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 follow the on-site health and safety requirements, or if you simply cannot attend the event for other reasons, some of the conferences offer digital content.

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.

Proof of vaccination


We require proof of vaccination against COVID-19 in order to register and attend in-person events. Esri supports the use of CLEAR Health Pass via the CLEAR app, where attendees can provide their vaccination status for registration and have a quick and easy way to show proof of vaccination. We will also offer onsite manual screening. If you do not wish to complete the CLEAR Health Pass, you will be required to bring your CDC Vaccine Card for verification.

Select Have a Code, and type in the event code provided in registration confirmation.

Step 3

Tap Enroll or Verify in the CLEAR app to create your CLEAR member account.

Step 4

Tap Add Covid-19 Vaccination, then follow the prompts to securely confirm your proof of vaccination.

Step 5

Once on-site, open the CLEAR app and tap Your Pass, then tap Open Health Pass to get your result. Green means you're good to go!

Common questions

What does “fully vaccinated” mean?

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, exhibitors, and Esri employees at the conference must demonstrate that they have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19. This event supports the use of CLEAR Health Pass with the CLEAR app to verify vaccination. If you are unable to download and use CLEAR Health Pass 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 vaccination with the CLEAR app. Select the one that works best for you:

  • Upload a photo of your CDC vaccination card.
  • Digitally link a record of vaccination 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 in the CLEAR Privacy Policy.

How do I upload a photo of my CDC vaccination card to get my Health Pass?

Select your vaccine provider in the menu or by searching the list of other providers. Log in to your patient portal and follow instructions to securely link your account with CLEAR and then upload a picture of your CDC vaccination card.

The CLEAR app is integrated with select health-care providers and pharmacies. Please note the following:

  • If you are unable to find your provider via search, CLEAR may not be able to link with it at this time.
  • Check that your COVID-19 vaccination appears in your patient portal; if it doesn't, 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 the process to get your Health Pass.

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

Open the app and tap on the Health Pass tile. Choose Open Health Pass to retrieve your result again.

Attendees who do not complete the Health Pass process will be required to show their vaccination card and photo ID at the Health Pass Help Desk.

Can I take a screenshot 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.

How long will my Health Pass be valid?

Your Health Pass for this event is valid for 30 days. If you used your Health Pass for another event, you would need to add the event code and reconfirm your identity with a quick selfie.

Is social distancing required?

We encourage attendees to practice social distancing measures, including keeping a physical distance of six feet where possible as recommended by the CDC. Socially distanced seating options will be provided in all venues, including at all education sessions and networking events. The Exhibit Halls will include wider aisles, and booths will be spaced apart.

What specific cleaning actions are being taken by Esri for in-person events?

We are working with our partners to ensure that CDC-recommended cleaning protocols are followed during the event and that high-touch surfaces are being thoroughly disinfected.

Are there other health and safety actions I should take?

All attendees, exhibitors, and staff should follow these guidelines:

  • Do not enter the venue if you are experiencing any flu-like symptoms.
  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and/or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Engage in additional responsible health and safety practices, in or away from the event venue.

What other verification options are there?

If you prefer not to use the CLEAR Health Pass, you can bring your CDC Vaccine Card onsite for manual screening. Please note, that this manual screening option will take an additional 5-10 minutes before you are able to receive your conference badge and access the event.
