CFFNM Safe Event Policy
Keeping everyone in our community safe and healthy remains a top priority at CFFNM so we have created a Safe Event Policy, based on the latest news and guidelines from health experts. Face masks will be required while inside the Convention Center except when in the process of eating and drinking. A valid photo ID and proof of full COVID vaccination and booster, or negative 3rd party verified COVID test with name and date done 1 day prior to the event, will be required for each attendee and verified by security prior to entering the Convention Center. In addition to attendees, we will be requiring this proof from all staff, vendors and volunteers.
