Vaccination Status Update
Effective immediately, the “Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccination Policy” is no longer in effect. Attendees, speakers, employees and guests are no longer required to receive the COVID-19 vaccination to access IDWeek or participate in organization-related activities.
While vaccination is no longer mandatory, IDWeek strongly encourages all attendees, employees of partner Societies, vendors and guests to consider getting vaccinated to contribute to the overall health and well-being of themselves, their colleagues, and the community. These considerations are in alignment with CDC recommendations.
Health and Safety Measures
Vaccination status will no longer influence access to facilities, travel, or participation at IDWeek. However, we strongly support individual decisions to mask and practice hand hygiene protocols.
Compliance with Other Measures
Attendees, employees and guests are reminded to adhere to any relevant health and safety guidelines and protocols issues by local health authorities or regulatory bodies.
Review and Amendments
This amended policy will be reviewed periodically to ensure it remains aligned with the CDC’s stance on COVID-19 and related health measures.
This policy reflects IDWeek’s commitment to maintaining a safe and inclusive meetingenvironment, while respecting individual choices and circumstances.*
*Subject to change based on new evidence and recommendations.
