Updated Covid Protocols

We are very excited to finally return to IN-PERSON conferences! That being said, as Covid cases rise across the country, we are closely monitoring the situation, and hope that everyone attending our events has been fully vaccinated if they are able to be.

First and foremost, we think it’s smart for everyone to get a Covid test before hopping on a plane for one of our programs. We will also have testing available on-site and hope this provides a level of comfort for everyone attending.

As mentioned above, we are monitoring the virus and are making decisions based on the location of each program, and will follow local protocols for masking etc.

Please feel free to reach out to Kate Levin (klevin@sllf.org) if you have any questions or concerns regarding covid safety measures at our conferences!
