Escambia-Santa Rosa Bar Association’s Policy for COVID Safety and Return to In-Person Events (as of 07/26/21):

As the ESRBA attempts to resume in-person functions and events, please note that we will do everything in our power to promote the safety and well-being of our members, guests, staff and vendors. Accordingly, it shall remain the policy of the ESRBA to adhere to the following:

  • ESRBA events/functions shall follow current CDC guidelines as well as any applicable protocols that may be required/recommended by our venues, state and/or local governments.
  • Symptoms: We ask that all attendees act with personal responsibility, including not attending if you or anyone in your household is not feeling well and/or has experienced any COVID-like symptoms in the 10 days prior to an event.
  • Vaccination: We also ask that attendees adhere to the current CDC recommendations based upon individual circumstances and personal vaccination status (see links below).
  • Masks: On July 27,2021, the CDC added a recommendation for everyone (including fully vaccinated people) to wear a mask in public indoor settings, in areas of substantial or high transmission. Since we fall into one of those areas, this applies to our meetings and we ask that all attendees wear a mask when not eating or drinking. 
  • We acknowledge there are a variety of opinions on almost any topic, however, we are guided by the words of our mission statement:– “to provide outstanding service to its members, to assist them in serving the profession and the community, to make the association indispensable to the bench and bar, and to preserve and promote Escambia & Santa Rosa Counties as a unique place to practice law in a culture of camaraderie, collegiality, competence, and mutual trust.”

 

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation!
