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 Developer Summit (Dev 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.

Will I need to provide proof of vaccination to attend?

All attendees and Esri employees at the summit must demonstrate that they have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19. This event will support the use of Health Pass by CLEAR to verify vaccination. If you are unable to download and use the Health Pass by CLEAR as verification, you can provide your proof of vaccination on-site for manual screening at the Health Pass Help Desk.

How do I verify my COVID-19 vaccination?

Esri will be using CLEAR Health Pass to verify vaccination and does not have access to any personal information that you submit to CLEAR Health Pass.

There are multiple options to digitally verify your COVID-19 vaccine With CLEAR. Select the one that works best for you:

  • Upload a photo of your CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card (CDC Vaccination Card).
  • Digitally link a vaccine from a health system or pharmacy.

How does CLEAR protect my personal data?

Privacy is at the center of everything CLEAR does, and CLEAR is fully committed to protecting members' information. CLEAR does not sell or rent any personal information that you submit to Health Pass and will only use personal information to deliver a frictionless and secure experience with CLEAR. You can read more details about this on CLEAR's Privacy Policy page.

How do I to complete my Health Pass?

Select your vaccine provider in the menu or by conducting a search of other providers. Log in to your patient portal and follow the instructions to securely link your account with CLEAR. 

The CLEAR app is integrated with select health-care providers and pharmacies.

  • If you are unable to find your provider in search, CLEAR may not be able to link with them at this time.
  • Check that your COVID-19 vaccine appears in your patient portal; if not, we recommend that you reach out to your provider directly.
  • Your results will link automatically; do not try to resync your results.
  • Sync time varies by provider and may take up to 30 minutes.

Once synced, proceed to complete your Health Pass.

When prompted, select add your vaccination card to upload a photo of your CDC Vaccination Card.

How do I find my Health Pass result after I close the app?

Attendees who do not complete the Health Pass will be required to show their CDC Vaccination Card and photo ID at the Health Pass Help Desk. 

Can I take a screen capture of my Health Pass for entry into the event?

No, you must show your Health Pass in the CLEAR app because it is a dynamic screen.
