The TCOM Team’s updated COVID-19 Health Policy for the 2021 TCOM Conference.
*Important Announcement related to COVID-19 and the 2021 TCOM Conference.*
To assure the optimal safety of all attendees, this year’s TCOM Conference in Lexington will require either evidence of full vaccination1 OR a negative PCR test for COVID-19 within 72 hours (3 days) prior to in-person conference check-in at the hotel. We will follow CDC and University of Kentucky guidelines regarding masks and social distancing during the conference.
We are confident that vaccines are safe, effective, and crucial to end the pandemic. We are also confident that public health precautions like hand-washing and mask-wearing are compassionate, safe, and simple practices. However, we accept everyone’s right to make choices that feel best to them. If you do not wish to follow these requirements, we can either switch your registration to the virtual conference track or provide you with a full refund.
We are looking forward to seeing you all in Lexington in October. We are committed to making the conference engaging, informative, fun, and safe for everyone.
