The safety of our event attendees is extremely important to NRF Foundation (“Foundation”). After careful consideration, the Foundation requires all attendees of NRF Foundation Honors to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 and to provide valid proof of vaccination.
For purposes of this in-person event, an individual is fully vaccinated, as described currently by the Centers for Disease Control (“CDC”) and/or World Health Organization (“WHO”):
- Two weeks after their second dose in a two dose series vaccine produced by Pfizer, Moderna, or Oxford/AstraZeneca;
- Two weeks after a single dose vaccine produced by Johnson & Johnson;
- Two weeks after completion of all doses recommended for full immunity of vaccines that have received Emergency Use Authorization by the WHO.
For a complete list of these vaccines see Covid-19 Vaccine Characteristics | ViewHub (view-hub.org).
For vaccinations obtained outside of the United States: Interchanging the COVID-19 vaccines listed above is acceptable for establishing fully vaccinated status.
The Foundation requires that each attendee provide valid proof vaccination during registration, on-site check-in, and as otherwise directed by the Foundation. In future weeks, the Foundation will provide additional details for the types of proof that it will accept and ways to transmit such proof.
ANYONE WHO DOES NOT SUPPLY VALID PROOF OF BEING FULLY VACCINATED WILL NOT BE ADMITTED TO THE NRF FOUNDATION HONORS OR ANY PORTION OF IT. THERE WILL BE NO REFUNDS IF VALID PROOF OF VACCINATION IS NOT PROVIDED.
The Foundation is not and will not be responsible for any expenses, damages or losses resulting from the enforcement of this COVID-19 Policy.
The Foundation will not provide COVID-19 testing or vaccinations.
The Foundation will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation including CDC guidance, state and local laws, and guidance from the convention center for changes and additional requirements. The Foundation reserves the right to amend this COVID-19 Event Policy in any way and at any time and will announce more details closer to the event.
