Below is our current Covid policy. We will continue to monitor the situation and update it as necessary. No one can predict what the situation will be like in January. As a principle, we will follow all government guidelines and any Kalahari policies that apply.

Having a safe event, especially during a pandemic, is a top priority for CodeMash. The CodeMash board will continue to monitor guidance and adjust accordingly. The CodeMash organizers are working with Kalahari to understand safety protocols, measures, and local government safety regulations.

Zero Worry Policy : Any attendee or sponsor can get a full refund at any time.

If you are a speaker, and you feel you can’t attend, please let us know at any time. You will have our good wishes and there will be no ill will. We have a few speakers cancel every year, albeit for non-pandemic reasons, so we are used to planning around this.

Unless the government tells us we may not hold the event, CodeMash will not be cancelled. We might have to alter some details of the event, based on any mandates from the government, and the changing situation around variants, vaccines, and so on. We will stay focused on what truly matters, high quality content that is affordable and accessible.

The Kalahari has worked with us to make these adjustments to our normal event plan. These may change as the situation evolves.

– Foot handles for entry in convention center restrooms

– Hand sanitizer stations scattered throughout the convention center and in the dining room.

– Event rooms are sanitized overnight before sessions begin for the following day (tables, chairs, a/v equipment, door handles & any other high touch points). 

– A/V friendly sanitizer wipes will be provided on presenter tables for presenters to use on equipment throughout the day, in between sessions.

There will be two Buffet line types in main dining hall. Most lines are normal self-serve but will have gloves for attendees to wear. One line will be served by Kalahari staff, to limit utensil touching. Attendees choose which type of line they want to use.
