Covid Policy

Your Safety is Our Priority
Your health and safety are our top priority. For 2022, the National Diversity in STEM (NDiSTEM) Conference will return to an in-person conference, and we are continuously evaluating conditions and policies to ensure a safe environment for all participants traveling to San Juan, Puerto Rico.
 
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, local conditions and safety guidelines are constantly evolving. We are closely monitoring the current federal and local COVID-19 guidelines for in-person gatherings and travel restrictions to be up to date on any changes between now and October 2022. For the most recent information on travel guidelines to Puerto Rico please visit: https://www.travelsafe.pr.gov/
 
SACNAS Event COVID-19 Policy 
Event guidance is based on information provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). 
 
COVID-19 Vaccinations 
All event participants (attendees, exhibitors, vendors, and speakers) must be fully vaccinated and boosted by the event start date. (CDC Vaccination Guidance), or provide a negative covid test 48 hours prior to arrival to participate on-site.
 
Face Coverings 
Masks will be required at all National Convention events. If you are actively eating or drinking in a public area you may remove your mask, but at all other times, we require that you wear your mask. 
Masks with vents or valves, neck gaiters, or bandanas are not acceptable. We recommend disposable KN95 masks, disposable 3-ply masks, or any NIOSH-approved respirators as the best face covering options. (CDC Mask Information) 
 
Entrances 
There will be select entrances to the convention center and exhibit halls to screen and monitor participant traffic flow. 
 
Health and Safety Signage 
Signage will be placed throughout the venue to remind all participants to frequently wash and sanitize their hands and to follow recommended face covering practices. 
 
Screening Event
Participants will be required to participate in daily screenings before they receive their entry clearance. We screen our event participants and respond to those with COVID-19 symptoms by: 
  • Completing a self-screening and attestation form before attending a SACNAS event
  • Screening temperatures upon arrival at the event
  • Isolating those exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms
