The 2022 Colorado Emergency Management Conference will require a daily COVID-19 rapid test for all individuals who choose not to share or cannot provide documentation of vaccine status with a vaccine card.  Everyone will show their vaccine card or provide a copy at the time of conference check-in and their ID will be discreetly marked accordingly.  Full vaccination is two doses of Pfizer or Moderna and one dose of Johnson & Johnson.  Vaccine documentation can be provided by showing the card, a photo of your card or the info on the MyColorado app. Individuals who do not share full vaccination documentation are required to complete a daily rapid test before entering the conference area.  

All attendees must wear a face mask while in the conference area and will be required to follow all Larimer County Public Health orders.  Each day conference participants will show their event ID to enter the conference area.   If your ID indicates that a COVID-19 rapid test is required to participate, a test will be provided.  All participants will receive a daily attendance bracelet after passing through the check-in location or after their negative test results are provided.  Please arrive early if a test is required.


If you have any symptoms of COVID-19 please do not attend.
