NACA® Live - Health & Safety Protocols

Your Health & Safety: A Top Priority


In preparation for the safe return of in-person events, the National Association for Campus Activities will implement the following safety measures for all 2021-22 conferences. The health and safety of NACA's event attendees, staff, and volunteers is a top priority. Based on current CDC recommendations and venue requirements, the following measures will be in place:  

Vaccination Entry Requirements

All participants will be required to show proof of full vaccination or recent negative COVID-19 PCR test to gain entry to conference activities.

  • "Full vaccination" means that either 14 days have passed since receiving the second dose of an FDA- or WHO-authorized double-dose vaccines or that 14 days have passed since receiving the sole dose of a FDA- or WHO-authorized single-dose vaccines.
  • "Recent negative COVID-19 PCR test" means the test was administered no more than 72 hours prior to attending the conference.

In order to receive conference credentials, each individual participant will be required to show at the on-site registration desk:

  • Their physical vaccination card or test result record; OR,
  • An electronic photo or digital record of their vaccination card or negative test result; OR,
  • Official government certificate of their vaccination.

We encourage you to review these FAQs and contact if you have additional questions.

Masking Requirements (Updated) 
All attendees must wear a N95, KN95, or KF94 mask during NACA conferences. Cloth masks, neck gaiters, and bandanas are not permitted.

Additional health & safety measures (Updated)

  • An N95, KN95, or KF94 face masks must be worn at all times, except when seated for catered meal functions. 
  • Cloth masks, neck gaiters, and bandanas are not permitted. 
  • Food and beverage consumption is only allowed in designated spaces, when seated.   
  • Education session presenters will be required wear masks while presenting and use the provided microphones to assist with sound amplification.  
  • On-stage showcase performers may remove their masks during their scheduled performances, but they must wear a mask during any portion of their act that closely interacts with conference attendees. 
  • Physical distancing must be observed at all times.  
  • Masks meeting this new requirement will be made available on-site during events.  
  • Attendees that do not comply with the event regulations may be asked to leave the venue. 

We will continue to monitor ongoing federal, state, and local recommendations and reserve the right to alter plans as needed. In order to assist in mitigating the spread of COVID-19, we strongly encourage attendees who are eligible to receive a COVID-19 Booster do so in addition to being vaccinated.
