The 2022 Good Business Summit is designed with health and safety of all participants in mind. All attendees, speakers, staff, and volunteers will be required to present either proof of full vaccination status or a negative COVID test from the past 48 hours before attending (Feb 22-24, 2022). In general, people are considered fully vaccinated: 2 weeks after their 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. Event staff will verify this information on-site via card or photocopy of card. Anyone who cannot present this information will be directed to local testing facilities.

In addition to the policies of the host location (Charleston Music Hall), Lowcountry Local First will comply with the latest guidelines set by the CDC, the State of South Carolina, and the City of Charleston (host location’s municipality). Masks are encouraged for all attendees, regardless of vaccination status, while indoors, and social distancing should be maintained at all times.

Lowcountry Local First will provide access to hand sanitizer and disposable masks. However, we encourage attendees to avoid personal contact, such as handshakes, to minimize the spread of infectious diseases, including COVID-19. The event will limit attendance to no more than 40% of the total venue’s capacity.

We ask individuals to NOT attend the event if any of the following conditions are true for you:
– Within 14 days before attending the Good Business Summit you have tested positive, or been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19;
– Within 48 hours prior to attending the Good Business Summit, you have experienced symptoms of COVID-19 (e.g. a fever of 100.4F or higher, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shaking, muscle pain / aches, headache, sore throat, loss of taste or smell, nasal congestion, runny nose, vomiting or diarrhea, fatigue, or any other symptoms associated with COVID-19 identified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention);
– Within 14 days prior to attending the Good Business Summit, you have traveled to any international territory identified by federal or applicable state or local governments as being subject to travel or quarantine advisories due to COVID-19.
