When do I have to wear a mask? Masks must be worn while indoors at APTA events when not eating or drinking. Speakers may remove their masks while speaking but will be required to remain at least 6’ from the audience and put the mask back on upon leaving the podium.
Why do I have to wear a mask if I have a negative test result? The CDC recommends all individuals over 2 years of age wear a mask indoors in public to “maximize protection from the Delta variant and prevent possibly spreading it to others.” We are following this guideline strictly for the health and safety of our participants.
Note: APTA staff should not feel compelled to enforce the mask requirement in a confrontational situation. If necessary, security staff will be available to assist.
