NEIWPCC is committed to providing an event that keeps all participants as safe as possible and promotes the well-being of our community. NEIWPCC requires all individuals who participate in the Annual NPS Conference & to be fully vaccinated to attend.

Following the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) guidance, people are considered “fully vaccinated” either 2 weeks after they receive their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or 2 weeks after they receive their single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine.

As new guidance regarding vaccine recommendations is updated by the CDC to include booster doses in the future, participants may be required to provide proof they have received such doses.

In addition, all attendees must adhere to all NPS Conference & safety measures. The NPS Conference will operate according to the prevailing federal, state, county, and city laws, regulations, recommendations, and guidelines, as well as venue-specific regulations for the Holiday Inn, as they are in effect over the NPS Conference dates (including but not limited to face mask requirements, social distancing, etc.).

To ensure safety, we will not be accepting on-site registrations.

We will continue to revise our procedures as needed to reflect the current state of the pandemic.
