NAEYC Event Safety During the COVID-19 Global Pandemic

In keeping with the Association's duty to care and our responsibility as an event host, NAEYC is guided by best practices recommended by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Due to the recent CDC guidance update, NAEYC will no longer require proof of vaccination or negative COVID-19 tests in order to attend the Event. However, all participants are STRONGLY encouraged to (1) stay “up to date” with their COVID-19 vaccinations including any boosters, and (2) obtain a negative COVID-19 PCR test or rapid antigen test prior to attending the Event. Read the full policy here.
