They should also attest that, regardless of their vaccination status, they will not be attending the meeting if they are ill or have been exposed to COVID-19 within the 14 days preceding the meeting. All attendees will be asked to complete the attestation either as part of registration, or in case already registered through a link provided by us by email. Individuals who do not complete the attestation will not be permitted to enter the meeting.
