AFS and the WFC 13 Organizing Committee are carefully monitoring the COVID situation.   We are monitoring recommendations and guidelines from the CDC and WHO, as well as the city of San Diego and the state of California.  

Measurements for protecting our congress attendees

If you do not feel well or have had immediate exposure to COVID-19, do not come to the Congress. If you are showing any signs of illness, including, but not limited to fever, coughing, or sore throat, do not come to the Congress.

We will have color-coded lanyards for name badges to indicate your level of comfort with personal contact. 

  • Green - comfortable with personal contact
  • Yellow - comfortable with elbow contact
  • Red - not comfortable with any level of physical contact

We are maximizing the seating in the meeting rooms to allow space for social distancing for those who prefer it.  We ask that you not sit right next to a person with a yellow or red lanyard.

Hand-sanitizing stations are located throughout the hotel. Facemasks are optional.
