Health and Well-being
The COVID-19 pandemic is constantly changing, but DIA’s commitment to the health and safety of our peers remains consistent. To protect and preserve public health, DIA has made the decision that all participants at the in-person DIA Europe 2022, whether a presenter, attendee, exhibitor, staff, guest, or vendor, will be required either to be fully vaccinated with an EMA approved vaccine (having been administered at least 2 weeks prior to event) or recovered from SARS-CoV-2 infection (certificate of recovery issued within the 6 months prior to event).
Participants must provide proof of vaccination or recovery prior of the first entrance every day. Accommodation may be offered on a case-by-case basis for any in-person participant who is unable to be vaccinated due to disability or medical condition unless otherwise provided under applicable state or local law. Independently from the national/state mandate or local guidelines in effect during the dates of any meeting, DIA will require masks to be worn indoors regardless of vaccination status.
This decision was reached by examining public health and safety guidance, meeting spaces, our own event requirements, and the fact that conditions continue to change. It is our top priority to create the safest possible environment, and we will do this by proceeding with the current best practices and information available to us.
DIA Europe 2022 will also have a virtual component. You have the option to register for either the in-person event or for access to the virtual component of the event. We recognize and respect that all who choose to participate, will make the best decision for themselves and will be responsible for their own choices.
If you are unable to meet the entry requirement (full vaccination or recovery from the SARS-CoV-2 infection), we encourage you to register for the virtual component of the event.
We are continuing to review and evaluate the outlook for DIA Europe 2022 and will provide updates as they become available. As we get closer to our events, we will post more information about what you can expect onsite.
Mask wearing is mandatory at DIA Europe 2022. Please wear your mask properly (cover both my mouth and nose) at all times as directed by DIA, including but not limited to the event spaces except while actively eating or drinking.
