Reducing the Risk of COVID-19 at the IAQ & Energy Symposium

As an organization dedicated to creating healthy indoor environments, we care deeply about COVID risk reduction at our IAQ & Energy Symposium.  We will use a "layered risk reducation" approach to managing our space at the event, relying on several protocols that taken as a whole, will provide greater risk reduction than individual measures taken alone.

Masks

All attendees at the IAQ & Energy Symposium must wear a mask: nose and mouth covered throughout the event except when eating and drinking.

Proof of Vaccination or Negative Test Required

All attendees at the IAQ & Energy Symposium must provide either:

 

1) Proof of full vaccination for COVID-19.  (This should be uploaded to our system upon event registration.)

     OR
 

2) Proof of a negative COVID test within 24 hours of event start, with no high risk contact/exposure in between.  Be prepared to show dated proof prior to event entry.

Attendance Limits Based on Ventilation Capacity

Following ASHRAE guidance and calculations of the ventilation system's capacity, attendance at the IAQ & Energy Symposium will be capped at 150 people.  Early registration is recommended. 

Increased Filtration

In addition to the high quality filtration components within the HVAC system, we are making arrangements for additional, portable air cleaning devices to be present and running throughout the event.

Physical Distancing and Hand Cleaning

Room layouts, traffic patterns will further reduce the risk of exposure.  Hand cleaning stations are located throughout the Civic Center.

Contactless Registration and Credit Check-in

Advance, on-line registration is required to attend the IAQ & Energy symposium.  Registration must be completed no later than 12:00 Noon on Wednesday, March 2, 2022.

Bring your phone or other hand-held device to the event to scan QR codes to access on-line continuing education credit sign-in.

COVID-19 Contingency Plans

Your safety comes first.  In the event that we are unable to proceed with a live, in-person event, we have made contingency plans to shift the Symposium to a fully virtual event.
