COVID-19 Safety Protocols

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends everyone 5 and older get a COVID-19 vaccination to help prevent the spread of disease. To maximize protection from possible variants and to prevent possibly spreading it to others, everyone is strongly encouraged to wear a mask indoors.

People who are fully vaccinated with an FDA-authorized vaccine or a vaccine authorized for emergency use by the World Health Organization can travel safely within the United States.

IRE takes the health and safety of all attendees at its events seriously. All in-person attendees at the 2023 NICAR Conference must be fully vaccinated.

If a conference participant — registrant, speaker, IRE staff — does not meet these requirements, they will not be allowed to enter in person. They will have the option of attending virtually. 

To request a medical or religious exemption from the vaccine requirement, please complete this confidential form. IRE has the sole discretion to approve or not approve the request.

IRE will work with the hotel to provide hand sanitization stations throughout the event spaces. Distanced seating sections will be available in meeting rooms to accommodate various levels of comfort. Due to this social distancing, some in-person events may be limited due to on-site venue space capacities. 

You should not attend the conference if you are experiencing or exhibiting any COVID-19 symptoms.

IRE will inform attendees of any changes to this safety protocol.
