SHRM-Atlanta continually evaluates its safety protocols as they relate to in-person events, and effective immediately the Board of Directors has decided to discontinue the COVID-19 vaccination/testing mandate.
At this time, SHRM-Atlanta will no longer require that event attendees be vaccinated or provide proof of a negative test.
We recognize that there is no way to gather without some risk, and our goal is to be as transparent as possible with the measures we and our facilities are taking at the time of the event. The original vaccine mandate, in addition to other safety protocols such as mask wearing and distancing, was implemented to keep all attendees as safe as possible. SHRM-Atlanta still believes vaccines are the best method to accomplish this. Boosters and other additional vaccine doses that are approved by the CDC are also strongly recommended.
It is likely that CDC guidelines will change, and SHRM-Atlanta will frequently examine our guidelines to ensure the safety of all our attendees. We ask anyone who is symptomatic prior to arrival to refrain from attending to minimize risk of spreading COVID to other attendees.
