COVID-19 & Staying Safe
The CascadiaJS organizers are currently monitoring the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation carefully and daily to ensure the safety of our attendees, speakers, and staff With this mind, we plan on updating this page on a regular basis.
General Safety Precautions in All Locations
To ensure safety, we plan on taking the following health precautions:
- Vaccination card or passport required for entry into the conference events.
- Masks will be provided for all attendees.
- We will work with a health coordinator to ensure all health precautions are followed.
- We will have hand sanitizer stationed at the entrance, food stations, rooms and various locations throughout the conference.
- We will regularly sanitize all surfaces throughout the event space and communicate with the venue to do the same.
Local COVID-19 Guidelines
Local COVID-19 guidelines may change as we get closer to the conference. We will rigorously enforce ALL local guidelines, including possible indoor or outdoor mask recommendations. We will update this page with guidelines specific to Seattle, Portland and Vancouver, BC as we learn more.
What We Ask of Attendees
We will ask that anyone planning to attend who is feeling under the weather, including fever, cough, or shortness of breath, to refrain from joining us this year for the safety of other attendees.
We may revise the CascadiaJS COVID Procedures in order to remain in compliance with CDC guidelines and in response to community transmission and variants at the time of the conference. You agree to regularly check this page to monitor and be prepared to comply with any such changes.
Masks are required for indoor private gatherings and outdoor events with fewer than 500 people, where physical distancing is not possible.
Physical distancing will not be possible at MoPop, so masks will be necessary except when eating and drinking.
Masks are currently required for all people in all public indoor settings, as well as crowded outdoor public spaces where physical distancing is not possible, except while actively eating or drinking in food establishments. This statewide mandate applies to everyone age 5 and older, regardless of vaccination status.
Public Health Orders require all attendees be fully vaccinated ( two doses ), and all attendees will need to present both their vaccination passport as well as government-issued ID in order to attend in person. As well, masks are required in all public indoor settings for all people born in 2009 or earlier (12+).
