COVID-19 SAFETY INFORMATION:
We’re committed to the safety and well-being of all our in-person 2023 WTCA General Assembly registrants.

- Have tested positive for Covid-19 in the last 7 days.
In addition, you are encouraged to monitor travel advisories, restrictions, and quarantine measures offered by your own country and the country/ies you plan to visit.
