Covid-19/Health & Safety

The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History will follow guidelines set by the CDC and the District of Columbia for COVID safety. At this time, the Gilder Lehrman Institute will not require participants to show proof of COVID vaccination in order to attend The Making of America. We do reserve the right to change this policy if we feel that it is in the best interest of the safety of our staff, scholars, and participants. We will notify all participants immediately if this policy changes.

All activities during the institute will adhere to guidelines from the CDC and the District of Columbia. Participants will be required to follow all safety guidelines presented by the Gilder Lehrman Institute and The George Washington University. Failure to comply with these safety guidelines will result in a participant’s removal from the program.

More information about the specific guidelines will be sent to participants. Participants will be notified if and when any changes to the guidelines are made.
