Your Safety Is Our Priority
It’s less than one week away! Our PA Chamber staff is finalizing preparations and excited to greet our guests at the 37th Annual Chamber Dinner on Monday, October 4.
Leading up to the event, we want to offer guests the peace of mind that we’re keeping their health a top priority. That’s why we’re happy to be partnering with Epistemix – a research firm that specializes in analyzing disease and population data – to ensure that our organization is making informed decisions about the protocols we’ll have in place that evening.
After a thorough analysis of factors including the size of the event venue; the spaces that will be occupied; the number of attendees; up-to-date information on regional vaccination rates; and the protocols the PA Chamber is recommending which are proven to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and other airborne illnesses, Epistemix’s modeling has projected a very low risk of transmission. This has helped us proceed with confidence that we are supporting a healthy environment for those who attend our Annual Dinner.
Here’s what else we’re doing to ensure guest safety:
Reducing in-person capacity to approximately 50 percent of our usual dinner audience
Providing more spacing between tables and allowing fewer guests at non-cohort tables
Offering a virtual option for guests who prefer to view the program at home
Following CDC recommendations for hosting large, indoor events
Recommending in-person guests be vaccinated, be COVID-19 negative and/or wear a mask
Added together, these measures should provide a reduced risk in an environment that is just as safe as heading to your local retail store.
Thank you for your cooperation as we prepare to host a memorable and enjoyable, evening for Pennsylvania’s business community.
We look forward to seeing you there!
