CFA LIVE EVENTS COVID-19 POLICY & GUIDELINES
The CFA wants to ensure a safe environment that helps protect our live event attendees and staff from COVID-19. The CFA’s Live Events COVID-19 policy and requirements is based on the following principles:
- Ensuring the health and safety of our attendees and staff;
- Ensuring we are doing what we can to reduce the chances of our attendees and staff, or a member of their family, from contracting COVID-19; and
- Ensuring that the CFA meets or exceeds public health directives and guidelines.
All attendees are strongly recommended to have full vaccination, medical exemption signed by a medical professional licensed to practice medicine in Canada, or proof of negative COVID-19 antigen test prior to or upon their arrival at the event.
All attendees are strongly encouraged to wear a mask at all times during the event, unless you are seated or standing while having a beverage or food in accordance with public health guidelines.
A mask should:
- Securely cover the nose and mouth.
- Fit closely to the face without gaps.
- Fit securely to the head with ties or ear loops.
- Maintain their shape after washing and drying.
- Be made of at least two layers of tightly woven material (such as cotton or linen); and
- Be large enough to cover the nose and mouth completely and comfortably without gaping.
GUIDELINES TO PROTECT THE COMMUNITY
We ask all attendees to stay home if they are ill and to not enter the venue if they are experiencing any of the following symptoms: fever or chills, an unexplained cough, and/or shortness of breath, and/or or loss of smell and taste.
We encourage all attendees to:
- Wash their hands often with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer
- Avoid touching their eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
- Practice social distancing during the live event
- Cover their cough or sneeze with a tissue or sleeve/arm
ASSUMPTION OF RISK
All event attendees acknowledge that despite all preventative measures that are put in place by the venue and the event hosts, there is still an inherent risk of exposure to illness that exists in any public place where people are present.
All event attendees voluntarily assume such risk for attendance at any CFA event (e.g. CFA Golf Tournaments, Meet & Greets, CFA Law Day, CFA National Convention, Franchise Canada Shows, etc.).
