Our Shared Commitment
PAS shares with all PAS 2022 Meeting attendees, speakers, exhibitors, staff, and vendors a commitment to and responsibility for a safe and healthy environment for all event participants. As we pursue this commitment, we are grateful for the PAS community’s deep knowledge of the risks posed by COVID-19 or its variant strains and full support for safety procedures implemented by PAS in order to reduce potential virus spread. Thank you as well for your kind consideration of the comfort and preferences of your fellow PAS participants.
Safety and preventative measures implemented by PAS and PAS venues will take into consideration guidance from federal, state, and local public health authorities. But even as we implement these measures, please be aware PAS cannot fully eliminate all risks of harm to event participants or guarantee safety, especially those posed by COVID-19 or its variant strains. Ultimately, as a PAS 2022 participant, you are responsible for your own safety. Please also recognize this is a fluid situation, and PAS safety procedures may change. We will update you as needed via the PAS website, emails, and other communication channels. Thank you for your understanding.
COVID-19 Safety Procedures
Your safety is our #1 priority. Here are a few key details to keep in mind when planning for our in-person meeting in Denver.
Face Coverings: PAS mandates the use of a mask and recommends a surgical mask, that covers your nose and mouth while participating in PAS sessions within the Convention Center. Masks may be removed by participants while:
- At a podium/microphone
- Actively eating or drinking
Be advised that masks:
- are recommended by PAS while using public transportation and U.S. transportation hubs, including airplanes and airports
- are not mandated by Colorado or Denver public health officials and thus may not be required at local restaurants or similar venues. Please follow posted venue guidelines.
Vaccines: Participate in the PAS 2022 Meeting only if you are up to date on your COVID vaccination.
Consideration: Respect the preferences of others regarding social greetings – fist bumps, hugs, and handshakes – and social distancing
Compliance: Comply with PAS safety procedures and PAS staff directives and be aware these may change at any time. PAS efforts may include requests for proof of vaccination, responses to health questionnaires, or healthcare-provider verification of negative COVID-19 PCR test results or documentation of exemption from vaccine requirements due to health circumstances of sincerely held religious belief. PAS may require repeat or alternate test protocols during the course of the event.
Participation: Do not participate in PAS activities or discontinue participation if you feel unwell, are awaiting COVID-19 test results, believe you have been exposed, or are unable to participate safely. PAS will provide guidance regarding local testing availability and housing options for extended isolation if needed. Attendees will be responsible for the scheduling and cost of testing or housing. Please reach out to us immediately at +1.346.258.6216 if you test positive for COVID.
