Before Leaving Home

  • IAEE will require proof of COVID-19 vaccination for all attendees
    • All attendees will be required to provide “COVID-19 vaccine validation” details to the secure, Fern Health Check platform powered by Share My Health, in advance of the event. Detailed information about how to provide COVID-19 vaccine validation will be provided a few weeks prior to the event via email.
    • To be considered fully vaccinated, your final vaccine dose has to be administered by Wednesday, 9 March.
  • IAEE will waive its vaccine requirement if an attendee has a qualified exemption and agrees to submit a negative COVID test taken within 72 hours of arrival. A qualified exemption is either a medical reason which prevents the attendee from obtaining vaccination or a bona fide religious belief which prevents vaccination. If you wish to be eligible for an exemption to attend the conference, please email IAEE at registration@iaee.com and state that you are entitled to a qualified exemption. You do not need to inform IAEE of which exemption you are claiming or any other details. IAEE will provide instructions for submitting the negative COVID test.
  • Follow relevant guidance provided by the Center for Disease Control(CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) or your local health authority.
  • Adhere to government issued travel restrictions and guidance issued by the region you will be travelling to and the region you are travelling from.
  • Evaluate your own health and that of people you are in close contact with.
  • Stay home if you feel sick.

Onsite During the Event

  • Face Covering Policy: Face masks are strongly encouraged but are no longer required by Prince George’s County or by the Gaylord National Resort.
  • Follow CDC, WHO, and guidance from the State of Maryland for everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses including:
    • Washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or an alcohol-based sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
    • Avoiding touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
    • Covering your nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing. Throw used tissues in the trash.
    • Cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Adhere to physical distance protocols put in place by IAEE and respect others’ personal space.
  • Go to a Health Care Facility (or equivalent) at any time, if you feel unwell or are experiencing flu-like symptoms.
