We are working with the Rosen Shingle Creek to implement measures to prevent spread of the COVID-19 virus at our meeting. As we prepare for the meeting, we wanted to provide some important safety information:

  • Following CDC guidelines, ACOG & APGO will require all attendees and staff to wear a mask, and practice social distancing to the extent practical in any indoor space.
  • Rosen Shingle Creek staff will be masked in CREOG & APGO meeting space.
  • Sanitizing stations will be prominently displayed throughout the property.
  • ACOG & APGO staff will work closely with the hotel to adhere to social distancing regulations while maintaining a quality in-person experience when planning seating and room sets.
