Health & Safety Measures at HUPO 2022

The health and safety of our attendees is our upmost priority. With this in mind, we are implementing the COVID-19 Safety Policy for all Congress attendees. 

Masks will be required to be worn at all times in the convention center. The only times masks may be removed is when you are eating, drinking, taking medication, or presenting/chairing a session. The mask mandate will be strictly enforced by security.

All attendees are to be vaccinated according to the National Standards of the attendee’s country. Proof of status and photo ID with a matching name must be provided prior to entry into the Congress venue. Access will be denied if proper proof of full vaccination is not provided. Proof of a negative test will NOT be a substitute for vaccination.

All attendees must present results of a negative COVID-19 test taken no more than 48hrs prior to entry into the Congress venue. Rapid antigen tests, PCR or home tests are acceptable. For those who have very long-distance international travel, please contact us should you have problems regarding the 48-hour test requirements so that we can accommodate this. If you are unable to provide a negative test result, you will be asked to take a test onsite (a limited number of tests will be available).
