Information for Imaging USA Attendees: Know Before You GoPublished: December 27, 2021
We've all become familiar with COVID procedures; they are part of our daily lives. In fact, we've all become pretty skilled at continuing our lives while working (and playing) together safely. Nobody knows the situation better in any given community than those who live there, which is why we have maintained from the beginning that we would strictly follow local guidelines. We want you to know about the following local guidelines, some of which have changed in recent days:
The following procedures apply to Imaging USA as of now. We'll update this list if anything changes:
- Prince George's County Maryland (where Imaging USA will be held) currently has a mask mandate in effect for all inside activities. The mask can be removed while eating. During one of our many conversations with the headquarters hotel, they informed us that people there are successfully continuing with their daily activities, which include events just like ours.
- Vaccination is not a requirement for attendance at Imaging USA. You may have heard that the Mayor of Washington D.C. has issued a vaccination mandate. The Gaylord National Harbor is next door to Washington D.C. but not part of the District's vaccination mandate.
The vaccination mandate DOES NOT include the following places inside the D.C. borders:
- Places of worship
- Grocery stores
- Retail stores
- Attractions on the Mall
The vaccination mandate DOES include the following inside the D.C. borders:
- Movie Theaters
- Bowling Alleys
In addition to the guidelines listed above, PPA urges all attendees to be responsible and make sure they receive a negative COVID test no more than three days prior to the event. While that seems like an obvious first step before an out-of-town event, we think it is worth mentioning. As a community of friends working together, we can protect each other while at Imaging USA, as well as our loved ones when we return home.
“We're going to have a great Imaging USA! As worldwide citizens, we have spent 18 months learning how to do this safely. We all understand what it means to live with COVID. It is a fact of life, and we all know how to do this. We ask that all attendees follow all CDC and local guidelines.” - PPA CEO David Trust
