NEIWPCC COVID-19 Policy

NEIWPCC is committed to providing an event that keeps all participants as safe as possible and promotes the well-being of our community. NEIWPCC requires all individuals who participate in the NAB Conference to be fully vaccinated in order to attend.

  • Following the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) guidance, people are considered “fully vaccinated” either 2 weeks after they receive their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or 2 weeks after they receive their single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine.

Guests must show proof of vaccination when arriving at the event. Accepted proof of vaccination includes the original vaccination card, a printed copy of the vaccination card, or a digital photograph of the vaccination card. To protect confidential information, NEIWPCC will not maintain copies of these documents, and any records provided will be discarded.

In addition, all attendees must adhere to all NAB Conference safety measures. The NAB Conference will operate according to the prevailing federal, state, county, and city laws, regulations, recommendations, and guidelines, as well as venue-specific regulations for the Hotel 1620, as they are in effect over the NAB Conference dates (including but not limited to face mask requirements, social distancing, etc.).

To ensure safety, we will not be accepting on-site registrations.

We will continue to revise our procedures as needed to reflect the current state of the pandemic.

We hope to see you at NAB 2023 in Massachusetts!
