting or wearing one.
