COVID - 19 Protocols
What are the Colorado COVID-19 restrictions?

As the National Athletic Directors Conference approaches, we will continue to stay up to date on Denver and Colorado guidelines regarding COVID-19. For all information concerning public health orders in Denver, follow this link:

Do I need to wear a mask at NADC?

With the number of people we will host at the national conference, we strongly encourage everyone to wear a mask during conference events, regardless of vaccination status.


At this time, there is still a federal mandate for everyone to wear a face mask while using public transport. This includes airplanes, buses, trains, taxis, Ubers, and Lyfts.

Should I expect delays?

While in Denver, restaurants may have long wait times as a result of worker shortages. In addition, it’s likely to take longer than normal to move through the Denver International Airport when leaving the national conference.

Can I get a refund because of school policy?

The NFHS/NIAAA is aware school districts might change their COVID-19 protocol for travel as the school year goes on. If a change occurs, we will be sensitive to that and offer a refund.
