NOTICE - COVID-19 Precautions:
APTA Louisiana 
2021 Fall Meeting will be held in accordance with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local governmental entities. Currently there is a statewide mask mandate that requires anyone indoors to wear a mask; we will therefore be requiring all attendees/exhibitors to wear face masks at the Fall Meeting. We also highly encourage attendees to be fully vaccinated before attending the Fall Meeting. As most of the participants attending the meeting are licensed healthcare professionals, we would hope that good public health practices would be followed to further the safety and welfare of all participants. Health practices should include personal health checks, not participating in events if experiencing illness, and managing risk factors for attendance in public events. If you need to cancel your registration due to exposure to COVID-19 or positive test, please contact the LPTA Office and notify them of this reason when cancelling.*
