*“This event is open to all invitees regardless of vaccination status and, because of ongoing health risks to the unvaccinated, those who are unvaccinated are expected to adopt the risk mitigation measures advised by public health officials (masking and social distancing, etc.).  Public convening may not be safe for all and carries a risk for contracting COVID-19, particularly for those unvaccinated.  Participants will not know the vaccination status of others, including venue staff, and should follow appropriate risk mitigation measures.”
