COVID19 Protocols for all In-Person and Satellite Courses

Due to the ongoing safety threats of COVID19, H&W is taking the following precautions to provide a safe learning environment for our participants, faculty, site and satellite hosts, and lab technicians. 

  1. H&W is relying on our participants to do the right thing to keep your colleagues safe. DO NOT attend an in-person course if you are unvaccinated and have been in contact with anyone who has tested positive, are awaiting results of a COVID test, or have symptoms. We are a closely-knit community and we are counting on you to do the right thing for your fellow members of that community. 
  2. H&W supports the CDC recommendation that all indviduals continue to wear N95/KN95 masks indoors. Participants who are not fully vaccinated MUST wear a mask at all times during H&W courses.  
  3. Our host partners may have additional requirements regarding masks even for those who are fully vaccinated and H&W respects and will enforce the policies of those hosting our courses. Therefore, it is recommended that those who are fully vaccinated still bring a mask to their in-person or satellite location. 
  4. Hand sanitizer will be available throughout the course.
  5. Some locations, depending on state and local regulations, will be performing additional checks at the door, including temperature checks. 
  6. It is recommended that participants register for satellites for which they are within driving distance to minimize the need to fly. 
  7. Participants will bring their own lunch and snacks to the course. Hosts will no longer provide buffet-style snacks, but may provide individually packaged snacks like granola bars, and bottled water.
  8. Whenever possible, participants will be urged to go outside during breaks for fresh air.
