Due to the United States ending the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency on May 11th, 2023 the IJA will not be requiring proof of vaccination or negative test to attend any IJA event, and all IJA events will remain Mask Friendly. We are encouraging those who are able to get vaccinated against COVID-19 to do so.
Please do not attend the festival if you are not feeling well in any capacity, are exhibiting any COVID-19 symptoms, have tested positive for COVID-19, or have recently been directly exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. If you are already at the festival and become ill in anyway, please do not continue to participate in IJA events.
If you have tested positive for COVID-19 recently, do not attend the festival until 5 days have passed with Day 0 as your first day of symptoms or a positive viral test. Day 1 is the first full day after your symptoms developed or your test specimen was collected. This follows the CDC Guidelines for testing positive for COVID-19.
We know that health is vital to our community and we want to take this moment to acknowledge that times are changing rapidly. The IJA Festival would not exist without our outstanding members and we want them to be as safe and healthy as possible.
If someone is not feeling well or can no longer attend the IJA Festival please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to carry your festival package forward or for a refund. (Must be submitted by July 16th, 2023.)
