GSX 2023 Health & Safety Policies
ASIS is no longer requiring proof of vaccination status or a negative test result to attend an ASIS in-person meeting or event. Mask-wearing at ASIS meetings and events is encouraged but will be optional.
Instead, ASIS expects attendees to take responsibility themselves for following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) on measures to reduce infection from COVID-19 and to protect against severe complications. ASIS urges all members to follow the CDC’s recommendation that everyone over age 12 receive the updated bivalent vaccine as soon as they are eligible to do so (e.g., 2 months past their last shot).
For more information, please review the guidelines at:
Attendees who are not up to date on vaccinations are asked to take an at-home COVID-19 rapid antigen test before traveling to any ASIS meeting and should not attend if they test positive or have symptoms of COVID-19. ASIS will not be requiring proof of these measures, however, but calls on the ASIS community to act responsibly and with consideration for the health and safety of others.
If you need a COVID-19 test while attending GSX 2023, find a testing site available in Dallas. Please consult with your physician to determine appropriate next steps. ASIS encourages all individuals to follow applicable guidance from their care providers and relevant public health authorities.
ASIS cannot be held liable for COVID-19 cases arising because of event attendance and will continue to require all attendees to sign a Participant Assumption of Risk and Release of Liability upon registering for any ASIS in-person meeting or event.
ASIS’ policy is subject to change based on COVID-19 community levels and any updated guidance from CDC and/or federal or state officials in localities hosting an ASIS in-person meeting or event. Guidance on COVID-19 is continually updated, and ASIS appreciates the understanding of its stakeholders as we seek to provide valuable, timely face-to-face programming while prioritizing the health and safety of attendees.
