    Onsite COVID Precautions

    NRHA’s 33rd NRHA Rural Health Policy Institute will take place in-person at the Hilton Washington DC National Mall at the Wharf in Washington, D.C.

    All registrants and NRHA staff are required to be fully vaccinated by Jan. 24, 2022. NRHA is following the Center for Disease Control and Prevention definition of full vaccination available here.

    All registrants will also be required to wear a mask covering the mouth and nose, except when eating or drinking, while in public spaces for the conference.

    DC Health has created guidance based on risk level and the use of layer mitigation strategies, primarily tied to a person’s vaccination status. The D.C. Mayor lifted the indoor mask mandate in most public places effective Nov. 22, 2021. The Hilton National Mall still recommends all guests wear face masks in public spaces except when actively eating and drinking.

    Additionally, there are hand sanitizer stations throughout the public space, and all hotel staff members wear masks at all times. NRHA will inform conference participants about local testing capabilities should it be necessary during the event.

    NRHA will follow onsite protocols, working closely with Hilton National Mall and local public health officials. We will monitor for developments and adjust our conference protocol as needed.
