COVID-19 Safety Measures

Sigma Tau Delta is committed to keeping its members as safe from the spread of COVID-19 as possible. Absent any COVID-19 protocol updates from the Atlanta-based CDC, masks will be required for all convention participants during all sessions, all events, and in all common areas regardless of vaccination status. Masks and hand sanitizer will be available in designated areas throughout the hotel and convention center, and seating in all events will be adjusted to allow for social distancing. Further safety measures may be implemented based upon the status of the pandemic in Atlanta in March.
