HEALTH AND WELL-BEING
We are so looking forward to returning to an in-person convention this spring. TSHA is continuing to make preparations to hold the Annual Convention in accordance with all national and local government authorities to ensure the highest standards of safety, hygiene, cleanliness and operational effectiveness.
At the TSHA 66th Annual Convention & Exhibition, we will be following the CDC's guidelines for areas of high transmission. That means:
- Face masks are required for all attendees, exhibitors, speakers, vendors, and staff, regardless of vaccination status, while indoors during the Annual Convention. This includes during sessions, in the exhibit hall, and moving around the Fort Worth Convention Center.
- Social distancing sections will be located in the back of the session rooms if you are more comfortable being distanced from fellow attendees. Session rooms are larger than in years prior with the smallest room seating 300 people.
- Widened aisles and one-way traffic will give everyone more room in the exhibit hall.
- Hand sanitizing and hand washing stations will be readily available throughout the building.
- Orange lanyards will be available to signal to other attendees that you prefer distance.
Though not required for attendance, TSHA recommends that all attendees, speakers, exhibitors and guests are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 at least two weeks before arriving at the event. Visit vaccines.gov to find a vaccination site near you.
If you're traveling to the TSHA Annual Convention by air, your airline is the best source for personal safety protocols at the gate and on the airplane. Visit your airline's website to sign up for notifications related to your trip. You can also visit the DFW or Love Field websites for more information about what to expect when arriving and departing.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation with these policies so we can enjoy the signature TSHA education and networking experience safely.
If you require or are interested in COVID testing, Visit Fort Worth has provided a list of local facilities. Please call or visit the facility’s website to confirm current testing capabilities.
