Coronavirus Protocols: Pre-Event COVID-19 Symptom Self-Screening
Due to the community spread of COVID-19 in California, Almond Alliance of California (Almond Alliance) has been taking, and we continue to take additional steps to provide safe and healthy events for our members and invited guests. In accordance with the applicable guidelines issued by the CDC, OSHA, California Department of Public Health, and other governing agencies, we are implementing this Pre-meeting COVID-19 Symptom Screening policy prior to all Almond Alliance events.
All attendees are encouraged to complete the self-screening checklist every day before they enter the Almond Alliance event space. If you have any symptoms that you cannot attribute to a health condition other than COVID-19, Almond Alliance requests you refrain from participating in the event. Copies of this self-test will be available at the Convention.
Please note that to have a reservation in the group room block, you must register for the Almond Alliance Annual Convention. Almond Alliance reserves the right to review the convention room block and remove those individuals who have not registered for the conference. The hotel reservation should be made under the corresponding registered delegate’s name to avoid confusion.
Hotel Deposit Policy:
Please be advised we are requiring a 100%, Non-Refundable deposit for all guest room reservations. This deposit will be taken by the hotel at the time of your room booking. No refunds will be given if the reservation is cancelled at any time. While we acknowledge this reservation policy is strict, please understand that in the past the Almond Alliance of California has been charged for all cancelled guest rooms. Your support in these efforts is truly appreciated.
Badges will always be required for entry into Convention. Badges are not transferable and those worn by someone other than the person to whom issued, will be confiscated.
