COVID-19 Protocols for the 31st Annual APPE International Conference
The Association for Practical and Professional Ethics places the highest priority on the safety of all conference participants, the community we will visit, and the communities in which our participants live. As a group that encourages people to be ethically-minded and thoughtful, it is a basic expectation of the APPE Annual International Conference that participants act in APPE’s standard considerate, respectful manner during all events and this includes showing a regard for the safety of one’s fellow participants. Given this, APPE will require that conference participants comply with all CDC COVID-19 safety protocols in place at the time our conference is held. We expect participants to engage in behavior that will best ensure the safety of others, including physical distancing and mask wearing, even if vaccinated, whenever possible.

It is our expectation that attendees will be fully vaccinated by the time of the conference unless advised otherwise by their physician. Those unable to be vaccinated must test negative for coronavirus within 48 hours prior to their arrival at the conference.

If a participant is unable or unwilling to comply with Covid-19 prevention protocols, we encourage you to attend virtually.
