Cobb Chamber of Commerce

Return to In-Person Events

At the Cobb Chamber, we work to ensure that our county is a healthy place to do business and a remarkable place to live. With the disruption and loss of revenue the pandemic has caused for our businesses, it is our goal to keep businesses open and operating safely. With the current state of the pandemic, the Chamber has been monitoring the most recent health guidelines and sought advice from public health agencies.

Recognizing the increased number of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations, we are returning to wearing masks at all indoor events. Cobb Chamber staff and event attendees, regardless of vaccination status, are asked to wear a mask at indoor, Cobb Chamber events. Masks may be taken off when you are actively eating or when you are spaced six feet from other attendees. In addition, our staff will be taking measures to add up to 6 feet of distance between seated guests, when available.

As conditions continue to change, the Chamber will continue to re-evaluate and update its event guidelines. With this in mind, we’d like to encourage you to consider getting a COVID-19 vaccination to help stop the pandemic. You can learn more about vaccine options and schedule an appointment at cobbanddouglaspublichealth.com/covid-vaccine/.
