Safety Protocols

The Austin Chamber is committed to protecting the safety of our members, our guests, our staff, and their families, and we will be utilizing an online screening process to ensure our events are as safe as possible.

In addition to requiring masks when not actively eating or drinking, we will ask attendees to either verify vaccine status or provide proof of negative COVID-19 test. Those who verify that they’ve been vaccinated will not be required to provide proof of a negative test.

Prior to attending any Chamber event, please install the ReturnSafe app using the instructions below. This will enable you to verify your vaccination or negative test status prior to the event. We will also ask you to verify your health status the day of the event to get your green check ✅ and be cleared to enter the event.

Download the app for Android or iPhone and enter our workspace:

  • Android users: Install the ReturnSafe app from the Google Play Store
  • iPhone users: Install the ReturnSafe app from the Apple App Store
  • Open the app, click “Find My ReturnSafe Space” and enter the following Workspace code: austinchamber

Login using your name, email address, and mobile phone number.

If you are unable to install the ReturnSafe app, you may use the desktop/kiosk version. We will have kiosks at the event to allow you to verify your health status as well.

To avoid long wait times, please complete the ReturnSafe protocols prior to arriving at the event.

Thank you to our sponsors!
