During registration, attendees will also be asked to sign the WCBR Waiver and Release of Liability for Communicable Disease, acknowledging that they understand the risks involved with in-person meetings. Due to the evolving nature of COVID-19, WCBR will publish all final safety protocols (in the form of a COVID Code of Conduct) on December 1, 2021 to ensure that the most up-to-date guidance from the CDC is considered. Registrants will receive the COVID Code of Conduct via email and will need to attest that they will comply with these measures.
