Updated COVID-19 Precautions — Bring Your Masks


The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is now recommending that all individuals wear a mask indoors in public, in areas of substantial or high transmission levels, to maximize protection and prevent spreading to others.


In consultation with government and industry stakeholders, Space Foundation is currently directing that all individuals, regardless of vaccination status, wear masks at indoor settings that are part of the 36th Space Symposium. Space Foundation will continue monitoring reports and guidance from the CDC, Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment, and the El Paso County Department of Public Health to assess potential changes to this policy. The health and safety of all Space Symposium participants remain of the utmost importance to Space Foundation.


While the COVID-19 pandemic is still present, Space Foundation is working closely with The Broadmoor team, Freeman exhibit management, other support vendors, and state and local public health authorities to provide everyone a safe and successful Space Symposium environment. Those efforts include thorough and constant cleaning and sanitizing of surfaces, assembly venues, meeting rooms and exhibit spaces. Other safeguards include high-tech scanning, the use of facial coverings and social distancing practices. As the event date approaches, the latest details outlining the safety and hygiene practices to be used by The Broadmoor and Freeman will be updated on the Space Symposium website.
