Hand Cleaning
Hand sanitizer stations will be available throughout the event. By this point, everyone should know that hand washing is important in helping reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Local Venue
We are working with the Bahia Resort Hotel and are confident that they are doing everything they can as recommended by their local health agency and required by their management.

Physical Touching is Discouraged (Handshakes, Hugs, or Fist Bumps)
While many at the event are vaccinated and/or not concerned about the health risks that physical touch may present, we request that attendees, speakers, staff and sponsors respect a "no-touch" policy at the event and highly recommend washing your hands often to prevent illness.

Seating and Spacing
Seating will be spaced with the recommended distance between attendees as determined by the venue and its local government. We may limit the number of tickets sold at our event, as necessary, to meet such requirements.

While we strongly encourage our attendees, staff, and speakers to be vaccinated, we are not requiring proof of vaccination at this time.
