Health & Safety

ASGCT will be monitoring the situation surrounding COVID-19 and following any health and safety protocols necessary so we can keep each other safe during the meeting.

The safety of meeting attendees is ASGCT’s top priority. We believe the most effective way to ensure the safety of all in-person attendees at the Policy Summit is to require everyone to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Additionally, ASGCT is requiring all in-person attendees to wear masks on site at the JW Marriott Washington, D.C.

In-person attendees should be aware that, while ASGCT will make every effort to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission on site, it is possible that attendees will come into contact with people in airports and hotels who could potentially carry the virus.

For those unable to travel or meet the vaccination requirement, ASGCT offers a virtual meeting registration option. Both in-person and virtual attendees have access to on-demand meeting sessions through October 27, 2022.

ASGCT considers a person to be fully vaccinated: 

  • Two weeks after receiving the second dose in a two-dose series, such as the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines; or

  • Two weeks after receiving a single-dose vaccine, such as the Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) vaccine

Please note that booster shots will not be required.

ASGCT will accept a full course of immunization with any vaccine that has been authorized by the World Health Organization (WHO) or the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The product may be either fully authorized or authorized under an emergency use authorization (EUA) or equivalent at the time of travel (see list of eligible vaccines). Vaccination with an agent that is not included on the WHO or FDA website as authorized will not be accepted.

COVID-19 Reporting

If you are attending the Policy Summit in person and you experience any COVID-19 symptoms, please refrain from attending and notify as soon as possible.
