COVID-19 Response and Protocols

Updated March 10, 2022

Regarding COVID-19, NAMA will follow all health and safety guidelines and recommendations promulgated by federal, state, and local government agencies and officials and the event venue. Attendees of The NAMA Show are required to do the same. Please view our COVID-19 Safety Release and Waiver here.

As you may know, The State of Illinois and the City of Chicago have recently removed mask and vaccination requirements for most public indoor spaces. Considering these developments, NAMA has decided not to require masks or vaccines for individuals to attend The NAMA Show in 2022. However, individuals should feel free to wear a mask at their own discretion and we encourage those with underlying medical conditions who may be at increased risk from severe illness due to COVID-19 to exercise enhanced safety measures and take adequate precautions.

Attendees may not attend The NAMA Show if they: 1) have experienced symptoms associated with COVID-19 in the past 14 days; 2) may have been exposed to a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19; or 3) have been diagnosed with COVID-19 and are not yet cleared by state or local public health authority as non-contagious. In addition, attendees must notify NAMA if they experience symptoms associated with COVID-19 within 14 days after participating in The NAMA Show.

NAMA has selected McCormick Place as the event venue in part because of its commitment to hosting meetings safely. McCormick Place has also committed to your safety by achieving the Global Biorisk Advisory Council® (GBAC) STAR™ accreditation on outbreak prevention, response and recovery.
