Health and Safety Guidelines

CASE is committed to creating an event experience where we can gather together in a safe and healthy environment. Our goal is to provide the necessary measures to ensure that each participant’s well-being is our top priority.

An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place regardless of precautions that may be taken.

CASE Regional Event Attendee agrees to (1) assume all risks associated with potential exposure to COVID-19; and (2) comply with current health and safety policies as stated by the CDC and local venues: California Science Center.

Masks are required at the California Science Center even if you have been vaccinated for COVID-19. Guidelines at each location are subject to change.
