Health & Safety Information

National FCCLA considers the health and safety of all who attend 2022 Capitol Leadership including our attendees, staff, partners, exhibitors, and on-site vendors/service providers as our top priority. We are committed to facilitating optimal health and safety conditions throughout our event as described below.

We will follow the local city and state ordinances in effect at the time of the conference. Currently, the DC government and DC Health at coronavirus.dc.gov has in effect:

Proof of vaccination and masks are generally not required in Washington, D.C, but visitors are encouraged to check the individual establishments about COVID-19 protocols. Stay current on the latest updates from the DC government and Muriel E. Bowser, Mayor of the District of Columbia. DC Health and the DC Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency are leading the pandemic response. If travelers exhibit symptoms and are concerned that they might have coronavirus while in Washington, DC, please call DC Health’s hotline at 202-576-1117 and find information about testing in DC.

National FCCLA will continue to monitor policies and regulations. National FCCLA suggests you look at the COVID-19 requirements for any venue (i.e., restaurants, stores, theaters, museums, etc.) you plan to attend while in DC as they may change from place to place.

All attendees will be required to complete a Safety Agreement & COVID-19 Waiver Form upon arrival at the conference. Attendees under 18 must have a parent/guardian sign the waiver. This form can be found in the 2022 Required Forms listed under resources.
