The VaBHMA COVID Safety Protocols

Our goal during the gala is to keep every guest safe during their time celebrating with us. Therefore, we have instituted various COVID Safety Protocols to ensure our gala is free from the Coronavirus. Any individual displaying COVID-like symptoms, answering yes to any of the COVID questions, or not providing proof of vaccination will not be allowed into the ballroom area.

These COVID Safety Protocols will be reviewed prior to the event and just before entering the ballroom area. The answers to your COVID Safety Protocols will be listed on your ticket during the ticket purchase process. Anyone failing to meet the COVID Safety Protocol requirements (after) their ticket is purchased will be asked to eat in their hotel room, given credit towards the 2023 gala, or on a case-by-case basis be given a full refund.

The COVID Protocols are as follows:

  1. All guests must show proof of vaccination prior to entering the ballroom area.
  2. All guests are encouraged to wear a mask when not eating or drinking.
  3. All guests must answer the six (6) CDC COVID questions.
