We are watching the impact of the COVID-19 Delta variant within the US and around the world with great interest and we are regularly monitoring US federal government, Louisiana state government, and New Orleans city government COVID-19 websites for changes to travel and group gathering policies/recommendations/restrictions.
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR ALL LIVE UHMS MEETINGS
We do not know the COVID-19 vaccination status of any of the registrants and we cannot require all attendees to be vaccinated. UHMS leadership is concerned with meeting attendees' health during and after our meeting and are recommending the following actions during any of the live UHMS meetings to help prevent the spread of COVID-19:
We are excited about our live in-person meeting in more than two years. We want everyone in attendance to enjoy the program and social events. We also want to ensure all attendees are protected from the COVID-19 virus. Following the above prevention steps during the meetings will significantly aid in protecting all.
FACE COVERING AND PHYSICAL DISTANCING RECOMMENDATIONS
The city of New Orleans published the latest Public Health Order on August 16, 2021 and it addresses face covering and physical distancing recommendations
Protecting public health and safety will continue to drive the City of New Orleans’ response to COVID-19. Procedures and decisions will be informed by State and Federal guidance, an internal City task force, external advisory groups, and robust data analysis. Specific public health milestones must be met before the City will begin to ease restrictions and progress from one phase to another. If these criteria are not met or if there is a spike in cases or deaths, it may be necessary to move back to stricter measures. View public health dashboard.
Modified Phase Three IN EFFECT AUGUST 16, 2021
The City of New Orleans continues to meet all public health milestones and has fully vaccinated over 74% of all adults with the COVID-19 vaccine. However, only slightly more than 52% of all New Orleanians have been fully vaccinated. Furthermore, there are several census tracts in the City with vaccination rates below 50%. Therefore, the New Orleans Health Department is reimposing restrictions on certain activities pursuant to the Mayor’s emergency powers provided by La. R.S. 29:727(F) and the “Mayoral Proclamation to Further Promulgate Emergency Orders During the State of Emergency Due to COVID-19” filed on May 15, 2020. These restrictions will be effective as of August 16, 2021 at 6:00 A.M.

RESTRICTED ENTRY INTO THE UNITED STATES
As of 13 August 2021, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website titled "Travelers Prevented from Entry into the United States" identifies those countries currently restricted from allowing their citizens from entering the United States due to COVID-19 conditions in those countries (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/from-other-countries.html). With specific exceptions, several Presidential proclamations suspend and limit entry into the United States, as immigrants or nonimmigrants, of noncitizens who were physically present within the following countries during the 14-day period preceding their entry or attempted entry into the United States. For a full list of exceptions, please refer to the relevant proclamations in the links below.
As further provided in each proclamation, citizens and lawful permanent residents of the United States, certain family members, and other individuals who meet specified exceptions, who have been in one of the countries listed above in the past 14 days will be allowed to enter the United States. More information about what to do after arriving to the United States is available on CDC’s After International Travel webpage.
The US State Department website offers additional details on restricted entry into the United States (https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/visa-information-resources/covid-19-travel-restrictions-and-exceptions.html).
