CAI's 2021 Annual Conference & Expo will take place in person with a virtual component for members who cannot travel or who are not certain about attending events in person just yet.

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf lifted all Covid mitigation orders in the Commonwealth at 12:01 AM on May 31, 2021. Despite this, CAI will maintain certain Covid Best Practices to provide attendees with the comfort of knowing your health and safety is of utmost importance. These best practices include extra distance between seats for meals and breakout sessions, use of larger spaces, pre-wrapped food items, and the use of hand sanitizer. Click here to review the Boyd Gaming Boyd Clean Commitment.

Guidance on Wearing of Masks at the Event

On June 9, 2021, Pennsylvania’s Department of Health updated the state’s guidance on the wearing of masks. The updated guidance states that vaccinated individuals “can resume activities without wearing a mask or staying 6 feet apart, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance.” Additionally, according to the updated guidance from the Department of Health, vaccinated individuals “will still need to follow guidance at your workplace, in healthcare settings, and in local businesses.”

Because of this updated guidance from the Department of Health and since Valley Forge Casino no longer mandates the wearing of masks inside the venue, the chapter will follow the state Department of Health and CDC guidance with regards to the wearing of masks at the June 16-17, 2021 Annual Conference & Expo, as follows:

  • Vaccinated individuals are not required to wear masks at Valley Forge Casino.
  • Individuals who have not been vaccinated are strongly encouraged to follow current mask guidance.
