Let's do our part to keep each other healthy


Check this page for updates about health and safety requirements

Esri is committed to protecting the health and safety of our attendees, exhibitors, employees, and presenters. We follow the established protocols from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) and ask that all in-person event attendees do the same. Esri will continue to assess the evolving public health guidance regarding large gatherings and adapt accordingly. These guidelines are subject to US government and local rules and regulations.
 

We encourage every individual to make informed decisions about attending our events in the best interest of their own health as well as the health of others. If you cannot or choose not to comply with the 2022 Esri Public Sector CIO Summit (CIO Summit) on-site health and safety requirements, you will not be able to attend.

In-person attendance requirements

All attendees, exhibitors, presenters, and Esri employees at Esri events must verify that they have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19. The conference will implement a third-party application for verification. A person is considered fully vaccinated 14 days after receiving either of the following:

  • The second dose in a two-dose series, such as the Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, Covaxin, Covishield, BIBP, or Sinovac vaccines
  • A single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson's Janssen vaccine

This guidance applies to COVID-19 vaccines authorized for emergency use by the World Health Organization (WHO) or approved for full use by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on or before January 25, 2022. The full list of emergency use and authorized vaccines can be found here.

If an attendee or exhibitor does not meet these requirements, they are not considered fully vaccinated and will not be permitted to attend in-person events.
