Notice of Covid Safety Policies and Conference Attendance

Due to the ever-changing climate of the covid-19 pandemic, the CCHS Network Board is continuously monitoring possible impact of covid on the 2022 conference. We are also staying apprised of public health recommendations issued by the United States government as well as prominent scientific organizations (i.e., American Medical Association, American Academy of Pediatrics). Based on current data regarding variants, incidence, transmission rate, and risk of breakthrough cases, a vaccine and possibly a mask requirement will be required for conference participation. This policy may be revised as professional recommendations evolve in the coming months. The Board will also reassess the feasibility of an in-person meeting on a monthly basis and may be forced to consider conference postponement should a large gathering be deemed unsafe for our community.

These uncertainties call for some flexibility when making travel arrangements. Families may wish to research travel insurance plans as well as refundable airline tickets. Please check with hotel regarding their cancellation policy when making your reservation.

We will continue to keep our community briefed on these deliberations while proceeding with our goal of seeing many smiling faces in Newport Beach on July 19th!
