Before booking travel, visitors should always confirm with airline companies and border services the procedures and restrictions in place in the country of origin and destination for required travel documents and COVID19 restrictions.
While we hope that everyone arrives healthy and without incident, we know many have traversed long distances in confined spaces and life can be unpredictable. If you find yourself feeling ill (or having tested positive for COVID-19), please opt to self-quarantine and alert a member of the organizing committee so we may assist with any necessary arrangements. We encourage you to social distance. Masks and hand sanitizer are available at the welcome table.
