Health & Safety Guidelines

Updated: Aug. 16, 2022

The health and safety of our members, attendees, sponsors, staff and speakers are of utmost importance to AGA, especially as the country continues to deal with the effects of the pandemic. 

  • There are no major pandemic restrictions for Washington DC businesses, events and other establishments and public places.  
  • There are no longer city guidelines or recommendations for social distancing or limiting of customers in public spaces. 
  • The CDC is no longer recommending social distancing as a way to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. See August 11, 2022 Press Release.
  • Bring your mask.  Wearing face mask is highly recommended.

Vaccination Proof/Covid-19 Test:

  • DC Mayor Bowser announced the lifting of the district-wide vaccine requirement for indoor facilities, effective February 15, 2022.  

  • AGA follows the DC Government guidelines and will not require vaccination proof or a negative covid test to attend Fraud 2022, however, AGA strongly recommends full vaccination for all attendees.

Mask:

  • Washington DC has lifted its mask mandate as of March 1, 2022.

  • Masks are recommended indoors, regardless of vaccination status, but are NOT required. While the CDC continues to recommend masks, AGA is following the local ordinance and want you to do what is comfortable for you as it relates to your health and will respect your choice.  All attendees should be mindful and respectful of other attendees' health choices. 

AGA will continue to monitor the latest guidelines from the CDC and Washington DC Public Health and will update this page when there are changes in the guidelines.

Attendee Conduct Policy:

AGA is dedicated to providing a safe, hospitable, productive environment for everyone attending our events, regardless of ethnicity, religion, disability, physical appearance, gender or sexual orientation. It is important to remember that a community in which people feel unsafe or threatened is neither healthy nor productive.  AGA prohibits conduct that intimidates, threatens or harasses during our training events. This policy applies to speakers, staff, exhibitors, sponsors, volunteers, contractors and attendees. PDT participants found to have violated this policy may be sanctioned, including removal from PDT and being barred from future events, at the discretion of AGA.
