Please reference CDC guidelines on quarantining if you have recently tested positive for COVID19 or you are concerned that you may have recently been exposed to the virus and could possibly test positive.
Should an event participant test positive for COVID-19, register a temperature, or become ill during the event, he/she/they should observe CDC quarantining recommendations.
All event participants are expected to observe and engage in recognized preventive actions to help ensure a safe environment, including frequent hand washing.
Please note that the CDC advises:
Vaccines: “Getting vaccinated prevents severe illness, hospitalizations, and death. Unvaccinated people should get vaccinated and continue masking until they are fully vaccinated. With the variants like Delta and Omicron, this is more urgent than ever.”
Unvaccinated individuals: “If you are not fully vaccinated and aged 2 or older, you should wear a mask in indoor public places.”
Fully vaccinated individuals: “To maximize protection from the Delta and Omicron variants and prevent possibly spreading it to others, wear a mask indoors in public if you are in an area of substantial or high transmission.”
Data Center World recommends all participants review the CDC guidance on travel.
Be aware, the CDC requires masks at public transportation hubs and on all public transportation. This includes but is not limited to airports, flights, taxi/ride share, and local busses.
