​​​Health & Safety ​for Hybrid Courses

​Welcome to our Hybrid Courses Health & Safety page. We will update this page regularly with information about our health & safety protocols for attendees, speakers, and staff. Going forward, we will continue to examine CDC recommendations and the guidelines put forth by the city, state, and specific venues. 

COVID-19 Vaccination Verification

All attendees, speakers, and staff are required to be fully vaccinated or show documentation of a negative COVID test taken within 48 hours prior to the on-site portion of the course. Although we encourage all participants to have a booster, Master Brewers is following CDC gu​idelines by defining "fully vaccinated" as two doses​. After registering, you will be sent an email containing instructions for providing this information.

Mask Up Master Brewers​

Masking may be required while on-site in Madison, depending on the venue requirements at the time. There is currently a masking mandate for public indoor spaces in Madison. This web page will be updated as the situation evolves. 

Pre-Travel Health Questionnaire

To ensure your health and wellness, we ask all attendees to self-evaluate their travel fitness prior to traveling to Madison, WI for the in-person week. Within 48 hours of the in-person phase of the course, you will be sent a Pre-Travel Questionnaire. If you respond "yes" to any of the questions, we request that you either get a COVID-19 test prior to your departure or remain at home. 

Expected Behavior Policy​​

​By registering for the course, you are agreeing to follow the expected behavior policy:

We are dedicated to providing a harassment-free meeting experience for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form. We ask all attendees, exhibitors, speakers, sponsors, volunteers, guests, and other participants to be considerate and respectful to all members and refrain from demeaning, discriminatory, or harassing behavior and speech. Please note, if you register a guest for the conference, you may be held responsible for the actions of the guest. Violations of this policy should be reported to meeting staff. Master Brewers reserves the right to remove any individual from attendance or other participation in any Master Brewers sponsored event without prior warning or refund, and to take additional action as determined necessary, up to and including expulsion from participation in Master Brewers Association. Any course of action recommended by Master Brewers is final.
