TALA Conference Sparkler,

The Texas Assisted Living Association has committed to instituting a variety of measures aimed at protecting your health and safety at the 2021 TALA Annual Conference and Tradeshow at the Kalahari Resort.

We are enacting a number of health safety procedures utilizing multiple mitigation factors, including:

Proof of negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of attendance. In lieu of the PCR test, you may submit proof of full COVID-19 vaccination. Upload your negative PCR test or CDC-issued vaccination card through our Accushield HIPPA-complaint online portal by October 17th. Complete TALA Conference Health Form

Masking is required unless actively eating or drinking while indoors at the Kalahari Convention Center.

Wellness screenings will be conducted by Clairvoyant at the registration area. Attendees must screen daily.

On-site BinaxNOW testing will be done courtesy of Principle Laboratory for individuals who do not pass the wellness screening.

Hand sanitizer stations are located throughout the meeting space.

Food will be in individual packaging.


Recent data shows it is safer to attend a business conference than visit the grocery store.

In-person business events have higher vaccination rates than general group gatherings.
