COVID-19 Safety Protocols

The National Association of REALTORS® is committed to providing a safe, in-person event. Full COVID-19 protocols will be posted here as the event draws closer. All attendees and exhibitors will be asked to sign a COVID-19 liability waiver during the registration process. A copy of the waiver is below.
NAR Event Safety Protocols as of October 14, 2021


NAR is committed to maintaining a healthy atmosphere for everyone joining us in person in San Diego for the REALTORS® Conference & Expo. In an abundance of caution, NAR has implemented the following safety protocols.

Everyone in attendance must:

  • Provide proof of vaccination (any WHO-approved vaccine accepted if you have had both doses of a two-shot vaccine and 14 days have passed since last inoculation) OR proof of a negative COVID test taken no more than 72 hours before arrival.
  • Upload documentation through the verification link.
Note: If an attendee tested positive for COVID-19 no more than 90 days prior to arrival in San Diego, they will be required to upload their dated positive result to the verification link.

  • Obtain a wristband in the convention center lobby or NAR Registration in the Sails Pavilion by providing verification of the proof above. The wristband will be required to pick up your badge at the NAR Registration counters in the Sails Pavilion.  Each attendee must individually get their wristband and badge, no group pickup allowed. Guests attending ticketed events, like Inaugural or International Night Out, must also get a wristband. The wristband may not be removed and must be worn throughout the entire conference.
  • Wear masks indoors at all times, regardless of vaccination status, except when actively eating or drinking. Masks are required on all Shuttle Buses. Gaiters, bandanas, face shields, and valve masks are not acceptable.
  • Complete a daily health questionnaire while at the event via a link on the event app.

Additional Information:

  • NAR will not be providing COVID-19 tests. Here are locations in San Diego for testing or purchase of tests.
  • Attendees may indicate their contact comfort level on their badge, and we ask that everyone respect each other’s contact comfort.
  • On-site COVID Compliance Officers will be present to ensure compliance with the event protocols.
  • If you have been exposed to COVID-19 within 14 days of the Conference & Expo, do not attend the event.
  • Contact Karen Watson at kwatson@nar.realtor onsite if you contract COVID-19.
