Angel Capital Association's Fall Forum 2021 Health & Safety Guidelines
We have NO higher priority than the safe and healthy convening of the ACA community. We will be strictly following the requirements of the city of Philadelphia, the Science Center and the guidance of the CDC.
- WHEN CHECKING IN ON-SITE, EVERY ATTENDEE IS REQUIRED TO PROVIDE PROOF OF VACCINATION. NO ONE WILL BE ADMITTED ON-SITE WITHOUT THIS PROOF. AS BADGES WILL REPRESENT YOUR CLEARING THE COVID PROTOCOL, BADGES MUST BE WORN AT ALL TIMES IN THE SCIENCE CENTER. AN ACA COMPLIANCE OFFICER WILL BE MONITORING ALL SPACES TO ENSURE THAT BADGES AND MASKS ARE BEING WORN.
- We are now requiring MANDATORY masks indoors for all attending individuals, unless eating or drinking.
- You must follow all current CDC guidelines for travel, whether you’re flying international or domestic. You are encouraged to get tested for COVID-19 24 - 48 hours but no more than 72 hours prior to entering the Science Center.
- Due to ongoing supply issues we are no longer requiring testing with proof of COVID-19 vaccination.
We will continue to monitor all local and national requirements and will modify any of our requirements accordingly. We look forward to a safe and healthy gathering in Philadelphia.
In the event of attendee illness during the ACA 2021 Fall Forum, the attendee shall:
- Inform ACA staff right away if they have a concern that they or someone they know has been exposed to COVID-19
- If there is potential that an attendee has been exposed or might be sick with anything, the attendee will need to provide evidence of a negative rapid test taken that day
- If a test is unavailable or is refused by the attendee, they will be asked to leave the event and/or quarantine
- If a registrant must leave the event, registration fees will be transferred and applied to another ACA event
Quorum at the Science Center s GBAC STARTM facility. GBAC STARTM is a performance-based accreditation program that helps facilities demonstrate they have the work practices, procedures, and protocols to prepare, respond, and recover from outbreaks and pandemics. The program was developed by the Global Biorisk Advisory CouncilTM (GBAC), a division of ISSA. GBAC STAR accreditation helps to instill confidence that the facility has the proper cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention systems in place.
Seating capacity will be managed in each of our program rooms to allow for extra spacing. Extra viewing areas may be provided outside of the breakouts rooms.
Hand sanitizers will be available throughout the facility.
