Health and Safety

COVID-19 Vaccine Requirement for In-Person Attendees

NAFSA considers the safety of all those onsite at 2022 Regional Conferences as our top priority including our attendees, exhibitors, sponsors, and event staff. In an effort to host a safe and productive event, we pledge to follow all guidelines and requirements set by state and local authorities as well as Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines.

NAFSA will require proof of full COVID-19 vaccination for all participants, including all conference registrants, exhibitors, NAFSA staff, vendor partners, and guests. If you have received all recommended doses of a COVID-19 vaccine as authorized or approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or listed for emergency use by the World Health Organization (WHO), then you are considered to be fully vaccinated.

Check acceptable COVID-19 vaccines and vaccine proof here. All doses of authorized and approved vaccines must be completed two weeks prior to your arrival at the event. Attendees will receive communication and further instruction on how to easily submit their vaccination credentials in their registration confirmation email, and can also submit vaccination credentials here:

Individual Accountability

NAFSA has preventive measures in place to reduce the spread of COVID-19. NAFSA cannot, however, guarantee that attendees will properly social-distance and that its attendees will not become infected with COVID-19. Attendees agree to COVID-19 specific terms & conditions of attendance as part of the registration process.

If you have tested positive for COVID-19, are waiting for COVID-19 test results, have COVID-19 symptoms, or have had close contact with a person who has tested positive for or who has symptoms of COVID-19, please stay home. Be sure to practice everyday preventive actions, including but not limited to social distancing, washing hands often, and monitoring your health daily.

On-Site Safety

On-site safety practices include:

  • Masks are required for all attendees at the conference except for when actively eating or drinking. Participants are responsible for providing their own masks.
  • Reminders to socially distance when appropriate, wash your hands often, cover your cough, or sneeze and stay away if you are sick.
  • Prior to arriving, we encourage each attendee to do the following:
    • Be sure to register and upload your proof of vaccination PRIOR to arriving onsite to reduce congestion and forming of lines in the registration area.
    • Monitor your daily health and self-assessment prior to traveling.
  • Event Management has the right to remove or exclude anyone from the event if they do not follow our Health & Safety policies or do not follow Health & Safety instructions set forth by the Event or venue staff.

Public health guidance on preventing the transmission of COVID-19 continues to evolve, and NAFSA will base its on-site protocol on the latest guidance from the CDC in addition to local regulations.
