What is our Public Safety Statement for our conference?
We look forward to welcoming you to Atlanta for the 2022 NCHCMM. Our first responsibility is to you — our attendees, our exhibitors, our partners, and our team. Rigorous plans are in place to ensure your safety.

We continue to work closely with our partners at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta and follow all federal, state, local, and CDC guidelines. Community Levels are a tool to help communities decide what COVID-19 prevention steps to take based on the latest data. Because the Fulton County COVID-19 Community Levels are currently high, we are now requiring masks be worn in all public spaces. We will update our requirements as the COVID-19 Community Level for Fulton County changes over the next week and keep you informed of these changes.

For your convenience, masks will be available at registration tables for those participants that do not bring their own. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
