Health and Safety Plan

COVID-19 Safety Plan for the AFCEA Spring Intelligence Symposium

Current as of December 15, 2022

AFCEA is fully committed to holding a rewarding 2023 Spring Intelligence Symposium at the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency in Springfield, VA. Our priority is always the health and well-being of our community. Our COVID-19 Safety Plan is a living document that will be updated, as we work closely with the NGA to create a safer experience for the AFCEA Spring Intelligence Symposium participants.

Face Coverings

Face coverings are optional for attendees. Please bring your own facial covering. A limited supply will be available onsite; inquire at registration.


Onsite visitors must complete the DD Form 3150, “Contractor and Visitor Certification of Vaccination” attesting their fully vaccinated status and should keep the completed form on their person while in the facility to show authorized DoD personnel, if requested. Official visitors who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19, or who decline to volunteer their COVID-19 vaccination status, must show an electronic or paper copy of negative results from an FDA-authorized or approved COVID-19 test administered no earlier than 72 hours prior to their visit. Failure to complete the DD Form 3150 or show a negative COVID-19 test result will result in denial of NGA facility access.

On-Site Medical

Staff trained in first aid will be onsite at the NGA Campus and will be able to assist symposium participants as needed. Additionally, an isolation area will be provided for individuals experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 who are unable to immediately leave the symposium.

Hand Sanitizer

Hand sanitizer will be available to attendees.

Social Distancing

We will do everything we can to ensure that proper social distancing measures are in place, to include adequate spacing between attendees’ seats in the auditorium and overflow rooms.

Personal Accountability Commitment

Providing a safer environment for our event participants is a top priority. Achieving this is a shared responsibility. By attending the Spring Intelligence Symposium, you agree to abide by and engage in conduct that is beneficial to health and safety while attending the event. This includes, but is not limited to, complying with local regulations, wearing a mask if required (except when eating, drinking or onstage speaking), engaging in appropriate physical distancing, and not attending the event if you are ill or have been recently exposed to COVID-19.

The COVID-19 Symptom List will be included in event communications and posted on event signage. Attendees are asked to stay home, or in their hotel room, if they do not feel well or have any of the following symptoms: fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, and diarrhea.

An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable.

By attending the AFCEA Spring Intelligence Symposium you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
