Your health and safety are our top priority and we have implemented the following measures to promote the health and well-being of Convention participants and the staff of CABE, CAPSS, and the Mystic Marriot:

• We will adhere to COVID-19 safety guidelines established by CDC, CT DPH, local health authorities, and the Mystic Marriott. We will share any special protocols for our event with you as the date approaches.

• In accordance with local guidelines, masks are required for all people in public spaces, regardless of vaccination status. We are reviewing and will adjust our plans to take into account means of materials distribution to minimize lines at registration and provide safe spaces for networking and learning.

• We ask that anyone who is feeling ill or showing signs of COVID-19 remain home. If you have had contact with or been exposed to anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the 14 days prior to the event, we ask that you remain home. If you are unable to participate in the CABE/CAPSS Convention for a COVID-19 related reason, please know let us know immediately and we will work with you on your registration.

• To help people be as comfortable as possible while meeting in person, we will be offering color dots for you to attach to your nametag to share with your fellow conference participants your level of comfort in interacting with others.

Green – I am happy to have a cup of coffee and talk with you.

Yellow – I am happy to talk with you, but let’s keep socially distanced.

Red – I am not comfortable interacting with others right now, but I am happy to see you!

COVID-19 safety protocols will be updated as new information becomes available and local restrictions are amended.

Thank you for helping us create a safe and successful experience for all. We appreciate your continued support during these unprecedented times and look forward to seeing you soon!
