COVID-19 Precautions

NRHA strongly recommends all attendees are fully vaccinated against COVID prior to attending. The CDC has identified the following symptoms of a COVID-19 infection. If you have one or more of these symptoms in the days prior to or during the event, please do not participate.

If you are waiting for COVID-19 test results or have had close contact with a person who has tested positive for or who has COVID-19 symptoms, please stay home unless you receive a negative test result before the event. Also, please report to NRHA if you test positive for COVID after the event such that you may have received and/or spread the virus at the event.

As the COVID-19 virus and its variants are highly contagious, event attendees acknowledge the risk of exposure, assume all such risk, and NRHA shall not be held liable.


Security

Unfortunately, it is becoming more common for association meetings and conventions to be targeted by third-party websites and online scams. NRHA never uses a third party booking service and registration for NRHA conferences is only possible via the online registration links found on our website.
