Your health and safety is our top priority. WMPLC is actively monitoring the incidence of COVID-19 in our region. We will follow guidance from the Missoula County Health Department, Missoula College, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding large gatherings. Because participants come from all over the state, and due to the unpredictable nature of the coronavirus variants, ALL presenters and participants will be required to wear a face mask regardless of if there is a local mask mandate. However, if you are sick or feel like you are getting sick, we ask that you please stay home and attend virtually. Notify WMPLC immediately so they can notify the caterers. WMPLC will share our safety mandates for attendance as the date of the event approaches. At this time, our upcoming August Institute will take place as planned. If necessary, WMPLC will hold the event virtually or cancel.
