COVID protocols:

  • Attendees will be required to show proof of full vaccination at registration check-in. This can be your vaccination card, or a picture of it on your phone. The CDC defines fully vaccinated as "a person has received their primary series of COVID-19 vaccines." We strongly recommend attendees are "up-to-date", which the CDC defines as "a person has received all recommended COVID-19 vaccines, including any booster dose(s) when eligible."

  • We will follow the current CDC guidelines and/or local mandates on masking, at the time of the event. MIN and MLA cannot require Sunday River staff or other guests to wear masks, if the facility is not requiring it at the time of the event. 
  • In order to keep meals as safe as possible, we have opted to order continental-style breakfasts and boxed lunches (sandwiches or salads) instead of the usual buffet-style meals. Please understand that this does limit our options, particularly for those with dietary restrictions/allergies.
