During these challenging times, the Association of Children’s Museums (ACM) is committed to continuing to provide a safe and healthy environment for all event participants and staff. While ACM cannot guarantee that attendees will not become infected with COVID-19, ACM has adopted preventative measures to reduce the potential spread of the COVID-19 virus at our events in accordance with guidance provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the event venues. In addition, ACM will comply with all applicable requirements imposed by federal, state, or local health authorities for the locality in which any event is taking place. However, the responsibility for a safe and healthy event environment is shared among the event organizers, event venues, and event attendees. Towards this end, we strongly encourage all attendees to be fully vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19 prior to attending an ACM event. Further, all attendees are expected to also comply with all applicable requirements imposed by federal, state, or local health authorities for the locality in which an event is taking place, and in addition to our code of conduct, they are expected to adhere to and abide by the safety precautions ACM implements to protect against the spread of COVID-19 such as social distancing where applicable, mask wearing, personal hygiene and hand sanitization, self-monitoring and self-reporting.
Specifically, you should not attend an event if you are experiencing, or within the 10 days prior to an event have experienced, symptoms associated with COVID-19. You also should not attend an event if you believe that you 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 your treatment. In addition, attendees should self-monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 and are asked to contact ACM at Registration@ChildrensMuseums.Org if they experience symptoms of COVID-19 or test positive for the COVID-19 virus within 10 days after participating in an event. Any private health or personal data that may be received by ACM in connection with such measures and precautions will be treated as confidentially as possible.
