Vaccine and Mask Requirements for ISA2022 in Nashville

Vaccine and Mask Requirements for ISA2022 in Nashville: Health and Safety is Our Highest Priority

Everyone at ISA looks forward to welcoming you in person in Nashville, TN in March 2022. As a result, we want to reassure all of our prospective attendees that we are diligently working to provide a safe and comfortable convention environment.  

With this in mind, ISA2022 convention attendance requires all in-person attendees to provide evidence of full vaccination against Covid-19 prior to being admitted to the convention site.

Over the past few months, ISA HQ staff have attended a number of conferences where the industry standard is to require anyone attending in-person meetings to be fully vaccinated. As a result, ISA is upholding the high standards of the conventions industry as well as following current US CDC guidance. Please note that vaccinations should be full and complete no later than March 1, 2022. In addition, masks will be required for all attendees regardless of vaccination status while indoors, other than when eating or drinking. 

In the coming weeks, you will receive detailed information on how to upload the documentation needed to verify your Covid-19 vaccination status. We have partnered with Vital Circle, a vaccine verification and on-site departure testing company. During our 2021 fall conferences, the IS-ISSS conference piloted this program using the same company. That pilot project went very smoothly and gave ISA and our attendees peace of mind, greater certainty of circumstances, and lower risk that comes from collaboration with a very professional firm experienced in the field.  As always, please know that your health and safety are our highest priority on-site. 

PLEASE NOTE: 

  • Vaccine verification – ISA will be sending out the link to Vital Circle’s system after January 1, 2022. You will follow the instructions for loading documents there.
  • If you are traveling internationally: Isothermal Molecular/PCR Testing – Should you require PCR testing to board your international flight home, there will be appointments available in 20-minute blocks for scheduling Isothermal Molecular/PCR Testing. PCR tests can be pre-ordered during the ISA 2022 registration process. The cost will be $129 per test. Pre-order of tests is required and payment is the responsibility of the participant. (Please note: This is the test required for international air travel within 72 hours of your return flight.) You will receive information on how to schedule after the registration deadline in January.

The link to access Vital Circle will be posted on our website when it becomes available. PCR tests can be purchased with your ISA 2022 registration here, or if you have already registered for ISA 2022, you can purchase a PCR test here. Please also note that vaccine verification and PCR test pre-orders are separate items for you to process.

As always, if you have questions, please feel free to reach out to HQ @ isa@isanet.org
