2022 HASDC COVID-19 Community Event Guidelines

Since March 2020, COVID-19 has created challenges for HASDC, but we continue to adapt our program & event practices to help mitigate the transmission of the virus and to provide the community access to our educational offerings. The wellbeing, health, and safety of our participants, staff, and volunteers is our top priority. HASDC is constantly monitoring the science-based data to keep our program practices up to date with the U.S Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), along with guidance from the National Hemophilia Foundation (NHF) and our local Hemophilia Treatment Centers (HTCs). 

HASDC is committed to ensuring the safety of our staff, volunteers, and the community we serve. These Event Guidelines are one way for us to demonstrate that commitment. At this time, HASDC will be implementing safety protocols including physical distancing, hand sanitizing supplies, masks, and more.

MASKING

At this time, HASDC will require the use of masks for ALL events, unless actively eating or drinking, when physical distancing is not practical. Please refer to event signage for updated event guidelines.

Masks are not required on babies or children younger than 2 years old, anyone who has trouble breathing, or anyone who is unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance. 

VACCINATIONS

HASDC requires all our staff to be fully vaccinated. We highly encourage all our participants to do the same. For some extended HASDC programming, like our summer camps and other programs & events as indicated on each individual event page, participants will be required to be vaccinated.
