COVID Protocols at DGIQ 2022
Updated on January 3, 2022
We at DATAVERSITY have evaluated the available COVID-19 health protection protocols very closely, always with the utmost priority on the safety and security of all DGIQ participants. This is why we have made the decision to require that all DGIQ 2022 attendees be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by the start date of the event in order to attend. For the purpose of this Policy, “fully vaccinated” means 14 days have passed since the individual received the second dose of a 2-dose vaccine or the first dose of a single dose vaccine.
Proof of vaccinations will be verified through the third-party application CLEAR for all US Attendees and through a different process for International Attendees. Details on this process will be announced as we get closer to the event dates.
Face coverings will also be required in all indoor conference areas.
There is a considerable amount of data that informs this decision, and though we anticipate that this policy may not be popular with everyone, we believe that it is in the best interests of allowing DGIQ participants to attend and network confidently with other attendees, speakers, and sponsors.
Of course, we understand that most people will still have questions, and we are currently preparing an Onsite Policies, Procedures, and Services document to address these. In the meantime, you are welcome to email firstname.lastname@example.org with any specific questions you may have.
One important thing to mention is that the Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa is the perfect venue for a return to in-person attendance. The meeting rooms are literally steps away from the beach on Mission Bay, so it’s really easy to step outside and take your mask off. Some of our presentations are actually conducted on paddle steamers moored on the resort docks, so the salt air is constantly circulating.
