January 12, 2022: In this ever-changing environment of COVID-19, the CADA Board of Directors recently voted to update our COVID-19 policies for the 2022 CADA State Convention and the 2022 CASL State Conference to align more closely with the current California Department of Public Health requirements for events of 500 attendees or greater.
All attendees, staff, presenters, exhibitors, and invited guests will be required to show proof of vaccination OR a written negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours upon check-in at the CADA Registration Desk.
Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination:
Proof of vaccination can be in the form of your physical Vaccination Record Card (CRC) from the CDC, an image of the card, if you have a picture on your phone, OR your digital COVID-19 vaccine record issued by the State of California. All attendees will be asked to upload their vaccination card in advance.
Proof of Negative COVID Test
The unvaccinated person must provide written evidence of a negative COVID-19 test.
There are two types of viral tests that can be used: polymerase chain reaction (PCR)/nucleic acid amplification tests (NAATs) and antigen tests. Test results must be provided in the form of written documentation (paper or electronic copy). The documentation must include:
• Type of test (indicating it is a PCR/NAAT or antigen test)
• Entity issuing the result (e.g. laboratory, healthcare provider or telehealth service)
• Specimen collection date. A negative test result must show the specimen was collected within 72 hours before the event
• Information that identifies the person (full name plus at least one other identifier such as date of birth) and matches ID shown
• Negative test result
UPDATED MASK POLICY FOR THE CADA CONVENTION - EFFECTIVE MARCH 1, 2022
In light of rapidly-evolving guidance from the CDC, state officials, and local health authorities, as well as the new indoor masking guidelines soon to be implemented in California schools, the CADA Board has voted to update our face-covering policy. Effective immediately, we are moving from a “MASKS REQUIRED” policy at any overnight CADA/CASL Event to “MASKS RECOMMENDED.”
Attendees agree to abide by any prevention or safety measures CADA/CASL, the “facility”, and state and local agencies may have in place during the Event. Attendees agree not to attend the event if they become ill, are aware they have been directly exposed to the COVID-19 virus within two weeks prior to the Event, or exhibit any symptoms of the COVID-19 virus prior to or during the Event.
While only unvaccinated attendees are required to show proof of a negative COVID test, CADA recommends all attendees test before they arrive at the CADA Convention or CASL Conference, to ensure the safety of all attendees.
