COVID-19 Safety Information

Because COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is spread mainly from person-to-person contact, the Airport Minority Advisory Council (AMAC) has adopted preventative measures to reduce the spread of the COVID virus at its conferences and events in accordance with the guidance published by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for events and gatherings, in coordination with event host properties. AMAC will comply with all applicable requirements imposed by state, provincial and local health authorities for the locality in which the conference or event takes place. However, AMAC cannot guarantee that conference attendees will not become infected with COVID-19.

Individuals who fall within either of the categories listed below should not attend AMAC conferences or events:

  1. Individuals who are experiencing, or within the 14 days prior to the conference or event have experienced, symptoms associated with COVID-19; or
  2. Individuals who believe that they may have been exposed to a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19 or have been diagnosed with COVID-19 and are not yet cleared as non-contagious by state or local public health authorities or the health care team responsible for their treatment.

Conference and event attendees should self-monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 and are asked to contact AMAC at info@amac-org.com if experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 within 14 days after participating in an AMAC conference or event.
