COVID-19 Update

 8/18/21

◻️ Our primary objective is to provide a joyful and safe Reunion experience. The COVID-19 Delta variant information is changing daily, so we continue to closely follow the science.

◻️ As long as all attending are fully vaccinated, it should be a safe party for everyone. 
Ideally, all of us have been vaccinated because we’re over 65. But, if you aren’t, now is the time to get your shot in order to protect yourself and others. 

◻️The Marriott has installed a new state of the art Plasma Air Filtration System through the entire hotel.

◻️The ballroom is huge (54’ x 112’ with a 23’ ceiling) so we are not crowded. It has 7 doors on 3 sides that will be kept open for air circulation.

◻️ The 6pm cocktail reception will be held on the large outdoor terrace parallel to our ballroom. The terrace will be available thoughout the Gala for dining.

◻️ The Pinstripes rooftop Happy Hour on Friday evening and the Great Falls excursion on Saturday are both outdoor events.

◻️ Nationally, Maryland is the 6th highest state in the country for fully vaccinated population at  60.1%, and 69.6% of the state has gotten at least one shot.

◻️Montgomery County is even higher than the state average. And, 95% of residents over 65 are fully vaccinated.

◻️There is currently a mask mandate in Montgomery County, but it doesn’t apply if you are eating and drinking.

◻️The efficacy rate of Moderna and Pfizer vaccines remain high at 84% six months after being vaccinated.

◻️If people in the US keep getting vaccinated at the current accelerated rate, we’ll be in even better shape in the coming months.
