Wyoming Climate Summit COVID-19 Protocols

While we are incredibly excited to host this year’s Wyoming Climate Summit in person at the Lander Community Center, we are also very aware of the fact that COVID-19 is still here. Our community is living with the presence of this virus, and our following event protocols and precautions reflect our commitment to public health and safety

Below is a list of precautions that we are asking summit attendees to take. For those not able to attend, for health or other reasons, we will be recording the day’s events and will make these available online following the event. 

  • If you are displaying any symptoms of COVID-19 including: fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, and/or diarrhea, please take a COVID-19 test before attending the summit. If you test positive, stay home and follow CDC guidelines.
  • If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms and have tested negative for COVID-19, please wear a mask while attending the summit.
  • Follow all posted protocols and guidelines regarding distancing, eating, and drinking while at the summit. 
  • Be prepared to wear a mask if requested in any situation where you may be in close contact with others. We will make sure masks are available.
  • Practice good personal hygiene, including washing hands regularly with soap and water, using hand sanitizer when hand washing is not available, and covering your nose and mouth when you sneeze or cough.
  • Be considerate of others’ personal space by maintaining physical distance when possible and always when asked.

We thank you in advance for adhering to these basic principles and can’t wait to host you here! Our planning committee will continue monitoring local conditions and update this list as appropriate.
