The current COVID-19 requirements, guidelines, and recommendations for Texas Tech are here.
In summary, vaccination and mask wearing is strongly recommended, but not required. The Texas Weather Conference will adhere to Texas Tech guidelines, and in addition:
1. Have masks and hand sanitizer available
2. Maintain reasonable social distancing (e.g., use the entirety of the room space, avoid crowding)

This includes, but is not limited to, adhering to any requirements and restrictions during the event established by the Texas Weather Conference, the Texas Tech and hotel venue.
