Health & Safety Plan

Updated July 25, 2022

Dear ICEID Participants,

We look forward to welcoming you to Atlanta for ICEID 2022. Our first responsibility is to you — our attendees, our exhibitors, our partners, and our team. Rigorous plans are in place to ensure your safety.

We continue to work closely with our partners at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta and follow all federal, state, local, and CDC guidelines. Community Levels are a tool to help communities decide what COVID-19 prevention steps to take based on the latest data. Because the Fulton County COVID-19 Community Levels are currently high, we are now requiring masks be worn in all public spaces. For your convenience, a mask will be provided to all participants at registration.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Daniel Cameron
Chair, ICEID Steering Committee
