NLBMDA Health & Safety Procedures

NLBMDA Health & Safety Procedures


The health and safety of the NLBMDA ProDealer Industry Summit attendees, exhibitors, and staff remains our top priority as we return to in-person events. We are making preparations to ensure the highest standards of safety, hygiene, cleanliness, and operational effectiveness for all participants. 


NLBMDA will continue to adjust its health and safety protocols on an ongoing basis based on recommendations from the CDC and local authorities.


NLBMDA Protocols

NLBMDA is watching the Washington D.C. guidance carefully in regards to the COVID-19 pandemic, and realigning our health and safety measures on an ongoing basis.


Vaccine Requirement: Beginning February 15th, Washington D.C. will no longer require indoor venues to verify that patrons are vaccinated.  

Mask Requirement: As of March 1st, the District’s indoor mask requirements will be “dialed back.” DC will no longer require that masks be worn inside businesses like restaurants, gyms, and retail establishments, though business owners are allowed to continue to require masks themselves and the city would continue to advise people to wear them. For the latest list of requirements please visit the DC Corona Virus page.


Please note that businesses may choose to keep vaccination and/or mask requirements in place at independent businesses.


Prior to traveling, attendees will be asked to evaluate their own health and that of the people they are in close contact with, and to stay home if feeling sick.


CDC Guidance

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has a checklist of considerations for travelers when making the decision to travel away from their home communities.  When you travel, please follow the standard protocols that have been implemented to prevent the spread of the coronavirus: 

  • Clean your hands often. 
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. 
  • Keep six feet distance from others. 
  • Wear a face covering in public. 
  • Cover coughs and sneezes. 

For the latest guidance, visit the CDC website for guidance on travel within the United States. 


Air Travel

Your airline is the best source for personal safety protocols at the gate and on the airplane. Be sure to visit your airline website the week you are traveling and sign up for notifications related to your trip. Reagan National Airport has a Health & Safety page that is updated with information about what they are doing and what travelers should expect when arriving and departing from either airport.



Be sure to check your state's travel restrictions when planning to attend this event.
