New Apartmentalize Safety Protocols

Posted By: Jon Lowder Blog,

NAA's Apartmentalize conference is in Chicago in two weeks and NAA just announced updated safety protocols mandated by the city. From NAA's update:

The City of Chicago has announced that it will re-institute a face mask mandate for all indoor public settings, including Apartmentalize’s venue, McCormick Place. The statement includes the following guidelines: 

"All individuals aged two and over, regardless of their vaccination status, will be required to wear a mask as of Friday, August 20, while indoors in public settings. Similar to previous mask mandates, masks can be removed at restaurants, bars and other eating/drinking establishments by patrons when they are actively eating and drinking. Masks remain mandatory on public transportation, in healthcare settings, schools, and correctional and congregate settings. The new public health order does not include capacity limits at public places, and masking remains optional in outdoor settings, where the risk of COVID-19 transmission is lower. Masks are recommended for unvaccinated individuals in crowded outdoor settings."

In line with this mandate, all Apartmentalize attendees, exhibitors and staff will be required to wear a face mask while indoors at McCormick Place and Wintrust Arena. NAA will have disposable face masks available, but everyone is encouraged to bring their own.

We have a great event planned, and we look forward to seeing you in Chicago!
