    COVID-19 Safety Protocol


    Because we are sharing space with the 
    Innovations & Solutions for Ending Unsheltered Homelessness Conference, Funders Together will follow the National Alliance to End Homelessness’ COVID-19 safety protocols, which includes a requirement to provide proof of being up to date on all vaccinations for COVID-19 prior to admittance to the conference venue. Allowances will made for documented medical or religious exemptions, following NAEH’s protocol as seen here.  

    Read NAEH’s 2023 Conference Safety Plan for more information.


    Vaccination Requirements
     

    This includes being vaccinated with all recommended doses in the primary series and one booster. All registrants, whether opting for joint registration or just Funders Forum registration, will be required to upload their vaccination records to Crowdpass, the Alliance’s platform for COVID-19 clearance. This must be completed in order to gain entry to both the Funders Forum and NAEH conference. 

    Masking

    • Funders Together will require masks to be worn indoors during the Funders Forum except when actively eating or drinking. Funders Together will not require masks during outdoor gatherings. 
    • Please note that in the rest of the conference hotel, masking is optional. 

    Testing

    • Funders Together is also requiring all Funders Forum participants to take a rapid test the morning of the event and to provide proof of their rapid test with a negative result at registration. (A photo is fine.)
    • Participants are required to acquire their own rapid test. If you forget to bring one, we will have a limited number on hand. 

    What Do I Need to Bring and Show on February 28?

    Please bring your own mask to the Funders Forum. A high-quality mask (N95, KN95, or KN94) is preferred. When you arrive at the Funders Forum check-in table, we will ask to see two items:

    1. Your Crowdpass vaccination verification, and
    2. A photo of a rapid test taken that morning.

    We will then give you your conference name badge and a red, yellow, or green sticker to place on your name badge indicating your comfort level with physical contact (red = no physical contact, yellow = handshakes and fist bumps, green = open to hugs with consent).
