ON-SITE COVID-19 SAFETY PROTOCOLS

As you have heard, the Delta Variant of COVID-19 is the current dominant strain for new infections in the United States. While in the City of New Orleans the numbers remain low due in the large part to a high percentage of fully vaccinated people in the City of New Orleans (higher than the State of Louisiana and the regional averages), we need to remain diligent in the fight against COVID-19. We are monitoring information from the CDC, the State of Louisiana, and the City of New Orleans to ensure we are  operating within their guidelines.  We are asking all attendees to wear masks regardless of vaccination status. As per the Hyatt Regency COVID-19 guidelines, we can only operate at 100% capacity if all individuals are masked. To learn more about the safety protocols we are enforcing, CLICK HERE!
