ACFAS 2022 COVID Policy and Protocols

ACFAS 2022 will take place on February 24-27, 2022 in Austin, Texas!

We are excited to welcome attendees in-person and are committed to providing an environment that helps ensure the safety and well-being of all members, faculty, exhibitors, staff and guests attending the ACFAS 2022 Annual Scientific Conference.

As part of that commitment, ACFAS will observe and comply with CDC guidelines, along with all state, local, and facility ordinances and regulations at all conference venues. Currently, the City of Austin mandates that face masks are to be worn regardless of vaccination status in or on city property, and on property the city owns, manages or controls. This includes the Austin Convention Center.

In addition to abiding by state and local mandates, all individuals will be required to comply with one of the ACFAS 2022 Health and Safety Policies and Protocols in order to enter our space.

  • Attendees should upload their proof of vaccination ahead of time using our secure app. If you are unable to use the app, you can bring your digital or print vaccine card with you. Watch your email and check the ACFAS 2022 Health and Safety Policies and Protocols for instructions on how to submit your proof of vaccination.
  • In lieu of proof of vaccination, those requiring a vaccine exception can upload a negative COVID-19 test within 48-hours of arriving at the conference using our secure app.

If you are unable to attend ACFAS 2022 in-person, we understand. ACFAS 2022 On-Demand will allow you to earn 23 CME credits with 13 recorded sessions. You will also be able to enjoy a live-stream of the ACFAS 2022 opening general session. More information on On-Demand available soon.

See y'all in Austin!
