We will no longer require proof of a COVID-19 vaccine for participants to attend DMDC 2022 as the city of Washington, D.C. lifted the vaccine mandate on Feb., 15. Also, the indoor mask mandate has been lifted and we will no longer be requiring those during DMDC programming. However, the U.S. Transportation Security Administration(TSA) still requires masks for airports, airplanes and any other federal transportation. We will continue to monitor and will provide updates as necessary as circumstances evolve.
