We encourage all visitors to review the CDC’s information about COVID-19 to ensure that proper safety precautions are being followed. Visitors and residents are encouraged to continue to observe public health recommendations, including washing your hands, refraining from touching your face, staying home if you’re sick and practicing social distancing by maintaining six feet of personal space whenever possible. For more prevention tips, please visit the CDC’s website.
The CDC also recently issued guidance to be careful with meetings and travel. Recommendations include using videoconferencing for meetings when possible and consider postponing large meetings or gathers. Read more here.
The City of Alexandria and Visit Alexandria have encouraged hotels, attractions, meeting venues, restaurants and shops to take extra precautionary steps to maintain and monitor building cleanliness and the wellness of employees and visitors. Contact your meeting venue or hotel for their specific plans and policies. Meeting planners can implement best practices such as creating handshake-free meetings and increasing cleaning protocol. Helpful information for meeting planners can be found on the PCMA and MPI websites.
