ODAC Health & Safety Guidelines
ODAC is dedicated to providing a safe event experience for all participants involved including participants, speakers, exhibitors and sponsors, event staff, vendors, and anyone else that will be present at the event. Given that the responsibility of a safe in-person event is equally shared among all event participants, we have developed the following ODAC 2022 safety and health measures. The measures implemented are based on responses from our COVID precautions survey and CDC recommendations.
