Update on California COVID Protocols 

As of March 15th, 2022, we are pleased to announce that California—including Orange County, home of Huntington Beach—has updated its protocols for groups of people under 1,000. As a result, all registered attendees, and those of you who are in the process of registering, for this year’s User Forum should note that our policies have shifted.  

In accordance with updates provided by the state, we are NO LONGER REQUIRING an official COVID vaccination card or a negative COVID test for clients and partners wishing to attend. In addition, masks are NO LONGER REQUIRED for indoor functions; however, they are still recommended by the CDC.   

We hope that this updated information puts you and your organization at ease about attending MeridianLink LIVE! as companies begin resuming travel & educational events.
