All delegates will be required to show proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken
within 72 hours of the start of conference. We have a strong preference for PCR
testing but will accept antigen tests as well. Tests must be taken 2/28-3/2 but we
encourage delegates to budget at least 1 or 2 days to receive results.
Delegates Experiencing Symptoms of COVID-19
Anyone displaying symptoms of COVID-19 will be asked to isolate and leave the conference, regardless of vaccination status.
Symptoms of COVID-19 include but are not limited to fever, loss of smell or taste, shortness of breath, sore or scratchy throat, headache, persistent cough, congestion, runny or stuffy nose, fatigue, and nausea.
Delegates who are experiencing symptoms are required to purchase 2 rapid COVID-19 tests. If their first test is negative, delegates can return to committee session provided they do not have a fever, and they wear a mask when in committee. However, they will be required to take a second test if symptoms persist. Delegates will also be asked to notify the rest of their delegation and their chairs of these symptoms.
Protocol for Delegates Who Test Positive While At Conference
Delegates who test positive for COVID must email email@example.com with their name, email, school, committee allocation, hotel room number (if applicable), head delegate or faculty advisor contact information, and roommate contact information.
After a positive test result, a delegate must isolate in their room and will be barred from attending UCBMUN events.
Roommates of a delegate who tests positive, as well as members in the committee, must also purchase rapid tests. If they too test positive, they will also be asked to isolate. If they are negative and asymptomatic, they can return to committee session but must secure separate accommodations and will be asked to continually monitor symptoms.
Failure for a delegate who tests positive to follow the appropriate protocol will result in that delegation being disqualified from any and all awards.
