COVID Vaccination Required

Based on the feedback that we have received from MAG members – and to take every reasonable and responsible precaution – we have also decided that everyone who attends any of the meetings or events on Jekyll Island in October must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19.

This requirement applies to every physician, guest, and MAG staff.

A negative COVID-19 test result is no longer an option to attend the events on Jekyll Island.
