As the world slowly starts to return to a sense of normal, the USEA is ecstatic to return to an in-person USEA Annual Meeting & Convention this December 9-12 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. That being said, the safety of our members is our top priority. We wanted to take a moment to share current COVID-19 protocols in Albuquerque and at the Hyatt Regency Albuquerque Hotel, the location of the 2021 Convention.

USEA Recommendations

The USEA strongly recommends that all attendees wear a mask regardless of vaccination status and practice social distancing. If you are or any of your immediate family members are positive for COVID-19 at the time of Convention, have shown symptoms of or have been recently exposed to COVID-19, we ask that you remain home and tune in to one of the many livestream sessions which will be made available. The USEA is also recommending that all attendees be vaccinated for COVID-19 if they are able to be.

Current Regulations in Albuquerque, New Mexico

At this point in time, regulations in Albuquerque include a mask mandate for indoor public settings, regardless of an individual’s vaccination status, through at least November 12. The USEA is closely monitoring local regulations and Convention attendees will be required to follow all local government regulations.
