COVID-19 Health & Safety Policies - Updated January 5, 2022

US HUPO is preparing their annual conference to be an in-person event experience so that all individuals onsite—attendees, speakers, staff and venue personnel—remain safe and comfortable throughout the event. We are committed to creating a safe space for in-person events to be held and are in constant communication with the venue.

As an attendee, your safety and wellbeing is our number one priority. With that in mind, US HUPO will implement the following best practices:

  • Proof of full vaccination is required to attend (Pfizer, Moderna, J&J, AstraZeneca, or combination/mixed). For the purposes of this conference, full vaccination is two weeks from final shot and less than six months from your final dose (including booster shots).
    • If you do not provide proof of vaccination, you will not be allowed inside the conference space; no exceptions will be made.

  • Proof of negative PCR or Rapid antigen test is required within 72 hours of the first day of the Conference.
    • A link to local testing sites will be posted soon.
    • A photo of an at-home test is acceptable, provided it is timestamped within 72 hours of the first day of the Conference. Given the limited availability of at-home tests, we highly encourage you to plan ahead and order early.

  • Face masks will be required in all indoor and outdoor spaces.

    • An acceptable “mask” is made of at least 2 layers of breathable hospital grade material; fully covers the nose, nostrils, and mouth; fits firmly under the chin; and fits snugly, but comfortably against the side of the face.
    • Bandanas and face shields are not permitted.
  • US HUPO reserves the right to deny entry to anyone seeking admittance or remove them from the venue should they present any COVID-19 like symptoms or refuse to wear a mask.
  • Handshaking, hugging or other unnecessary person-to-person contact will be discouraged between all participants.
  • Hand sanitizer stations will be placed throughout the conference spaces and in common areas.
  • High-touch areas (session rooms, bathrooms and common areas) will be regularly cleaned and sanitized.

IMPORTANT: In light of events surrounding COVID-19, this is an appropriate time to remind ourselves of the risks inherent in participating in conferences. Even with every reasonable precaution to keep you safe as outlined for you by the CDC, US HUPO cannot fully eliminate all risks of harm to attendees or guarantee their safety, especially from risks posed by COVID-19 or its variant strains. Ultimately, you are responsible for your own safety.

We hope these enhanced safety protocols will make you feel at ease joining us at the US HUPO 2022 Conference and Tradeshow, and allow proteomics scientists to come together again to share education, ideas and best practices. As an industry that has been navigating constant challenges over the last 18 months, it is needed more than ever.
