Health and Safety

ARRS remains committed to delivering a high-quality, engaging in-person experience for Annual Meeting attendees in New Orleans, LA. Our number one priority is the safety and wellbeing of our registrants, presenters, exhibitors, corporate partners, and staff.

ARRS is requiring proof of complete COVID-19 vaccination upon admittance to the 2022 ARRS Annual Meeting for staff, exhibitors, faculty, presenters, and attendees.

Vaccination Verification: More information will be provided on this page in March 2022, as well as by email to in-person registrants, regarding how full vaccinated status will be verified.

Criteria for Full Vaccination: For the purposes of attending the 2022 ARRS Annual Meeting in New Orleans, a person must meet one of these criteria to be considered fully vaccinated:

  • Option A: Received a two-dose series vaccination, such as the Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, Oxford/ AstraZeneca, or other approved WHO vaccines, with the second dose administered on or before April 15.
  • Option B: Received a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine, on or before April 15.

If a registrant, presenter, exhibitor, corporate partner, or staff member does not meet these criteria, they are NOT considered fully vaccinated and will not be permitted to attend the 2022 Annual Meeting in person.

Alternative Participation: If you are unable to join us in New Orleans, we invite you to participate in our full virtual meeting, which offers live streaming of all meeting content and 1-year on demand access.

In partnership with the city of New Orleans as well as the meeting venue, the Hyatt Regency New Orleans, ARRS will adhere to all local, state, and CDC COVID-19 guidelines that are in place at the time of our meeting.

More details will be communicated closer to the meeting. For now, you can view the most up-to-date travel advisories and guidelines below. We expect this information to evolve over the coming months, so be sure to check back as the meeting approaches.
