What steps are being taken to ensure safety at this event?
The CascadiaJS organizers are currently monitoring the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation carefully and daily to ensure the safety of our attendees, speakers, and staff. With this mind, we plan on updating this information on a regular basis. Given what we know now, the following safety measures will be employed and enforced to the strictest possible extent:
- Anyone present on-site including attendees, sponsors, speakers, vendors, staff, and volunteers, are required to prove full vaccination, and provide a negative test result within 48 hours (for PCR) or 24 hours (for Antigen) of admission, and submit to a daily health screening with temperature check. Full vaccination is defined as 2 or more doses of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine, or 1 or more of the J&J vaccine.
- Photos of vaccination cards and PCR/antigen test results are OK.
- Hand sanitizer will be available at every sponsor booth and other locations.
- Lunch and dinner will be served outside.
Given these safety measures, we will likely make masking optional unless directed otherwise by government or health officials.
I can't take the vaccine. Can I still come?
If you cannot take the vaccine due to a medical issue, an exemption can be made with proof of a doctor's note. You will still be required to submit proof of negative test result within 48 hours (for PCR) or 24 hours (for Antigen) of admission, and submit to daily temperature checks.
What is involved in the Health Screening?
The health screening is a few questions that ask about your current health, known contact with Covid-positive individuals, and documenting your temperature.
In what instances will the conference be postponed, cancelled, or taken online?
The conference will move forward in-person unless shut down by local, state, or federal government or health officials.
When you purchase a ticket to CascadiaJS, all sales are final:
We understand that sometimes your plans change, but we have no flexibility here. Organizing a conference requires us to spend money in advance on a venue, catering, hoodies, vendors and dozens of other expenses related to the event.
If you cannot attend the conference for any reason, you are more than welcome to sell your ticket and we can assist with the transfer process.
