Updated September 8, 2022
This page will be updated regularly with information on our onsite health and safety protocols for this event. Our attendees’ health and safety remain our top priority as we continue to monitor COVID-19 and look to venue, local, state, CDC, and WHO guidelines to make the best and most informed decisions around onsite safety and requirements.
United States Covid-Related Entry Requirements
If you are traveling to the United States, review the entry requirements from your country of origin here. As of June 12, 2022, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) no longer requires air passengers traveling from a foreign country to the United States to show a negative COVID-19 viral test or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 before they board their flight. With the ever-changing COVID-19 guidelines, we highly suggest visiting the CDC website regularly for the most up-to-date information as your trip nears. Changes and updates are typically marked at the top of the page. Read carefully to ensure you have the most recent information regarding travel rules and regulations based on your country of origin. The requirements may change so continue to check back regularly.
*Note that entry to the event requires proof of vaccination, regardless of the United State’s entry requirements.
IN-PERSON ATTENDANCE REQUIREMENTS
While many municipalities’ mask mandates have been lifted, at this time masks will still be required to be worn at the event. This is subject to change. Registered attendees will be notified one (1) month prior to the event of any updates to our mask mandate and other on-site health & safety requirements.
Masks must be worn over the nose and mouth and must be made of a tight-knit, non-permeable material. KN95 or N95 masks are recommended. Cloth masks are acceptable. Bandanas, scarves, and gators are not permitted to be used as masks.
Masks do not need to be worn when in outdoor spaces and while actively eating food and beverage indoors when socially distanced from others. Speakers are not required to wear masks while presenting.
Attendees are required to be fully vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus. Fully vaccinated is defined as two weeks (14 full days) after the final dose (1 of 1, or 2 of 2) of a government-approved vaccine.
We have no plans to remove the vaccine requirement for 2022 events however should there be a change in policy, it will be communicated to registered attendees via email at least one (1) month prior to the event.
Only vaccines approved for emergency or full use by the World Health Organization fulfill our vaccine requirement. View the most up-to-date list of accepted vaccines here.
Participants will need to show proof of vaccination and a government-issued photo id to enter the event. The following are acceptable forms of proof of full vaccination:
- Government-issued or government-compliant digital vaccination verification app (such as Clear or VaxYes)
- Physical (or digital photocopy of) COVID-19 vaccination card, record or certificate issued by a government agency, public health agency or other authorized vaccine provider (a photo will also suffice).
Wearable Indicators of Social Distance Comfort Levels
We will provide a wearable indicator of social distance comfort levels for event participants to wear onsite (optional but encouraged). Participants are asked to be respectful of each other’s comfort level on social distance.
