SFNet's Safety Protocols

SFNet cares deeply about the health and safety of our members and conference attendees. As such, we are making every effort to provide an experience where people feel comfortable and have peace of mind. Be assured that we will monitor the most current federal and local guidelines and member policies to help keep you safe.

SFNet may require proof of vaccination and/or a negative COVID test result for certain in-person events. You will find the specific requirements for in-person attendance at each SFNet conference by clicking on the Events section of our website.

The CDC states that vaccinated people may resume domestic and specific international travel and refrain from testing and self-quarantining before or after travel. Mask requirements on public transportation and at transportation hubs are no longer in effect. CDC continues to recommend that people wear a mask in public indoor settings where the COVID-19 Community Level is high, regardless of vaccination status. SFNet will provide masks accordingly at all indoor venues. We urge all attendees, regardless of vaccination status, to follow the CDC’s guidance for staying safe in both indoor and outdoor settings.

Release and Assumption of Risk

As we continue taking important steps to provide for the health and safety of our attendees, we ask that you review our COVID-19 information, well-being protocols, and policies on this site. By registering for in-person attendance to this event you agree to adhere to the policies to sustain a healthy and safe environment for our attendees. It’s important that we all respond responsibly and transparently to these health precautions. Any and all private health and personal data will be treated with confidentiality and sensitivity.

Because COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is spread mainly from person-to-person contact, the Secured Finance Network (“SFNet”) has adopted preventative measures to reduce the spread of the COVID virus at its in-person conferences and events in accordance with guidance published by the CDC for events and gatherings, in coordination with event host properties. SFNet will comply with all applicable requirements imposed by state and local health authorities for the locality in which the conference or event takes place. However, SFNet cannot guarantee that in-person conference attendees will not become infected with COVID-19.

Individuals who fall within either of the categories listed below should not attend SFNet conferences or events in person:

Individuals who are experiencing, or within the 14 days prior to the conference or event have experienced, symptoms associated with COVID-19; or

Individuals who believe that they may have been exposed to a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19 or have been diagnosed with COVID-19 and are not yet cleared as non-contagious by state or local public health authorities or the health care team responsible for their treatment.

Conference and event attendees should self-monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 and are asked to contact SFNet at sfnet@sfnet.com if experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 within 14 days after participating in an SFNet conference or event.
