In combination with the link above, the following precautions are planned (in no particular order):
- In line with the recent CDC recommendation, for fully vaccinated people to wear a mask in public indoor settings, we are asking all attendees to wear a mask in the exhibit hall and convention spaces.
- Social distancing guidelines displayed in the meeting and reception areas.
- All attendees will have to complete daily health screening questionnaire to obtain a wristband each day that will allow access to the convention spaces and exhibit hall. Room stewards and moderators will only allow those wearing the appropriate daily wristband to enter the sessions and exhibit hall.
- Increased aisle space in Exhibition Hall from 8ft to 10ft.
- Multiple boxed lunch collection areas to avoid large numbers of people congregating.
- Additional seating hall for consumption of lunch.
- All attendees asked to sign a release form agreeing to abide by the measures in place but acknowledging there still exists a risk and that they will not hold VECCS or its agents liable.
- Multiple Hand Sanitizer stations throughout
Also, we encourage our attendees to follow The 5Ws while at IVECCS!
