COVID-19 Policy

FSP-SEC-201P — Revised 18 Nov 2022

Section 1: Facts & Definitions

1.0.0 Facts

During any pandemic or epidemic, transmission rates of any disease rise in any public place where people are present. This is especially the case when the disease is transmissible through the air by inhaling particles or microdroplets transporting the disease. Depending on the nature of the disease, exposure could lead to personal injury, severe illness, and death. By attending Furcationland, you voluntarily assume all risks of exposure to infectious diseases. All visitors must follow all Furcationland health and safety protocols.

Based on guidance from the CDC, FDA, and other health authorities, or by approval of the Furcationland board of directors, this policy may be amended to include attendees not currently covered. Furthermore, the definition of “up to date” per CDC guidelines may be amended to include additional booster or follow-up doses.

If you have symptoms of or are sick with any infectious disease, or simply feel unwell, please stay home.

1.1.0 Definitions

Up to date” means you have completed a COVID-19 vaccine primary series and received the most recent booster dose recommended for you by the CDC.

A “primary series” is the base course of vaccines. In most cases, this is 2 doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, 2 doses of the Moderna vaccine, or 1 dose of the Johnson & Johnson Janssen’s vaccine. For more information, please consult the COVID-19 Vaccine FAQ and your healthcare provider.
