Health & Safety Hub: COVID-19 Precautions

Effective, September 1, 2022, AAFA will no longer require guests to show proof of vaccination to attend meetings or events. For safety reasons, AAFA still recommends that guests be vaccinated (and wear masks if not vaccinated or immune-compromised) but we will no longer check the vaccination status of each attendee. While COVID is still with us, the risks seem more manageable so we have made this policy change.

Communicate Your Comfort Level (choose your own sticker color to place on name badge to communicate your contact preference with others)

  • Green - I'm OK with handshakes & high fives.
