However, you will still have access to the event throughout the week, at any time, on any devices that have been logged into.

What COVID-19 Requirements are in place?
The future health and safety requirements and guidelines surrounding COVID-19 in the state of Utah are looking bright. We’re confident our state government and health officials are working to keep us safe and help us return to normalcy.

We’re optimistic we’ll gather together without restrictions in September for dōTERRA evōlve | connection 2021. However, if Utah requires social distancing and masks for large group gatherings at the time of connection, we ask you to abide by the local safety requirements should you decide to register and attend in person.

If you feel you’ll need flexibility to fit your personal circumstances, we encourage you to purchase travel insurance when planning your trip.
