In order to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and promote the well-being of all participants, everyone is required to complete this personal health status/medical history survey prior to participating in an in-person REEF event or prior to boarding a vessel as part of REEF activities.
As of September 1, 2021, all REEF Project attendees (incl Field Survey Trip, AAT Projects, and other event) who are eligible to be vaccinated for COVID-19 either need to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 prior to participation or comply with additional safety measures (outlined on the REEF Trip Policies webpage) in order to participate. Full vaccination is 14 days past the final dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, such as a two-dose vaccine (e.g., Pfizer, Moderna) or a one-dose vaccine (e.g., Johnson & Johnson).
If you are aware of being in close contact (within 6 feet) with someone who has recently tested positive for COVID-19, watch for symptoms for 10 days after you last had close contact. Even if you don’t develop symptoms, get tested at least 5 days after you last had close contact with someone with COVID-19 and prior to joining in the REEF event. You are not permitted to participate in REEF events if you have been in close contact with someone who is COVID positive in the last 5 days.
If you have recently tested positive for COVID-19, you are not permitted to participate in REEF events until a full 10 days after your symptoms started or the date your positive test was taken if you had no symptoms.
Participants of in-person programs will be strongly encouraged to wear a face mask at all times while indoors and while outdoors when social distances cannot be maintained. Participants boarding a vessel will be encouraged to wear a face mask at all times while boarding and onboard the vessel, except when in the water (and follow all rules of the vendor).
Attendees of REEF Field Survey Trips and other in-person events are strongly encouraged to test for COVID-19 prior to traveling to the destination and 4 days after arrival.
By signing this form, you confirm that you have read the conditions and policies and have answered the health screening question to the best of your ability.
I understand the information is being gathering to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and will answer the questions to the best of my ability. I will update REEF if my responses to any of these questions change between the time I submit the form and the start of my REEF in-person event.
