UPDATED: PEARC22 COVID-19 Protocol
Please submit your vaccination card or negative result here ASAP. Once verified, usually within 24 hours, you will receive an email with a green checkmark. You must be verified in advance as we cannot accept vaccination cards or negative test results onsite. Note that the submission response comes from webmerge.me (check your spam folder), and a confirmed submission (able to attend) will only list your name with a check mark.
All PEARC22 attendees must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or provide a negative result from a PCR test administered not earlier than July 7 by a licensed COVID-19 testing facility. (Results from over-the-counter, home tests cannot be accepted.) There are no exceptions to this requirement and failure to comply will not warrant a refund of conference fees. PEARC22 has contracted with a third-party provider, InHouse Physicians (IHP), to oversee all vaccine and testing verification.
Per the Centers for Disease Control, one is considered fully vaccinated two weeks after a second dose in a two-dose series, such as the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines, or two weeks after the single-dose J&J/Janssen vaccine.
Members of the PEARC22 planning committee will not be involved in the verification process, will have no access to attendees’ personal health data, and will not know whether a vaccine document or negative test was submitted in fulfillment of this requirement, though IHP will provide notification of individuals’ compliance with this requirement.
Note: If you received different vaccine brands and/or received your vaccinations at different locations, please provide the brand and/or location of your second dose in the two-dose series when submitting your information. Please do not submit information about booster doses.
For those planning to submit test results, please note that results from over-the-counter home tests cannot be accepted. Only tests administered by a fully licensed COVID-19 testing facility, such as CVS, Walgreens, or a licensed healthcare provider, can be accepted. Please schedule your test in advance and allow ample time to receive and upload your results. Failure to comply with this requirement will not warrant a refund of conference fees.
Because this guidance will not impact the hotel itself, the Front Desk is not asking for/verifying proof of vaccination when checking in as a guest.
If you have questions, please contact PEARC22 Event Manager Erica Daniels-Cunningham at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Effective July 1, 2022, the Department of Public Health advises that individuals should wear a mask or face covering when indoors (and not in your own home) if you have a weakened immune system, or if you are at increased risk for severe disease because of your age or an underlying medical condition, or if someone in your household has a weakened immune system, is at increased risk for severe disease.
Masks can be located at the PEARC22 Registration Desk.
Anyone exhibiting any symptoms at PEARC22 will be encouraged to go to a local testing facility within walking distance.
