The Cycle For Air is one of the American Lung Association’s signature fundraising events. Your participation will raise the funds necessary to help provide life-saving lung health education, research and advocacy efforts.
As the trusted champion of lung health, the American Lung Association closely follows CDC guidance related to COVID-19. The COVID-19 pandemic is changing rapidly and requires evolving strategies to maintain effective public health measures. As such, our COVID-19 safety protocols may shift in response to updated COVID-19 local conditions and local ordinances. When the local community spread referenced on the CDC map is low, exemplified by the green or yellow ranges, vaccines and masks are not required inside or outside event locations. When the community spread level is high, shown in orange, vaccines or a negative COVID test (rapid or PCR) within 48 hours pre-event for indoor events, must be shown. For outdoor events in orange communities, masks are encouraged in high traffic areas, and for indoor events in orange communities, masks are required except when actively climbing or sitting at a table. The American Lung Association reserves the right to adjust safety protocols, up to seven days prior, based on CDC guidance and/or venue, state, and local ordinances.
