Safety First at the Annual Conference

NYSAR3 is taking safety precautions to ensure the in-person event is as safe as possible. Precautions for in-person attendees include:

  • Attendees should follow the CDC Guidelines for travel as well as for Community and work.
  • NYSAR3 has worked with the Otesaga to accommodate additional spacing between chairs in session rooms.
  • Conference attendees are asked to please stay home/switch to virtual if they are experiencing any Covid-19 symptoms, and/or have recently been exposed to anyone who has tested positive.
  • Testing for Covid-19 is available throughout NYS and available to all NYS residents. To view testing locations available near you, please visit the NYS Coronavirus website

The Otesaga has a Commitment to Care for their guests so you can feel safe and welcome. NYSAR3 also encourages those planning the Annual Conference in-person to take all the necessary precautions, including those recommended by the CDC guidelines above. Together, we can all work to keep everyone safe.



Looking for a rideshare option to and from Cooperstown for the conference? Have an extra seat in your car? Please keep an eye out for additional information on the Whova Community Board where we will be seeking to coordinate rideshares between conference attendees – to both lower our carbon footprint and expand access to the event, and maybe make a new friend!
