COVID-19 Health
& Safety Protocols

The Florida Democratic Party will be implementing strict COVID-19 protocols to ensure the health and safety of all attendees, supporters, speakers, staff, and vendors at the Leadership Blue 2021 weekend. These protocols are intended to help mitigate the risk of COVID-19 spread and should be followed at all times during the weekend.

  • All attendees will be required to show a negative PCR Test obtained no more than 72 hours prior to entering the event. In lieu of negative PCR tests, attendees may show proof of vaccination.
    • Negative PCR tests or proof of vaccination may be presented in print or digital form.
  • Masks are required at all times for all attendees, supporters, speakers, staff, and vendors regardless of vaccination status in all indoor spaces, except while eating and drinking in authorized areas or speaking to an audience from at least six feet away. Attendees are required to supply their own mask. The Florida Democratic Party will have limited masks available in the event of emergency and masks may be available for purchase at the Rosen Plaza. Nevertheless, any attendees who fail to comply with the mask requirements may be asked to leave.
  • Social distancing measures will be implemented wherever practicable.
  • Hand sanitizer will be readily available.
  • Meeting rooms will be regularly cleaned and sanitized.
  • By attending any Leadership Blue event, meeting, or training, you are affirming and attesting that:
    • You do not have a COVID-19 infection and are currently not experiencing or displaying, and have not in the last 14 days experienced or displayed, any of the symptoms consistent with COVID-19 (e.g. fever, respiratory symptoms, shortness of breath, etc.);
    • You have not in the last 14 days had any close direct contact with anyone who is either confirmed or suspected of having COVID-19, including anyone who was experiencing or displaying any of the known symptoms of COVID-19.
  • If you or anyone you are traveling with cannot affirm or attest to the above, we kindly ask that you refrain from entering the premises.

A risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe health consequences. By attending the Leadership Blue 2021 weekend, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation as we work together to maintain a safe environment.
