COVID-19 Health and Safety Policy

COVID-19 Health and Safety Policy

Protecting the health and safety of attendees, volunteers, and staff at CCMTA’s in-person meetings is our top priority. As such, we will follow venue, municipal, and provincial COVID-19 guidelines and continue to monitor the situation in Canada.

The policy will expire on December 31, 2022.

Health and Safety Measures

  • Self-Monitoring and Self-Screening: Attendees should self-monitor and self-screen for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 in the immediate period leading up, during and following the in-person meeting.

If you test positive for COVID-19, are waiting for your test results, have COVID-19 symptoms, or have been in close contact with a person who has tested positive, contact us to arrange a substitution or cancellation rather than attending the event.

Attendees already in attendance who experience COVID-19 symptoms are asked to stay away from others by remaining at or returning to their hotel. Attendees will be responsible for any fees related to changes to travel plans as well as any fees associated with an extension to stay due to a positive COVID-19 test.

  • Masks: Unless otherwise mandated by local health authorities, the use of masks indoors isn’t mandatory. Be kind to and respectful of those who choose to wear a mask.
  • Distancing: CCMTA may make adjustments to maintain distance between attendees as appropriate to the venue policy, space availability and public health guidance to enhance the safety and comfort of all attendees
