COVID-19 Policies


COVID-19 Policies

This page was last updated on June 7th, 2022.

All policies are subject to changes and additions as TCG continues to monitor the impact of COVID-19 and its variants. We welcome your questions or feedback about these policies via email at

Vaccination Policy

Proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 is required for all attendees, speakers, staff, and volunteers on-site at the Conference. 

Mask and Testing Policy

All attendees, staff, and volunteers are required to wear a mask at all times while attending any indoor activities as part of the Conference. Exceptions will be made during meal and coffee breaks, for ASL interpreters, and for Plenary Speakers who have tested negative via an antigen test the day of their session. TCG discourages cloth masks, and while some masks will be provided on-site, we encourage you to bring your own supply of N95 or KN95 masks. 

We encourage the use of home antigen tests before traveling and while on site. Should you test positive and need to quarantine at the hotel while with us for the Conference, please be prepared to cover any additional charges. The hotel will likely be able to extend the TCG group rate for an extended stay due to a COVID-related quarantine.

Cancellation Policy

We understand that the pandemic has made planning especially difficult, and that in spite of best efforts, plans may change. Please know that your registration is flexible and fully refundable, however we ask that attendees make an effort to let us know if they need to cancel no later than Thursday, June 9th, whenever possible. Attendees who no-show without notice will not be eligible for any refunds. Attendees may switch their in-person registration to a virtual registration at any point without financial penalty; similarly, attendees are welcomed to switch their virtual registration to an in-person registration at any point prior to June 9th. If you are no longer able to attend the Conference, or would like to adjust your registration, please notify us at
