COVID-19 Policy

The safety of all convention participants is a top priority for the Society of American Foresters (SAF). In making the decision to host a live meeting, we carefully weighed the risks and benefits and believe that, with the appropriate precautions, the 2022 SAF National Convention (SAF2022) can safely take place with minimal risk to our attendees. SAF will follow all CDC guidelines related to COVID-19, as well as guidelines or mandates imposed by the City and County of Baltimore and the state of Maryland. We will continue to work with the Baltimore Convention Center to ensure that meeting areas, sleeping rooms, and public areas are regularly cleaned and sanitized. Please note that, in following guidelines and regulations, we may be required to modify attendee requirements. Any updates will be posted on our website, as well as emailed to those who have registered for the meeting.

By registering to attend SAF2022, participants are agreeing to be fully vaccinated during the event or test negative for COVID-19 within 72 hours of the start of the event. Attendees that do not adhere to this policy will not be allowed to participate in the 2022 SAF National Convention. Based on current guidelines, wearing face masks will be optional and social distancing will not be required. Participants who prefer to wear masks are encouraged and welcome to do so.
