COVID-19 Precautions

As you prepare to visit, please know that we’ve made updates based on guidance from health authorities, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and appropriate government agencies.

We have taken enhanced health and safety measures—for you, our vendors, and our staff. You must follow all posted instructions while attending our events. It may be different from last year’s events, but together, we can find new ways to network and promote each other in business.

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 visiting the Women Driving Business events, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.

Help keep each other healthy.
