At Faces & Voices of Recovery we take safety very seriously. We are prepared to celebrate the 20th Anniversary Summit in October. The COVID-19 Delta and Lambda variants are influencing how that celebration will take place. We are closely monitoring guidelines and restrictions and will make decisions as the situation unfolds. Unless restrictions prohibit us from gathering, we plan on hosting the conference in-person. We understand some people may be hesitant to attend, due to safety concerns.

If necessary, we will deliver a webinar-based, hybrid option to accommodate more people, so that we can still be together as a community for this important milestone. In addition, the RiverCentre has taken a number of precautions to ensure your safety.

Here are the three possible scenarios upon which we're basing our decision:

    • Scenario A: All is well, Nationwide positivity of <5%
      No mandates or city-wide orders in place regarding COVID
      Summit takes place as scheduled
      Proof of vaccine/negative test results/mask required (with audit during event)
      Keynote events streamed
    • Scenario B: Moderate concern surrounding transmission, Nationwide positivity of 5-12%
      No mandates or city-wide orders in place regarding COVID
      Summit takes place as scheduled
      Proof of vaccine/negative test results/mask required (with audit during event)
      Social distancing rules enforced
      Hybrid conference format with streaming of each session
    • Scenario C: All is not well, Nationwide positivity of >12%
      Mandates or city-wide orders are in place regarding COVID
      Summit takes place entirely in virtual space

The current national positivity rate according to the Center for Disease Control is 9.81%. Therefore, if we were to decide today based on these results, we would fall into Scenario B.

September 1st will serve as our decision date. We will update you as the decision date draws nearer. We appreciate your continued patience and understanding during this time.
