COVID-19 Safety Precautions

UPDATE: January 19, 2022

Out of an abundance of caution, we have made the difficult decision to move the HOMES Summit to a fully live-streamed event. We sincerely hoped that case numbers would be at a point where we could comfortably move forward with in-person, and we are disappointed to miss out on fellowship together with you. In light of that, we are still confident that we will have an excellent event with great opportunities for learning, networking, and celebrating together.

All of us with Habitat for Humanity of Michigan want all attendees to have a uniting, fun experience during the HOMES Summit. We miss gathering in person and we look forward to seeing you. We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support of Habitat Michigan, one another, and for your participation in the HOMES Summit. If you choose to attend the HOMES Summit, we appreciate your understanding and adhering to the following health and safety guidelines.

An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable. By attending the HOMES Summit in person, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.

With the goal of hosting a safe and healthy summit for attendees, Habitat Michigan staff, guests, and RAM center staff, the following safety measures and protocols will be in place during the Summit to reduce the risk of COVID-19 exposure:

  • All in-person Summit attendees must show proof they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
    • "Fully vaccinated" is currently defined by the CDC as "2 weeks after a second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson's Janssen vaccine."
    • Proof of vaccination generally includes a physical card provided at time of vaccination. Electronic versions may also be accepted if offered by your doctor/provider.
    • Many doctors, health systems, and local health departments throughout Michigan can assist you with obtaining proof of vaccination if you are unable to locate your physical vaccine card. The MDHHS has also launched an online portal here https://mdhhsmiimmsportal.state.mi.us/ to assist residents with obtaining their vaccine records.
  • All in-person Summit attendees will be required to wear a mask at all times when indoors.
    • Complementary masks will be available at the conference location if you do not have one.
  • A live-stream registration option is available for anyone that is not vaccinated or is otherwise unable to attend the Summit in person, but who would still like to view the sessions.
  • All RAM Center staff will be masked.
  • Hand sanitizer will be readily available throughout the facility.
  • Meals are pre-packaged. You may opt to eat in the dining hall or take your meal to your room if you prefer.

Failure to adhere to these guidelines may result in dismissal from the event.

These protocols were developed in consultation with Habitat for Humanity International (HFHI), the RAM Center, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and local health departments. All COVID-19 precautions are subject to change at any time. If COVID-19 trends or updates to regulatory guidance require changes to these protocols, we will notify all registered attendees at that time and update the recommendations on the HOMES Summit website as well.

Stay tuned for updates!
