COVID POLICIES & PROTOCOLS
NASW’s number one priority is the health and safety of all Conference participants. Our goal is to
hold a safe event, recognizing it is not possible to remove all risks, in particular concerning
COVID-19. We will ensure every effort is taken to provide a safe environment for Conference
attendees. Likewise, the Conference venue, the Omni Shoreham Hotel, has instituted a
Safe & Clean program with that goal in
The policies outlined below, which apply to all in-person Conference attendees (including NASW
staff, Conference presenters, exhibitors, and volunteers), are consistent with recommendations from
the CDC and the District of Columbia.
NASW will continually monitor applicable DC requirements and public health recommendations and
update the polices below as appropriate to best protect the health and safety of attendees. Please
check this website periodically for updates.
Specifically, NASW will require all attendees to:
Proof of Vaccination Requirement
- Provide proof of full vaccination against COVID-19
- Wear a face covering at all times, except when actively consuming food or a beverage
- Consent to a waiver of liability
Proof of full vaccination will be required. NASW will follow up with all registrants with a confidential
online process to upload a copy or photo of their vaccination documentation.
Proof of full COVID-19 vaccination means documentation that the individual is at least two weeks past
the full primary two-injection course of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines or a single shot of the
Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
Consistent with CDC guidance, NASW strongly encourages attendees to follow CDC guidance on staying up to
date on their vaccinations. Currently, the
that individuals receive a booster dose of either the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna
vaccines once eligible (i.e., five months after completion of the primary sequence of the
Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna vaccines or two months after a primary Johnson & Johnson injection).
Unfortunately, we will not be offering in-person access with proof of negative COVID-19 test results for
persons who are not fully vaccinated (unless you have a documented medical reason).
If you are unable to meet the above vaccination requirement, we encourage you to register for the 2022
NASW Virtual Conference, which will live-broadcast many of the in-person conference sessions including
keynotes, plenaries, and several breakouts.
NASW will be requiring that all attendees wear a mask that covers both the mouth and nose when indoors
at the hotel, unless actively eating or drinking. Specifically, attendees will be required to wear a
surgical mask with at least 3 layers of fabric, or a KN95, KF94, or N95 mask. This is consistent with
CDC guidance on face coverings. Wearing only a cloth mask or gaiter will not be acceptable; however,
individuals may choose to wear cloth masks or gaiters over a surgical mask or a KN95, KF94, or N95 mask.
Attendees will be expected to take reasonable precautions to reduce the risk of COVID transmission and
to behave responsibly. We ask all attendees to be vigilant in monitoring their health. If you are
experiencing COVID-19 symptoms,
please do not attend in-person
. If you test positive for COVID or
have been in close contact with someone who has COVID, please follow the relevant
before attending the Conference.
