Health and Safety Protocols

Protecting the health and safety of convention attendees is important to us. All attendees, including workshop attendees and guests, to the 2022 MSEA Convention will need to complete a health attestation form on-site and provide a photo of a negative covid test taken within the last 24 hours upon arrival at the Ocean City Convention Center. Tests will be available onsite, if needed. Failure to adhere to these protocols will result in not being able to attend. Masks are strongly encouraged while in the convention center but not required.

At-home, rapid tests are perfectly fine to use to fulfill the testing requirement. You may also use the ReturnSafe app as an option to fulfill the health and safety protocols. Click here for a step-by-step guide on using ReturnSafe. It’s easy!
