Covid-19 Statement


To ensure a fun and safe event, the following measures will be taken to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 transmission at the 2021 Cardinal Conclave. First, while we cannot predict how state and local guidelines will change moving forward, we are committed to meeting or exceeding whatever state and local guidelines are in place at the time of the event. Therefore, some of this plan may be subject to change with changes to state and local guidelines. With that in mind, delegates will be required to wear a mask or face covering throughout the weekend and maintain six feet of social distance whenever possible.

The Section, service lodge, and staff are also committed to regular periodic cleaning of bathrooms and other high-touch areas. There will also be hand wash stations as well as masks and hand sanitizer available throughout the camp for both delegates and staff. However, all delegates and staff should bring enough face coverings and hand sanitizer for their personal use during the event. 

Prior to arrival, delegates and staff will be required to screen themselves for symptoms of COVID-19 and everyone will be screened for symptoms upon arrival at camp. Throughout the event, all delegates and staff will undergo daily screening for symptoms and anyone showing symptoms will be required to quarantine until they are able to safely return home. The Section and service lodge will provide additional details on symptom screening and quarantine procedures before the event. 

The cohort model will also be used to mitigate the effects of COVID-19 by limiting interactions between delegates to a group of 50 people. Delegates will remain in their separate cohorts throughout the weekend, camping together, eating together, and participating in program together. Delegates will be assigned to cohorts based on program interest rather than lodge.

We recognize there are still numerous other questions about Conclave 2021 and appreciate your cooperation and patience as we work to find answers. Please feel free to reach out to and if you have any questions.
