Health & Safety Plan For SALT 2021
Updated September 15, 2021
SALT Conference is its best when SALT is a Community. And communities need connection. Which is why we’re excited to gather in-person at SALT 2021. However, we want to do it in a manner that doesn’t put your community, your church, or yourself at risk.
We recently announced, for the first time ever in SALT history, that we will be offering a stream pass to accompany the in-person experience. For those who do not feel safe coming to SALT 2021, we encourage you to purchase the Stream Pass.
For those who are planning, or interested, in attending SALT 2021 as we initially designed it to be, as an in-person conference, this page outlines a few of the details and plans we have to help protect you and enforce a safe conference experience for all. Please check this page in the days prior to our gathering in Nashville as we will use this as our primary communication portal for all things Health & Safety.
Thank you in advance for helping to keep our community safe and healthy. We are committed to a great SALT Conference and look forward to seeing you in person in Nashville soon.
- Masks Will Be Required
SALT 2021 will require masks to be worn by ALL attendees, guests, staff, sponsors, and speakers while indoors for the duration of the conference. This pertains to those vaccinated and unvaccinated.
While outdoors, or during lunch, you will be allowed to take your mask off and enjoy connecting with this community. Our team will be happy to supply you a mask if you do not have one, but will require you to wear one. Speakers will not be required to we are a mask while presenting, speaking, or participating in a panel discussion.
- Test or Vaccine Proof
At this time, SALT 2021 will not require a proof of vaccination or negative covid-19 test in order to check-in. However, we are staying connected to the local area health departments, watching the statistics daily, and communicating regularly with our host church and will let all registered attendee’s know if there is a change in this policy.
- Social Distancing Plan
Our team has made the following changes to accommodate additional space for those who wish to socially distance themselves in protection against airborne viruses:
- We have added an additional workshop session to provide more available seats during each workshop time slot.
- We are allowing for a “standing room only” area in the back of each workshop to allow space for those who wish to socially distant themselves.
- We will not require, or request, people move closer together in main sessions to allow attendees to space themselves apart from others.
- We will add a significant amount of additional seating in the meal rooms and main session rooms to accommodate social distancing
- We will not require attendance to community groups, where we serve lunch, if an attendee wishes to enjoy their lunch outside instead of at a table with other attendees.
- Symptom Screening
If you are not feeling well, please stay at home. Our team would be happy to transfer your registration to a stream pass if you happen to be exposed to someone with Covid-19, you test positive for Covid-19, or you come down with symptoms of Covid-19 within 14-days prior to the start of conference.
