In addition to McCormick Place’s Safety Plan and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations at CDC.gov, AGD has developed the following safety guidelines that will be communicated to all attendees, vendors and staff involved in the House of Delegates Meeting , November 19-21.
Attendees, staff and vendors will always be required to wear face masks. AGD will provide a mask if an individual arrives to the meeting without one.
