While we look forward to the return of a face-to-face conference, there is no higher priority than the safety and well-being of ADEA members and staff. Accordingly, we continue to monitor the status of the COVID-19 variants and their impact on the operational status of our ADEA Member Institutions.

ADEA will implement health and safety protocols appropriate to the public health circumstances existing at the time of the conference.

Those protocols may include, but are not limited to:

  • Testing;
  • Proof of negative COVID-19 status and/or vaccination and/or antibody status;
  • Self-monitoring;
  • Biometric screening;
  • Symptom checkers;
  • Contact tracing;
  • “Wearing a mask” mandate;
  • Use of additional personal protective equipment, social distancing and space management; and
  • Other similar measures, etc.

⚠ These protocols may be updated or adjusted.

Compliance with some or all the protocols adopted by ADEA will be mandatory for in-person attendance and participation at the conference. Additional information regarding the specific health and safety measures, and any necessary consents by you, will be communicated prior to the first day of the conference.

Failure to adhere to or comply with the safety protocols in place may result in removal from the event and/or event premises.

Be sure to check the conference website periodically for the latest conference updates.
