To ensure our YSC community remains as safe as possible, we’ve prepared some COVID-19 guidelines for the 2023 YSC Wellness Summit. YSC prioritizes the health and safety of our community above all else, and we know you do too!
Please read the following COVID-19 protocols carefully and follow them throughout the event:
Testing: It is recommended that all attendees take a COVID-19 test 24 hours or less before your Summit arrival. If you test positive, please stay home.
Vaccinations: While we will not ask for proof of vaccination, YSC strongly encourages all Summit participants to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, including eligible booster shots.
Masking: Masks are not required, but you may want to consider wearing one in crowded spaces or if you are currently immunocompromised. We will provide a supply of masks in the registration area, as well as hand sanitizing stations.
Social distancing: We will do our best to allow for space in all event areas so that you may social distance as you wish.
*Please note that YSC will be following COVID-19 trends carefully in the weeks leading up to the Wellness Summit. We reserve the right to change the COVID-19 safety protocols, so that we are taking the current infection rates and spread into account. All registrants will be notified of changes in advance of their arrival.
Everyone who plans to be onsite for the Summit should test for COVID-19 before arriving using an at-home or lab-based antigen test*.
You are welcome to bring additional tests for the duration of your stay. Should you test positive onsite, see information below.
*Fun fact: Did you know most insurance plans cover at-home COVID-19 tests for free? Ask at your local pharmacy.
If you test positive while onsite:
Contact a YSC staff person immediately (516-268-6706).
You are testing negative, but you feel ill or have a fever: do NOT come to the Summit and the event site. If you begin to feel ill onsite, contact the designated YSC staff person (516-268-6706).
If someone in your household has tested positive within 5 days of arrival – do NOT come to the Summit and the event site.
Thank you for your cooperation as we all prepare to be together for this incredible event! See you in Austin.
