Health & Safety Protocols for Sweet Adelines International's 2022 Events
The well-being of Sweet Adelines members and attendees is our top priority as we return to in-person events. While it's impossible to eliminate all risks related to COVID-19, Sweet Adelines will be implementing protective measures for the health and safety of those attending 2022 in-person events which include the International Education Symposium (IES) and the 74th Annual International Convention and Competition.
Attendees, faculty, exhibitors, staff and competitors must be fully vaccinated (with the exception of those with qualifying exemptions*) to attend all 2022 International Events.
You must be fully vaccinated by June 29 to attend IES, and by August 22 to attend International Convention and Competition.
A person is considered fully vaccinated:
- Two weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose vaccine series*, such as Pfizer and Moderna.
- Two weeks after a single-dose vaccine*, such as Johnson & Johnson.
- Booster shots are recommended, when eligible.
This applies to all COVID-19 vaccines authorized for use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, World Health Organization, and by the national health authority of the country where it was administered.
Anyone who has a medical condition, disability, or religious/spiritual belief or practice that does not allow them to receive the COVID-19 vaccine can apply for an exemption.
Applications and letters can be submitted after July 1, 2022 to email@example.com or presented on-site in Phoenix. Upload process will be detailed prior to July 1. Negative test results must be uploaded to the third-party portal. Instructions on how to upload to the third-party portal will be emailed to each registrant prior to Convention.
