As of April 4, 2022:

With the decline in COVID cases in Vermont and recent updates to state and local guidance, Efficiency Vermont is no longer requiring proof of vaccination status or negative test results at the Better Buildings By Design Conference. Additionally, masks will be optional throughout the event.

We do ask that if you experience COVID symptoms while you are at the conference, please remove yourself from the event spaces and follow doctor recommendations.

Efficiency Vermont will continue to monitor statewide and local COVID transmission rates and will modify this guidance if needed.

Traveling and attending events with a large number of attendees during the COVID-19 pandemic places individuals at risk. Attendees who participate in person will be participating at their own risk. Neither Efficiency Vermont, Vermont Energy Investment Corporation, nor Delaney Meeting & Event Management will be liable should an attendee contract COVID-19 while participating in or traveling to the Better Buildings by Design Conference in South Burlington, Vermont.
