Updated In-Person Event Safety Guidelines

Posted By: Krystal Humphrey Education , Events ,



BAAA has been following the guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control (link CDC) and will continue to do so. While masks/face coverings are not required for any outdoor events, we will be requiring them for some indoor events for all individuals where social distancing isn't possible. Unvaccinated people are strongly encouraged to continue mask wearing, and are advised not to attend indoor events. All individuals should take appropriate measures to protect their health. By attending an event, you are confirming that you aren't sick or showing symptoms of any communicable disease.

Please note: Some event venues are still requiring face coverings of all individuals and we will be asking our members to comply with any such requirements at those venues. 

We reserve the right to amend or reinstate protocols deemed appropriate or recommended by the CDC or other relevant authorities.

Attendee Agreement

By registering and attending any in-person BAAA program you are agreeing to our Safety Liability Agreement. As deemed necessary, additional requirements will be added below:

  • If you are sick, caring for an ill person, interact with a member of a vulnerable population, or may have recently been exposed to COVID-19 we ask that you stay home for self-quarantine. 
  • Face masks that fully cover both the nose and mouth at all times are required as necessary. We will provide one-time use masks to attendees that do not arrive with their own.
  • Social distancing must be maintained at all times (6 ft. is the magic number). 
  • Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer often, especially after touching high traffic areas. 
**Communicable diseases such as COVID-19 can be highly contagious viruses that pose inherent risks that cannot be fully eliminated regardless of care or precautions taken. As such, by participating in classes, meetings, or events hosted by BAAA in any facility you hereby assert you do so voluntarily and that by participating you knowingly assume any and all risks related to COVID-19 or other communicable diseases.
