For all of us and our families, our health is our most important issue. The Beet team and the staff of the Vanderbilt are dedicated to making the event safe. So, I wanted to share our plans.
Our sessions will be held in a very large conference room with separated seating. Our lunches and dinners will be served outside. Masks won’t be required in our meeting and dining area but will be in public areas. The hotel will be strict health and safety protocols throughout the property.
Travel to Puerto Rico
While Puerto Rico is part of the United States, the territory has taken special steps to keep the population and visitors safe. It has the highest vaccination rate in the U.S.
Pre-Testing and Bringing Proof of Vaccination
We are requiring proof of vaccination at the Beet Retreat, and we are asking all our participants to take a COVID test 48 hours before your flight. We suggest a test at your local lab or pharmacy, versus a home test, but a home test is ok.
Please bring proof of your negative result and proof of vaccination with you when you check-in at the Beet Retreat registration desk at the hotel. If you haven’t taken a test, we will have a testing service at the hotel when you check-in.
COVID Testing On-Site
While most attendees will be tested before their flight, we will have a testing company on site, at the hotel, providing rapid tests on Wednesday from 12:30pm-3:30pm. Let Katy (firstname.lastname@example.org) know if you would like to be tested on-site. Test kits will be available for late arrivals and for anyone who wants to be tested during the event.
If You Test Positive – The Beet Insurance Plan
If you test positive before your flight, we will miss you. We will apply your registration fee to another Beet Retreat within the following 12 months. We are not responsible for cancelled travel plans.
If you arrive at the Vanderbilt and are positive, you sadly can’t join us. You are welcome to stay at the hotel. (Not a bad place to be stuck!) Beet.TV will cover your room charges for an additional two nights while you quarantine at the Vanderbilt or at a comparable property in San Juan. The registration can be applied for a future Beet Retreat in the following 12 months.
Puerto Rico is a U.S. territory and excluded from the CDC requirement to provide a negative COVID-19 test result to return to the mainland United States.
