Please visit this website for any changes that may be made regarding upcoming meetings.

We want to encourage you to plan to stay until Sunday to enjoy time with your colleges and the local festivities.  This will allow AVORE to fulfill our nightly room commitment for each of the 3 nights so we can continue to put on fantastic and educational CE in the years to come.

Regarding your COVID questions:

For the January AVORE meeting we will be following current California, San Diego County, and CDC guidelines for small indoor events:


In California, unvaccinated persons continue to be required to wear masks in all indoor public settings. This guidance is an update, in light of review of the most recent CDC recommendations. To achieve universal masking in indoor public settings, we are recommending that fully vaccinated people also mask in indoor public settings across California. This adds an extra precautionary measure for all to reduce the transmission of COVID-19, especially in communities currently seeing the highest transmission rates. Local health jurisdictions may be more restrictive than this guidance. 

In California, fully vaccinated people might choose to wear a mask in indoor non-public settings, particularly if they are immunocompromised or at increased risk for severe disease from COVID-19, or if they have someone in their household who is immunocompromised, at increased risk of severe disease, not fully vaccinated, or not yet eligible for vaccination.
