COVID-19 Policy/Guidelines: FHCA continues to monitor policy and procedures during the COVID-19 pandemic. The safety and well-being of our members, including facility and corporate employees, speakers, Conference guests, sponsors and exhibitors is our top priority. We are collaborating with health care experts and the Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel to implement best practices aimed at managing the spread of the COVID-19 virus and following guidelines from the Florida Department of Health and Centers for Disease Control (CDC). FHCA has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus; however, FHCA, under no circumstances, is able to guarantee that you or a guest will not become infected with the virus while at the 2021 Annual Conference & Trade Show. Adherence to the FHCA event policy and guidelines will be continuously monitored and enforced by the association and hotel. As state and federal guidelines change, so will the FHCA Event Safety policy. The current Safety Policy can be viewed HERE.
Despite safety precautions at Conference by FHCA and the Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel, attendees should acknowledge that there is a risk of contracting the COVID-19 virus and that FHCA cannot prevent and is not responsible for such risk of infection to any person who chooses to attend meetings/conferences. FHCA requests that anyone who is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or have recently been exposed to a COVID-positive individual to stay home and avoid the risk of infection to others. Further health and safety guidelines can be found HERE. I acknowledge and agree to all of the health and safety information outlined as a Conference participant.
