We are strongly urging attendees to be vaccinated prior to arriving at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront so we can provide as safe a meeting as possible.

In California, unvaccinated persons continue to be required to wear masks in all indoor public settings. In light of review of the most recent CDC recommendations, to achieve universal masking in indoor public settings, we are recommending that fully vaccinated people also mask in indoor public settings. This adds an extra precautionary measure for all to reduce the transmission of COVID-19

In California, everyone must wear a mask on public transit (airports, planes, trains, buses, stations) and in healthcare settings, K-12 schools and childcare settings, correctional facilities, cooling centers, and shelters.

Everyone should take these precautions:

  • Please get tested for COVID-19 three days prior to your arrival.
  • Do not come to the event if you are sick or have tested positive for COVID-19.
  • Do not come to the event if you have been advised to quarantine or isolate by a health care provider or a public health official.
  • If you develop signs and symptoms of illness while at the event, please leave and seek medical assistance as appropriate.
  • Abide by the current mask guidelines.
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water. Use hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available. Hand sanitizer and extra face coverings will be provided by organizers.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Cover your mouth when coughing or sneezing.
