Updated COVID-19 Policy (updated Oct. 4, 2022)

For the 2022 Fall Convention, the Pioneer district will defer to the COVID policies of our host city, Kalamazoo. Attendees will not be required to show proof of vaccination nor proof of a negative COVID-19 Test done 72 hours prior to the event as we did in the spring.

The PIO Board recommends that attendees use their best judgment in regards to obtaining vaccinations and/or the use of masks. Those wishing to wear a mask are encouraged to do so. Anyone who believes they may have COVID-19 are encouraged to test before they come, or to simply not attend the 2022 Fall Convention in the best interests of all attendees.
