2022 PHiR Safety Protocols

Updated September 21, 2022

CPHA has continued to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and has adjusted our plans for the 2022 Public Health in the Rockies (PHiR) Conference based on the guidance from the CDC, state and Summit County Public Health Department. We will update this guidance as needed as we near the conference, acknowledging that guidelines can change based on COVID rates. 

CPHA continues to encourage vaccinations for every eligible individual who can do so without a medical contraindication. We continue to believe that the in-person PHiR Conference provides for the best opportunity to engage others and learn; however, we need to do so safely.

We will be following the latest recommendations from CDC and Summit County Public Health. Please review these prior to the conference.

Summit County, Colorado, community level is Low.

  • Stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines
  • Get tested if you have symptoms. 
  • If you test positive for COVID-19 or have symptoms, we will work with you to arrange a refund or transfer of your registration. 
  • People may choose to mask at any time. People with symptoms, a positive test, or exposure to someone with COVID-19 should wear a mask.

We require that all attendees be fully vaccinated to protect themselves and others from COVID-19 OR to receive a negative test result for COVID-19. Attendees will confirm that the information they present is true in the form of an attestation. If you test positive for COVID-19 within three days of the Conference, we will work with you to arrange a refund or transfer of your registration. 

We will continue to follow the science and monitor federal, state and local guidelines and adjust our safety protocol as needed to ensure a safe and comfortable conference for all attendees.

Thank you for your grace and understanding as we adapt to the evolving conditions in Summit County and our state.
