COVID-19 Safety at the VMBA Annual Convention
With the uptick in COVID cases, we want to address safety protocols for the upcoming VMBA Annual Convention.
First and foremost, our #1 priority is ensuring the safety of all: attendees, sponsors, speakers, staff and hotel personnel. Since the pandemic began, the VMBA has followed the recommendations and directives from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and Governor Northam and we will continue to do so for this event.
In addition, our host for this event – the Marriott Virginia Beach Oceanfront – has provided this information on their response to COVID-19.
Over the coming weeks, we will be tracking the latest guidance and requirements from government officials regarding mask-wearing, space capacity, and social distancing. We will provide you with regular updates on what measures will be in place during the event to maximize everyone’s safety.
For questions, contact Walt Lyons.
