Code of Conduct

We want you to enjoy a safe experience while attending any IPVS Conferences. While IPVS continues to recommend people are up to date on COVID-19 vaccination, attendees of IPVC are not required to be vaccinated or verify vaccination status. In addition, masks are optional for IPVC and prior antigen testing is not required. Nevertheless, any participant with symptomatic respiratory illness should refrain from attending the conference in-person and remain isolated until fully recovered.

IPVS continues to encourage attendees to practice safe infection prevention measures to stop the spread of COVID-19 and any other infectious diseases, by maintaining social distancing, testing when appropriate, taking recommended actions when symptomatic or having tested positive. Wearing of a mask is appropriate and a personal choice as some individuals maybe immunocompromised and others maybe asymptomatically infected. We will continue to follow best practices of infection prevention as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and abide by any legal mandates and recommendations from government officials in the location of any SOCIETY meeting. These protocols and information are subject to change.

Please note, even with safeguards and the IPVS’s overarching commitment to attendee wellness, there remains a risk of contracting COVID-19 and other diseases.
