Covid-19 Vaccination and Mask Policy

Effective November 1, 2021 | Amended December 1, 2022

Health and Safety Policies for In-person Events

Since 2001, Agile Alliance has been informing and inspiring people and organizations as they explore, apply, and expand the values, principles, and practices outlined in the Agile Manifesto. Our ambition is to create spaces for people and organizations seeking to humanely, effectively, and sustainably discover and deliver outcomes that matter.

Agile Alliance’s first priority in all meetings and events decisions is the safety and welfare of our members, attendees, exhibitors, partners, and team. In order to enable in-person events to take place with lower risk to participants, effective December 1, 2022, Agile Alliance will require the following for admittance to any in-person Agile Alliance event:

  • Proof of COVID-19 vaccination, or
  • Proof of a negative PCR test, at the attendees’ expense, within 48 hours of arrival at the conference.

Masking is strongly encouraged, but not required.

This policy is based on guidance and recommendations issued by the United States (USA) federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other international public health authorities. The Covid-19 vaccines approved by the USA FDA for emergency use authorization and the vaccines that the USA FDA has fully approved have been determined to be critical in reducing the community prevalence of Covid-19.

If you have any Covid-19 symptoms within the 10 days prior to the beginning of the conference or event, please DO NOT ATTEND. We will give you a full refund (regardless of our standard fee policies) with proof of a positive Covid-19 test. If you start feeling sick during the conference or event, we ask that you quarantine in your room, and see the on-site nurse, which is provided at the conference at no charge to attendees.

Agile Alliance’s Covid-19 policy is designed to create an exceptional, safe experience for attendees and participants at our conferences and events. We will continue to monitor the Covid-19 pandemic, as well as local, state, and federal regulations, and will revise our policies as appropriate should conditions change.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. We are all in this together.
