COVID Protocols

In light of ever evolving COVID protocols and safety concerns, we hope to curate an experience as close to normal as possible while staying compliant with contemporary public health guidance and respecting the wishes of the individuals and organizations who might host IDF fellows through the course of the year. Our aim is to do as much as possible in-person with vaccine and mask requirements for all participants, some programming might be entirely virtual, have hybrid or reduced in-person capacity components, or anything in-between.
