Wearing masks is important to prevent the asymptomatic spread of the virus that causes COVID-19, regardless of what state you are traveling to or from. Choosing not to wear a mask puts the health of others and your own health at risk. Masks will always be required for all conference participants, guests and exhibitors when they are not actively eating or drinking, regardless of vaccination status. Any person who refuses to comply with NAEOP’s mask mandate will not be allowed to participate in any further in-person events, and will not be issued a refund. We are following Washington state COVID-19 protocols, and reserve the right to change these guidelines as state mandates shift.
