COVID-19 Event Policy

Equality California requires all staff and guests attending in-person events produced by the organization to be up to date on their COVID-19 vaccination status, which includes a booster dose (or doses) if eligible. In general, people are considered up to date on their vaccination status if it has been at least 14 days since the person received:

  • The last dose of an approved vaccine, as recommended by the vaccine’s manufacturer (e.g., the second dose of a Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech 2-dose vaccine or the first dose of Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen 1-dose vaccine); and
  • A booster dose (or doses), if eligible, in accordance with the schedule recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which can be found here.

Proof of an up-to-date vaccination status (a physical vaccine card, a clear photo of the card, or a verified digital vaccine record) will be required for entrance to any Equality California event, along with a picture ID. Those who are not up to date on their COVID-19 vaccination status will not be admitted to Equality California events unless they have a religious or medical accommodation and alert the events team at events@eqca.org in advance of the event (and then provide a negative COVID-19 test from within 72 hours before the event upon entry).

Additionally, Equality California encourages attendees to wear masks when not eating or drinking or when six feet of social distance cannot be maintained.

Equality California will work with our venues and vendors to follow all state and local COVID-19 guidelines to ensure the safety of our staff and guests. Benefits at all levels may change if/as event guidelines change (i.e capacity caps or vaccination requirements).

As the COVID-19 public health emergency is an ever-evolving situation, Equality California reserves the right to add, adjust and institute further attendance requirements as deemed necessary at any time. Equality California will communicate any material changes to our policy as we continue to monitor the CDC, state and local guidelines.

By attending the event, you acknowledge that Equality California expects all participants at Equality California events to comply with CDC, state and local COVID-related guidelines, rules and requirements, which continue to evolve, that you are attending at your own risk and that you release Equality California, its officers, directors, agents, employees and assigns from any liability related to COVID-19 which might occur as a result of your attendance.

If you have questions regarding this, please contact events@eqca.org ahead of the event.
