IRE23 COVID-19 protocol

IRE takes the health and safety of all attendees at its events seriously and follows the guidelines of CDC, state/local health authorities and the conference venue.

All attendees must be vaccinated against COVID-19. 

  • To request a medical or religious exemption from the vaccination requirement, please complete this confidential form. IRE has the sole discretion to approve or not approve this request. 
  • All those who receive an exemption must wear a mask at the event.

If an attendee, speaker or IRE staff do not meet these requirements, they will not be allowed to attend the event.

Masks aren’t required, unless you received an exemption, but IRE encourages attendees to use masks indoors. CDC notes people properly wearing a well-fitting mask protect themselves and those around them, and that wearing a well-fitting mask is most beneficial in crowded and poorly ventilated locations.

We ask anyone feeling ill or showing any symptoms of COVID-19 to not attend. If you are unable to participate for a COVID-19-related reason, please let us know immediately and we will work with you on your registration. 

If you become ill during the conference, we ask that you isolate yourself. If you want to do a COVID test, IRE staff will work with you to find one. 

IRE will continue to monitor CDC guidelines and any state/local ordinances and will update attendees if there are any changes in protocols.
