COVID-19 Safety Guidelines

Providing a safe environment for hiring conference attendees is our top priority. We need your help to achieve this.

Attendance Requirements

Carney Sandoe has and will continue to closely monitor and incorporate CDC, state, city, and county public health and safety guidance as we plan for FORUM/Boston in Boston, MA and FORUM/West Coast in Los Angeles, CA.

Accordingly, each conference attendee must comply with the following:

  • All participants must provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination to participate in person. Participants who have received an approved vaccine exemption due to medical or religious reasons will need to notify the Director of Conferences in advance of the conference and provide documentation of their exemption. (Instructions on how to upload vaccination proof will be sent closer to each in-person conference).
  • Face coverings must be worn by everyone (regardless of vaccination status) indoors at all times unless actively eating or drinking.

Carney, Sandoe & Associates prohibits attendance for any individual who:

  • Is experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, even if symptoms are otherwise explainable (such as due to allergies). Symptoms of COVID-19 include: fever, chills, shortness of breathing, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, runny nose, etc.;
  • Has tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 14 days;
  • Is considered a close contact (under CDC guidelines) of anyone who has recently tested positive for COVID-19;
  • Has not been fully vaccinated or received an approved exemption from the vaccination requirement as an accommodation for a medical issue or sincerely held religious belief.* 

* “Fully vaccinated” means it has been at least two weeks since the person has received a dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine or two weeks since the person has received a second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine.

Safety Measures

Our plan to ensure the health and safety of all participants includes the following:

Face Coverings – Face coverings must be worn by everyone in all indoor public spaces at all times unless actively eating or drinking. This requirement applies even if you are fully vaccinated.

Comfort Badges – Carney Sandoe will provide comfort buttons/badges to be used by participants to indicate their comfort level (i.e., red – no contact, wave hello; yellow – fist or elbow bump; green – high fives and handshakes). Each attendee will receive a set of all three buttons/badges to use based on how they're feeling each day.

Cleaning and Sanitation – Each hotel hosting a Carney Sandoe hiring conference is following in-depth cleanliness and disinfection protocols to help protect the health and safety of its guests. This includes, but is not limited to, frequent cleaning and disinfection routines with an emphasis on restroom and high touch areas and deep cleaning and disinfecting between days and events.

Personal Hygiene – Hand sanitizer stations are provided near building entrances and in high-traffic areas such as meeting room corridors, lobbies and escalator/elevator landings. Basic hygiene and health protocol signage will be visible throughout the center.

Event Distancing/Crowd Management – Carney Sandoe is working closely with conference hotels to develop attendee movement plans to minimize congestion. We are also working with service partners to ensure that interview rooms are arranged to achieve added physical distance between attendees. However, we will not be monitoring behavior within the spaces and ask that attendees be mindful of their surroundings and take personal responsibility for following the guidelines.

Mutual respect and Consideration – For many, this will be one of the first large gatherings they have attended since the pandemic began. We ask that you conduct yourself in a manner that is our of respect and consideration for your fellow attendees. We also ask that you not photograph or attempt to “shame” attendees who in your opinion are non-compliant (i.e., standing closely).
