Click here to download this document as a PDF

The health and safety of all attendees to AVCU 75 remains our top priority. We are closely monitoring changes to government mandates, policies, and local and venue guidelines, along with public health announcements. As information pertaining to the virus continues to develop, we will adjust our approach as needed and keep you up to date with new developments to ensure a coordinated effort and a safe environment for all AVCU 75 attendees.

COVID-19 Vaccinations

The Vermont Department of Health does not require proof of vaccination to enter public indoor locations. Additionally, they do not require face masks. AVCU 75 strongly recommends that attendees are fully vaccinated and wear masks in public spaces and meeting rooms when indoors, but these are not required as a condition of attendance.

AVCU 75 will continue to follow local and venue requirements. As information pertaining to COVID-19 requirements is ever evolving, we will continue to update as needed based on state, local, and Jay Peak Resort requirements. Before arriving at AVCU 75, please familiarize yourself and your guest(s) with Jay Peak Resort’s EverClean Program as explained on their website.

Face-Coverings

In Vermont, local authorities no longer require anyone to wear a face mask while in public indoor settings. Masks are strongly encouraged, especially if you are unvaccinated, but they are not required.

Hand Sanitizer Stations

As part of its EverClean Program, Jay Peak Resort will have hand washing facilities and/or sanitizing systems easily accessible to everyone throughout the event.

Spacing Measures

Social distancing practices will be implemented when possible, according to all venue, local and state guidelines.

Health and Safety Signage

Signage will be placed to remind all attendees to social distance and frequently wash and sanitize their hands. Face coverings are strongly encouraged.

Safety Measures at Jay Peak Resort

The Resort has put in place a multi-pronged approach designed to meet the health and safety challenges presented by COVID-19 as outlined in its EverClean Program.

The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic and is very contagious. COVID-19 can cause serious and potentially life-threatening illness and even death.

Assumption of Risk - I have read and understand the above warning concerning COVID-19. I acknowledge that attending AVCU 75 is of value to me and that I accept the risk of being exposed to COVID-19 in order to attend. Therefore, I choose to accept the risk of exposure to COVID-19 and I agree that I am personally responsible for my safety and actions while attending AVCU 75.

Indemnification - I agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless the Released Parties from and against any and all costs, expenses, damages, claims, lawsuits, judgments, losses, and/or liabilities (including attorney fees) arising either directly or indirectly from or related to any and all claims made by or against any of the Released Parties due to bodily injury, death, loss of use, monetary loss, or any other injury from or related to my attendance at AVCU 75 specifically related to COVID-19.

Association of Vermont Credit Unions remains committed to implementing conscious and intentional measures to not only combat COVID-19, but to promote healthy best practices that will become the protocol for all in-person events during high- and low-risk time periods alike.

Please continuously check back to this webpage as Association of Vermont Credit Unions may continue to revise our AVCU 75 policies to better reflect the current state of pandemic and/or endemic public health guidelines and procedures.
