Covid-19 Community Care Policy

Afros & Audio Podcast Festival COVID-19 Community Care Policy

The  4th annual Afros & Audio Podcast Festival will convene nationally online and in-person in Philadelphia, PA.

As part of our safety precautions to limit the spread of COVID-19, we are asking people to honor the community care protocols we put in place for this year's conference. 

We acknowledge the inherent risk in gatherings of any size. Unfortunately, there is no perfect protocol. To do our best to mitigate harm, we are asking in-person attendees to follow our COVID-19 Community Care Policy. 

WEAR A MASK 

We Strongly encourage that all in-person participants who are able to wear an N95 or KN95 mask regardless of vaccination status do so. We will have a limited number of masks available for attendees.

PLEASE CONSIDER YOUR VACCINATION STATUS 

We know a COVID vaccination is a personal choice. If you have not been vaccinated please consider attending our virtual event to reduce your chances of catching COVID. 

Afros & Audio staff and organizers will not require participants to show proof of vaccination for entry into The event:

Afros & Audio will work with all conference venues to ensure facilities are cleaned and disinfected daily using scent-free resources. We’ll provide limited masks and sanitizer in our gathering spaces. We also ask that participants regularly wash their hands and change their face masks to ensure the best protection.

Afros & Audio works hard to create the safest and most accessible spaces we can. IF YOU OR SOMEONE YOU HAVE SHARED SPACE WITH HAS HAD COVID WITHIN THE LAST 14 DAYS OR IF YOU HAVE *ANY* COLD SYMPTOMS, PLEASE, OPT OUT OF ATTENDING.
