COVID-19 Precautions

NGWA is excited to navigate the future with you during Groundwater Week 2021 in Nashville, Tennessee. We are committed to keeping our attendees, exhibitors, and staff safe during the convention. We are following all COVID-19 regulations set by Music City Center, the city of Nashville, and the state of Tennessee.

The Music City Center has been awarded accreditation as a Global BioRisk Advisory Council STAR ™ Facility. This program on cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention for facilities establishes requirements to assist facilities in their cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention work practices to control risks associated with infectious agents. It is performance based and sets out requirements for, and places responsibility for, facilities to demonstrate that appropriate cleaning, disinfection, and infectious work practices, protocols, procedures, and systems have been established and implemented.

All 248 restroom sinks in the Music City Center are equipped with touchless water and soap dispensers. All restrooms are also equipped with touchless paper towel dispensers for hand drying.

Touchless elevator buttons are installed on all elevators, ADA entry doors, and parking equipment.

In addition to extra precautions by the Music City Center, NGWA has planned for:

  • Extra-wide aisles in NGWA’s exhibit halls
  • Hand sanitizer stations available throughout our exhibit halls in Music City Center
  • Allocated time for disinfection between educational sessions if needed
  • Providing masks available for anyone in need (as of this posting in July 2021, masks are currently NOT required for attendees, but may be subject to change).
