COVID-19 Protocols for ALL Attendees of the 2022 Pacifica Synod Assembly
Subject to change as local guidance is updated
We are committed to an event that works to keep participants safe and healthy as possible. ALL 2022 Synod Assembly attendees must provide proof of full COVID vaccination or negative test, as per Synod Council vote.
Full vaccination for this event is defined as both shots of Moderna/Pfizer vaccine or
1 shot of Johnson & Johnson, as well as any eligible boosters
(as appropriate for the individual’s age).
Persons 12 years and older are considered up-to-date with their COVID-19 vaccination if they have completed a primary series of COVID-19 vaccine and have either received a booster shot or are not yet recommended to receive a booster dose according to current CDC guidance. Those less than 12 years of age are considered up-to-date with their COVID-19 vaccinations if they have completed their primary series according to CDC guidance. (From County of Orange Health Officer’s Orders and Strong Recommendations – January 14, 2022 – Section E2.)
Synod Assembly attendees will be asked to do one of the following when registering for the assembly:
- Upload proof of vaccination (photo of vaccination card or digital COVID-19 vaccine record) - PREFERRED
- Acknowledge they will show proof of vaccination upon arrival at the Synod Assembly.
- Acknowledge they will show proof of negative test upon arrival at the Synod Assembly. Test result may be from either PCR or antigen test, but self/home tests will not be accepted.
