COVID-19 Precautions & Requirements

NEHA follows COVID-19 safety guidelines set by CDC  and will follow all ordinances put in place by the state of Washington.


Per CDC recommendation and the state of Washington, all in-person attendees and vendors at large indoor events must now be fully vaccinated to participate.

  • Full vaccination is defined as two shots of the Pfizer or Moderna COVID vaccine or one shot of the Johnson & Johnson product (or a comparably approved vaccine if you are an international attendee).
  • Attendees who are not yet fully vaccinated against COVID-19 are strongly encouraged to do so in time for the conference. Note that it can take up to six weeks to complete the full schedule of two-dose COVID vaccines.
  • A negative (antigen or molecular) test result within 72 hours of the live event can be used in place of proof of vaccination. 
  • We welcome virtual attendance for those who are unable to be vaccinated.
  • Those traveling from outside the United States should check for any travel restrictions placed on your country of origin to ensure quarantine is not required.

Face Mask

There are currently local Washington state requirements to wear a face mask when indoors.

Other Precautions

NEHA will provide physical distancing whenever possible in meeting rooms, hand sanitizer throughout the meeting venue, and an outdoor networking event.
