Get vaccinated and stay up to date on your COVID-19 vaccines

Upon registration, meeting participants will be asked to submit their COVID-19 vaccination status. In-person attendees will be required to be up to date on their COVID-19 vaccination. There is also an option for virtual attendance for those who are not vaccinated or who would prefer not to respond.

An adult person is considered “up to date” when they are fully vaccinated and boosted:

  • 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, or
  • 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine


  • Everyone 18+ has had a booster dose of either Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna (mRNA COVID-19 vaccines) at the appropriate time.

Wear a mask
Upon arrival at the conference, mask wearing will be in accordance with the most up to date CDC Guidance for Wearing Masks, COVID-19 Community Level, and Dallas County Orders related to masking.


Monitor your health daily and stay-home if you’re sick

Attendees are instructed not to enter the conference spaces while experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19. Each day prior to the meeting, participants will be asked to perform a self-assessment with the CDC Corona Virus Self-Checker. Signage will be displayed at entry points to remind participants of self-assessments and event-required infection prevention measures. Get tested for COVID-19 in accordance with CDC testing recommendations.


Stay 6 feet away from others

Organizers will support social distancing by increasing spacing between seating to reduce crowding and improve traffic flow. Breakout room capacity will be limited to enable social distancing.


Practice hygiene

Attendees will be instructed to follow all CDC infection prevention guidelines, including washing hands frequently for at least 20 seconds and covering coughs and sneezes with the crook of the elbow. If a participant starts to feel unwell while at the conference, instructions to convenient local urgent care and emergency rooms will be provided. Hand sanitizer will be provided at stations in conference rooms and communal areas by the meeting organizers.


Take precautions while traveling

Check the Dallas County COVID-19 situation before traveling. Take a COVID-19 test before and after travel. Free tests can be ordered here. Wearing a mask over your nose and mouth is required in indoor areas of public transportation (including airplanes) and indoors in U.S. transportation hubs (including airports). Do not travel if you are sick, tested positive for COVID-19 and haven’t ended isolation, had close contact with a person with COVID-19 and haven’t ended quarantine, or are waiting for results of a COVID-19 test.

Stay Flexible

The pandemic has been a learning experience and recommendations have changed with time and may continue to do so. OASH Region 6 will keep up to date with CDC recommendations and local regulations to revise these mitigation procedures if the situation or guidance changes.
