COVID-19 Response and Procedures

As COVID-19 continues to evolve and produce variants that impact our community, the World Affairs Council is monitoring and reacting to the latest information. We remain flexible, and our precautions may be fluid. We will be implementing health and safety measures as suggested by the CDC, such as providing masks and encouraging social distancing, to reduce the spread of disease.

The risk of exposure to COVID-19 remains inherent in any public setting. It is important to acknowledge that COVID-19 is highly contagious and can lead to severe illness or death. Thus, by attending World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth events, guests voluntarily assume the risks related to exposure to COVID–19 and will indemnify and hold harmless the World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth, its staff and Board of Directors, volunteers, and other related parties.

With that in mind, we are establishing the following precautions:

Proof of vaccination will NO longer be required to attend in person event. Though not required, we strongly suggest receiving the vaccine and booster.

Masks and sanitizer will be available at the registration table for guests. Masks are no longer required. 

Most importantly, if you feel sick or have concern that you’ve been exposed to COVID-19, please stay home and prevent risk of further spread.

Should an in-person speaker event face cancellation, we will shift to a virtual presentation as we are able, and registration fees will be refunded. This will not apply to fundraising events.

We hope you will take time to be aware of current CDC guidelines and regional regulations and conditions related to COVID-19 as you consider attending any events. You can find up-to-date information at the following links:

Q: Do I need to be vaccinated to attend WACDFW events in person?

A: No, proof of vaccination is no longer required to attend events in person.

Q: Will I need to wear a mask when I attend an in-person event?

A: Masks will be provided but are no longer required during in-person events based on guidance from the CDC. As COVID-19 continues to evolve and produce variants that have impact in our community, we will be implementing health and safety measures, such as providing masks and encouraging social distancing, to reduce the spread of disease.

Q: What measures will WACDFW take to prevent spread of COVID-19 at in-person events?

A: We will continue to monitor CDC guidelines moving forward. We will provide masks and sanitation at registration and implement any guidelines suggested by the CDC. 

Q: If an in-person event is cancelled, will my registration be refunded?

A: Should an in-person speaker event face cancellation, we will shift to a virtual presentation as we are able, and refunds will be administered to registrants. This will not apply to fundraising events.
