COVID-19 Policy

 

1. In general, the 2022 CPS PI Meeting will be largely guided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Community Risk Level tool found at COVID-19 by County | CDC. The current COVID-19 Community Level for Arlington, VA (the PI Meeting city location) is "medium". The organizers strongly recommend that all meeting attendees adhere to the following selected CDC medium risk recommendations prior to arriving at the Crystal Gateway Marriott:

 

  • Stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccine
  • Get tested if you have symptoms
  • Wear a mask if you have symptoms, tested positive, or had exposure to someone with COVID-19
  • Wear a mask on public transportation
  • If you are at high risk for severe illness, talk to your healthcare provider about whether you need to wear a mask and take other precautions

2. Mask Wearing: All meeting participants are encouraged to wear masks at all times (excluding when eating, drinking, or presenting a talk) in all 2022 SaTC PI Meeting designated meeting room spaces (including meeting rooms and hallways in addition to other such designated spaces). A map of these designated spaces will be posted to the website at a later date and will be posted via signage onsite on the meeting days. The meeting organizers will provide masks for participants who need them.

3. Proof of Vaccination and Proof of Testing: There will not be a requirement for proof of vaccination and testing in order to attend the PI Meeting while the risk level is medium.

4. If participants knowingly have the COVID-19 virus or experience symptoms 5 days prior to the meeting dates, the meeting organizers recommend that you do not attend the meeting.

5. If participants experience symptoms at any time during the meeting, please immediately abort attendance and inform the meeting organizers who will provide you with the location of the nearest health treatment facilities.

6. The meeting organizers will provide free masks and sanitizer at stations throughout the meeting space.

Disclaimer: The 2022 CPS PI Meeting organizers assume no liability for potential exposures onsite by participants.
