New England Leadership Development Program Cohort 9

COVID-19 Safety Policy

As of February 10, 2023

 As we mentioned in earlier communications, our team has incorporated LDP Cohort 9’s COVID-19 Safety policies in relation to current guidelines and conditions. The program’s COVID-19 guidelines are subject to immediate change as the public health situation, CDC guidance, and local regulations and/or venues change recommendations or requirements. 

Based on these policies, as of today, masking will be optional during face-to-face LDP 9 sessions. Please self-monitor for symptoms BEFORE attending each day. (Resources are below.) We will review this policy before each of the face-to-face retreats.

Please refer to current federal, local, and venue guidelines as follows:
