Stay COVID-safe with ACGA
ACGA is committed to reducing the risk of Covid at our conference.
We urge everyone attending or presenting to be fully vaccinated and boosted. In addition, everyone should have a negative COVID test 24 hours prior to arrival, since even vaccinated people can have an active asymptomatic infection that may endanger others. If you are not feeling well, please stay home and do not attend the conference.
We suggest that all attendees and presenters follow the New Orleans Health Department Guidelines while visiting New Orleans, both at the conference and when enjoying local attractions.
Although Health Department guidelines now make masks optional in many settings, we encourage people to mask, and may require it in some situations. Masking is one of the best ways to protect our fellow gardeners who may be more at risk, including those with compromised immune systems and senior citizens.
Thank you for sharing ACGA’s commitment to inclusion, science-based public health recommendations, and truly making our conference welcoming and safe for everyone.
