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 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.
 

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, you may view the conferences that are offered as digital content.

In-person attendance requirements

All attendees, exhibitors, presenters, and Esri employees at Esri events must verify they have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19. A third-party application will be implemented at the event for verification. In addition, all attendees must reside in the United States. A person is considered fully vaccinated

  • 14 days after their second dose in a two-dose series, such as the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.
  • 14 days after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson's Janssen vaccine.

This guidance applies to COVID-19 vaccines authorized for emergency use or fully approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on or before March 1, 2020. The list of FDA-authorized vaccines is available 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 the Health Pass by CLEAR app, where attendees can provide their vaccination status for registration and have a quick and easy way to show proof of vaccination.

Step 2

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

Step 3

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

Step 4

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

Step 5

Once on-site, open the CLEAR app and tap Your Pass and then 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 their second dose in a two-dose series, such as the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.
  • 14 days after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson's Janssen vaccine. 

This guidance applies to COVID-19 vaccines authorized for emergency use or fully approved by the FDA on or before March 1, 2020. The list of FDA-authorized vaccines is available here.

If an attendee or exhibitor does not meet these requirements, they are not considered fully vaccinated and will not be permitted to enter the conference.

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 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. In addition, all attendees must reside in the United States.

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 two 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.
  • 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 it 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 COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card to complete my Health Pass?

Select your vaccine provider from the menu or by searching other providers. Log in to your patient portal and follow 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 by searching, CLEAR may not be able to link to it 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.

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

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

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

Can I take a screenshot of my Health Pass for entry into an 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 have used 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. 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 conference and that high-touch surfaces are thoroughly disinfected.

Are there other health and safety actions I should take?

All attendees, exhibitors, and staff should

  • Avoid attending the venue if they 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 their eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Engage in additional responsible health and safety practices, whether on or off the event premises.
