In the abundance of caution, the Association of African American Museums (AAAM) has created the following guidance from state and local health departments and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding large gatherings. This includes following CDC recommendations on preventing the spread of COVID-19 (many of these protocols have been adopted by several other professional associates, to include our colleagues at AASLH).

AAAM is taking these measures to assure the 2022 Annual Meeting is as safe as possible:

  • All attendees must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 AND provide negative test results within 72 hours of August 10, 2022. Vaccination is the most effective way to protect yourself and fellow attendees. We ask unvaccinated individuals to protect themselves and reduce the risk to others by not attending this conference.
  • All attendees are required to wear a face mask throughout the conference. This includes while on buses to and from evening events and tours and during the evening events and tours, unless actively eating or drinking.
  • All AAAM staff and conference volunteers participating in the meeting will be fully vaccinated.
  • If you have a positive test, we ask that you reduce the risk to others and plan to attend the virtual conference only.
