COVID Mask Policy

Updated: November, 2023

At the Ehlers-Danlos Society, we prioritize the safety and well-being of our community. Our COVID policy is informed by current guidelines from the CDC and WHO, following industry practices and acknowledging the latest published research. 

Based on these things, we do not currently have a mask mandate for in-person attendees at our events and meetings.

We want to reassure everyone that we continue to take necessary measures to ensure a safe and hygienic environment, including maintaining good airflow, enhanced spacing between seating, and welcoming those who prefer to wear masks. 

We understand the challenges faced by individuals living with Ehlers-Danlos syndromes and hypermobility spectrum disorders, as well as those living with Long COVID, and we will continue to offer both in-person and virtual participation options at all our events and meetings to accommodate everyone’s comfort and needs.
