At JDRF, protecting the health and safety of our guests, donors, volunteers and staff remains a top priority as we prepare to come together in person to advance the mission we all share.

JDRF has analyzed recent COVID-19 data and trends and there has been a decrease in the number of COVID-19 cases around the country. For this reason, JDRF has made the decision to discontinue the proof of vaccination and/or negative COVID test requirement for attendees of TypeOneNation.

Individuals who wish to wear masks at any of our JDRF events are encouraged and welcome to do so. For the health and safety of everyone, event attendees experiencing signs of illness are kindly asked to stay home. If you have any questions, please contact Elizabeth Anderson, eanderson@jdrf.org.

With your continued support, we move closer to curing T1D every day. Thank you!
