COVID-19 Readiness: Safety Guidelines for the 14th Annual CCEC Forum

CCEC Forum COVID Guidelines

The California Climate and Energy Collaborative is committed to preventing the spread of COVID-19. For the safety of all guests, we will be following all applicable state, county, and federal guidelines. In addition, shortly before the forum, attendees will be required to attest to either being vaccinated against COVID-19 or agree to provide a negative COVID-19 test taken within the 48 hours before the forum at the registration desk, as well as the following:

  1. I am not experiencing any symptoms of illness such as a fever, cough, or shortness of breath. If I develop these symptoms, I agree that I will leave the event premises immediately. I am aware that I must follow the safety and hygiene protocols of the event organizer.
  2. I have not been exposed to a person with a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19 in the past 14 days.
  3. I will follow California Department of Public Health SMARTER guidelines as much as possible, limiting my exposure to the coronavirus. 

Forum organizers will have masks available at the registration desk as well as a limited number of rapid tests if needed.

Finally, CCEC asks all participants to adhere to the following safety practices:

  • Be a good neighbor. When outside the venue, we ask that attendees take the necessary precautions to ensure they limit their exposure to COVID-19. This includes, but is not limited to: wearing a mask while indoors, social distancing, avoiding crowds, and enjoying meals outdoors.
  • Sanitize. Hand sanitizer will be provided at the registration desk, throughout the forum venue, and during meals.
  • Protect your peers. If you have COVID symptoms while at the meeting, please remove yourself from the Forum event spaces, isolate, and get tested. Notify event staff at if you are symptomatic, or if you test positive. We will share information about a positive test with attendees, but will maintain your anonymity.

We reserve the right to adjust these guidelines as needed.
