Covid-19 & Health Information 

Seattle International Foundation (SIF) is pleased to proceed with our conference in Antigua, Guatemala on October 7-9, 2024. While we’re excited to see our audience in person this year, the health and safety of the CADF community—including staff, attendees and vendors—is important to our team.

As Covid-19 remains an ongoing global public health issue, we recognize the importance of communicating our policies and providing useful resources to inform the travel decisions that impact your health and safety. We believe that it is important to gather our community together in accordance with local laws and to promote conditions designed to protect the health and safety of the CADF community, as well as the broader community in Antigua. In short, our 2024 health guidelines are an informed by public policies in Guatemala, the size and length of CADF 2024, the accessibility of healthcare globally, and our experience hosting an in-person conference in October 2022.

At CADF 2024, SIF has decided to follow the health guidelines established by the Guatemalan government. As of April 1, 2022, Guatemala is open to tourists, and does not require vaccines, testing, masks, social distancing or implement other travel and gathering restrictions.

SIF encourages—but will not require—CADF 2024 attendees to be fully vaccinated and wear masks. Leading up to CADF 2024, SIF will continue to monitor guidelines set forth by the Guatemalan government and communicate any changes with our audience.

At CADF 2024, SIF will provide masks and hand sanitizer to participants. The event venue staff will implement regular cleaning and disinfection services in accordance with their safety protocols.

You can help protect our community and limit the spread of Covid-19 at CADF 2024. Please consider taking the following precautions:

  • Review the country entry requirements from your point of departure, connection and return
  • Wear a mask, regularly/thoroughly wash your hands and use sanitizers to prevent the transmission of viruses
  • Take a rapid antigen or PCR test prior to traveling to Guatemala
  • Assess yourself for Covid-19 symptoms prior to traveling to the CADF 2024 venue
  • Prepare a contingency plan for your accommodation and travel in the event of a positive test
