Health and Safety

Your Safety is Our Top Priority

To ensure maximum safety, CHI has instituted mandatory health and safety protocols for all attendees, exhibitors, speakers and staff who attend in person.

Attendees who cannot participate because of this policy, or due to travel restrictions, are encouraged to participate using our highly praised virtual event platform. Our virtual events are designed to provide you with an in-person experience at your convenience, anywhere, anytime.

We are actively following news and recommendations around COVID-19 and the Omicron variant. These protocols are subject to change as we continue to learn more.

All in-person attendees must:

  • Have a negative COVID-19 test result from an FDA-authorized over-the-counter antigen test within 24 hours prior to arriving at the event. You will be asked your results at registration.

CHI recommends all attendees:

  • Have an updated COVID 19 vaccination
  • Wear a mask in public spaces at the event

Cleaning Protocols
CHI will follow all local guidelines. Read more about how our venue is working to ensure safety here. We’ll also have hand sanitizing stations available throughout the event space for your use.


Our Code of Conduct

All in-person attendees must agree to CHI’s Code of Conduct. If you choose to attend in person, you agree to:

  • Take a COVID test within 24 hours prior to arriving at the event. You will be asked for your results at registration.
  • Follow all safety protocols set by event staff
  • Not attend if you have tested positive for COVID-19 (even if you don’t feel sick)
  • Not attend if you feel sick
  • Wash your hands frequently
  • Be respectful of your fellow attendees– everyone’s comfort level with social interactions is different

If you are not able to participate because of this policy, or due to travel restrictions, you are encouraged to attend the event virtually.

Frequently Asked Questions

TRAVEL & TESTING

I’m coming from outside the United States – what are the requirements for entry?
Starting June 12, 2022, CDC no longer requires travelers from a foreign country entering the US to show a negative covid test or documentation of recovery. Before departure review the current CDC guidelines or check with your airline for more information.

I’m coming from outside the United States, what is the policy for me to return to my country of origin?
If traveling internationally, check with your country of origin for details about entry requirements and restrictions for arriving travelers. Follow all entry requirements for your destination and provide any required or requested health information. If you do not follow your destination’s requirements, you may be denied entry.

I need to have a COVID-19 PCR test before I return home. Where do I do that?
We recommend contacting the conference venue directly for nearby testing facilities or visit the CDC website for a directory of state health departments. These local health departments will have the latest information on testing facilities. Appointments may be required, and the type of viral COVID-19 tests may differ by location.

What should I do if I test positive during or after attending the conference?
In the unlikely event that you test positive for COVID-19 during or following participation in our conference, we would appreciate being informed. Please get in touch with Pam Gerardi, Director, Client Relations pgerardi@cambridgeinnovationinstitute.com.

Should I get a COVID-19 test after attending the event?
We encourage any attendee that exhibits COVID-19 symptoms to reach out to their healthcare provider and receive a test.

ATTENDING IN PERSON

Is there anything special I need to bring with me to the event?
You may want to bring a mobile device or laptop to join in some of our virtual sessions and speaker Q&As (please make sure your devices are fully charged; we do our best to make outlets available but cannot guarantee them).

How should we greet and meet our fellow attendees?
This one is up to you. Please follow your personal comfort level and respect the boundaries of your fellow attendees. Handshakes, waves and elbow bumps all welcome.
