To assist with the prevention of the spread of COVID-19, the Partnership requires that anyone entering our space to be fully vaccinated or show proof of a negative PCR test within 72 hours of entering. Fully vaccinated, as defined by the CDC, means two doses of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine or one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Boosters are not required. If you are vaccinated, you can confirm vaccination in two ways: Ahead of time: All Partnership event registration pages include a section to collect vaccine information, including uploading a copy of your vaccine card. It is our strong preference that you share vaccine information this way. Recurring program participants should share their vaccine information with their program coordinator. Day of: A Partnership staffer will greet you and check vaccination cards. You may show the physical card, a copy, or a photo. If you are not vaccinated, you must provide proof of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of the event or program. You can provide this proof two ways: Ahead of time: Following your registration for the event and indicating that you are not vaccinated, a Partnership staff member will contact you via the email address you registered with. Within 72 hours of the event, we will remind you to share a negative PCR test. Our strong preference is that you email the test results ahead of your arrival. Day of: A Partnership staffer will greet you and check proof of your negative PCR test if you have not already emailed it to us. This data is not tracked or shared and will be permanently deleted upon the conclusion of the program. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has determined that the HIPAA Privacy Rule does not prohibit the collection of COVID-19 vaccination informa Per D.C. health guidelines, masks are optional in the Partnership’s offices. Anyone is welcome to mask or double mask at any time. There should be no value judgment placed on the choice to wear a mask. Procedures If a Guest is Diagnosed with COVID-19 If a participant or guest is diagnosed with COVID-19 within 5 days before a Partnership program or activity, the participant must immediately notify the Partnership’s point of contact. Upon notification, the event or program coordinator will verify with the participant/guest when they first tested positive and how long they have been quarantining. If the participant/guest is symptomatic, they should not attend the session in person. If the participant is no longer symptomatic, they are required to show proof of a negative tests taken within 72 hours of the event in order to attend the event in person. If a participant or guest is diagnosed with COVID-19 during or within 5 days following a Partnership program or activity, the participant must immediately notify the Partnership’s point of contact. Upon notification, the event or program coordinator will inform the Partnership’s Operations team that a participant has tested positive. The Partnership’s VP for HR or designee will speak directly with the participant/guest to identify who they interacted closely with during the session. For cohort-based programs, the Partnership considers the entire cohort to be close contact given the nature and proximity of cohort-based activities. The Partnership will communicate directly with others who have been identified as being in close contact that they may have been exposed and will encourage them to be tested. Throughout the entire communication process, the name of the individual who tested positive will remain confidential. Federal employees should also follow their agencies’ COVID-19 guidance.
