COVID-19 Pandemic Mask and Vaccination Policies

The Obesity Society follows all federal, state, local, and facility regulations, including rules around COVID-19 vaccination and mask-wearing.

COVID-19 Regulations as of September 1, 2022:

There are no social/physical distancing requirements, mask requirements, or vaccination requirements in the convention center building, nor in the city of San Diego at this time, though individuals are strongly encouraged to be up-to-date on vaccination and wear masks.

ObesityWeek will provide a choice of lanyards to communicate the individual’s level of social distance comfort – red for full social distancing (wave to me from 6 feet away), green for no social distancing necessary (handshakes and hugs), and yellow for those somewhere in between (fist bumps, high fives). ObesityWeek will not require masks or proof of vaccination unless there is a change in the law.
