COVID Waiver for Events

Leadership Institute 2021 Health and Safety Preparedness Plan
Creating a safe and healthy Leadership Institute 2021 experience is our top priority.

ABC’s goal is to ensure all individuals on site—attendees, speakers, staff and venue personnel—remain healthy, safe and comfortable throughout the event.

We are monitoring area COVID-19 status and working in partnership with the team at the JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort & Spa and local authorities. Please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for recommendations on how to protect yourself against COVID-19 and review the current health and safety protocols in Miami, Florida.

1. On-site medical protocols

  • •  Temperature checks each day before entering the event. Attendees will receive a different color wristband every day to confirm they have been cleared to participate.
  • •  Attendees must sign a  Personal Accountability and Responsibility Document to confirm that they do not have symptoms of COVID-19 and accept the risk of attending an in-person event.
  • •  COVID-19 Health Security Plan (see ABC Events app).

2. Name badges will be picked up after successfully completing a temperature check.

3. Masks use
