COVID-19: Health and Safety Guidelines

Revised February 2023.
Guidelines are subject to change.

As we welcome you to the Theatre Education Conference the health and well-being of our attendees, staff, and volunteers remains our number one priority. The following protocols for TEC continue to be informed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Florida Department of Health, local governments, and our partners at the Tradewinds Resort.

•    The wearing of masks is OPTIONAL. 
•    Proof of a COVID-19 vaccination or negative test is no longer required for entry.

If you are experiencing COVID-19, flu, or cold symptoms or have recently been exposed, please stay at home and contact to cancel your registration.

COVID-19 related health guidelines are subject to change and revised policies may be in effect at the time of TEC, including, but not limited to, protocols to mitigate a COVID-19 variant/concern or policy, such as the wearing of masks. We will continually assess changes and will adjust our policies according to updated public health guidance and applicable law.  

For the most current information, refer back to this page or email closer to TEC. Protocol updates will also be sent to all attendees prior to TEC.

Thank you for your cooperation, support, and understanding. We look forward to seeing you in St. Pete Beach!

On-Site COVID-19 Testing and Reporting

On-Site COVID-19 Testing and Reporting

Any attendee who believes they may be experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 should alert their troupe leader, floor captain, or EdTA staff immediately.  Should testing be recommended, visit COVID testing and select Monroe in the test sites by county drop-down menu to find locations closest to IU Bloomington. You can also find at-home test kits at many retail pharmacies.

If you test positive, report your positive test to the EdTA staff using the COVID-19 self-report form. In the event of a positive test result, attendees will quarantine per current CDC guidelines.
