Cares' Hall

Safety is our first priority for everyone attending our EndoCares events. Even with every reasonable precaution to keep attendees safe as outlined by health authorities, the Society cannot fully eliminate all risks of harm to attendees or participants and guarantee their safety, especially from risks posed by COVID-19 and its variant strains. Ultimately, you are responsible for your own safety. We ask that all attendees wear a mask at all times during the event and to not attend if they are experiencing the following signs or symptoms of COVID-19 or its variant strains that include:

  • fever or chills
  • cough
  • shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • new loss of taste or smell
  • sore throat
  • congestion or runny nose
  • nausea or vomiting
  • diarrhea
