Safety Guidelines for Summit 2022

By registering for the Summit, all in-person attendees agree to abide by the federal, state, and local guidelines relative to COVID-19, as well as any additional precautions deemed necessary by Summit planners at the time of the event. 

*Update March 15, 2022* Admittance to the Summit requires that all attendees and presenters submit proof of vaccination; agree to wear a face mask / covering indoors, except when eating or drinking; meet the attestation expectations in our safety guidelines beginning the day of the event; and agree to self-isolate if they meet any of the COVID restrictions due to symptoms, exposure, or international travel prior to registration. We will not be requiring a negative Covid test 72 hours prior to the event.

Test kits will be available for attendees who are concerned about exposure or feel sick.

What does “fully vaccinated” mean?

All in-person attendees are required to provide proof that they are fully vaccinated. Per the CDC,[1] a person is considered fully vaccinated

  • Two weeks after receiving their second dose in a two-dose series, such as with the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, or
  • Two weeks after receiving a single-dose vaccine, such as the Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine

You must be fully vaccinated by March 12, 2022, to be eligible to attend the conference.

What are the protocols for international attendees?

Full vaccination is defined by the attendee’s country of origin. International in-person attendees must follow their country of origin requirements and current CDC testing guidelines when traveling to the United States. Per the CDC:[2]

Before arriving in the United States, all air passengers coming to the United States, including U.S. citizens and fully vaccinated peopleare required to have a negative COVID-19 test result no more than three days before travel or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 in the past three months before they board a flight to the United States.

After travel, international visitors must

  • Get tested with a viral test 3–5 days after travel
  • Self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms; isolate and get tested if you develop symptoms
  • Follow all state and local recommendations or requirements after travel

Will there be accommodations for those who cannot be vaccinated due to religious or medical reasons?

For the 2022 Summit, we are requiring in-person attendees to show proof of vaccination. Unvaccinated attendees may participate in the Summit remotely.
