M3AAWG 55th General Meeting Hotel Information
ATTENTION-Vaccination and Masking
M3AAWG continues to make the health and safety of our meeting attendees our top priority. Our goal is to hold a safe meeting, recognizing it is not possible to remove all risks, in particular concerning COVID-19.
All London in-person meeting attendees must be fully vaccinated per https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/stay-up-to-date.html#... Attendees are required to provide proof of vaccination against COVID-19 along with a government issued identification card, with a photo and same name as your vaccination verification.
M3AAWG will evaluate the COVID situation and consult local public health recommendations in London closer to the meeting date and evaluate masking. Out of respect for our members, all attendees should proactively plan to mask while in the meeting space when planning to attend.
Health and Safety Requirements for each meeting will be set according to government and public health recommendations, applicable at the time of the event, and what M3AAWG deems necessary to manage the risk for its in-person meeting attendees. M3AAWG may change, update, or add to these requirements at any time as it deems prudent to best protect the health and safety of attendees and others, and attendees must comply with relevant policies and requirements as communicated by M3AAWG.
Updates will be posted on the Upcoming Meetings page and sent to members via email.
