ROADMAP CONFERENCE 2022 COVID-19 PROTOCOLS

Updated 10/1/2021

The Roadmap Conference takes the safety of its attendees, speakers, sponsors, exhibitors, and partners very seriously. As the situation with COVID-19 is changing daily, we are closely monitoring the response by healthcare and government officials to ensure the protection of all our stakeholders. We will continue to update this page as changes are made.

The Roadmap Conference 2022 will take place in person at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, Oregon. Attendees should be aware of the following policies:

 

Vaccination/Proof of Negative Test Requirement

  • All attendees will be required to show proof of full vaccination for COVID-19.
  • If you have a medical exemption, a negative COVID diagnostic test (PCR or antigen) is required. The test must be completed within 48 hours of the day of attendance.
  • In general, people are considered fully vaccinated:
    • 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or
    • 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine
  • Upon arrival, staff will check for proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test. Proof of vaccination can include your physical vaccine card or a photo of your vaccine card. If you have questions regarding proof of vaccination, please email hannah@roadmapforth.org
  • After verifying your vaccination status, staff will provide an identifier (details to be determined). Please do not remove this identifier during the event, or you may be asked to re-submit proof of negative test or vaccination.

 

Face Covering Required

  • As of posting, the state of Oregon requires face coverings at all times when indoors, regardless of vaccination status. Face coverings must fully cover the mouth and nose.
  • The Roadmap Conference will follow local regulations regarding face coverings at the time of the event, and updates will be made to this page if changes occur.
