Statement of Personal Responsibility
All attendees will be asked to acknowledge this when registering.
ASLMS takes very seriously the risks associated when attending a live event in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Participants agree to take full personal responsibility for themselves. You will not hold anyone else accountable, including ASLMS, its staff, its suppliers, partners, or sponsors, should you contract an illness or should anything else happen to you during your participation in
an ASLMS event. ASLMS will follow the guidance from federal, state, and local authorities regarding COVID-19 for mega events as defined by the Phoenix Convention Center. Requirements for all participants may include verification of fully vaccinated status
or pre-entry negative test result, plus a request for masks to be worn while indoors.
These guidelines are ever-evolving, and you can find current information for the State of Arizona and the City of Phoenix via the City of Phoenix
website here and the Phoenix Convention Center site here.
Currently, there are no restrictions from either the ASLMS or the Phoenix Convention Center.
Please monitor your health status and do not attend the ASLMS in-person event if you are symptomatic in any way or if you believe you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19.
Please take necessary precautions while at the event including, but not limited to, engaging in appropriate physical distancing, minimizing face touching, frequently washing hands, and avoiding risky environments. Please respect other participants who
choose to wear a mask, be physically distant from one another, and choose not to shake hands or hug. For international travelers, refer to government requirements regarding requirements to travel to the United States and return to your country.
