Although attendees should recognize there is risk involved in attending in-person events, ACC, along with our venue and vendor partners, have adopted preventative measures to reduce the potential spread of the COVID-19 virus at our in-person programs in accordance with guidance provided by the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC). The health and safety of all attendees is our top priority. 

Our duty of care is a living document. We recommend you check this webpage regularly as we will update it as the CDC and/or state or local public health authorities’ guidance is updated or changed. 

What to expect when attending a 2022 in-person ACC event

Vaccination

  • All event attendees and their registered guests, speakers, sponsors, and ACC staff will be required to show proof of full vaccination with a vaccine approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or World Health Organization (WHO) prior to attending an in-person event. A list of approved vaccines can be found here
  • Consistent with CDC guidance, ACC also strongly encourages attendees to receive a booster (where available) prior to attending an in-person event.
  • ACC has contracted with ShareMy.Health, a processor of health information that processes your data in compliance with privacy laws, and allows attendees to comply with the health and safety protocols for our in-person meetings.  

    All registered attendees will receive an email from ShareMy.Health with a link so that you can create an account and upload your vaccine information. The account will only ask for your name and your vaccination record - no other personal information will be required.

    Once verified, you will receive an email confirming your vaccine verification which you will be asked to show when you pick up your name badge once onsite. You will not be able to receive your badge without showing your vaccine verification email.

What we expect from you

The responsibility for a safe and healthy event environment is shared among the event organizers, event venues, and event attendees. To this end, all meeting attendees are expected to adhere to the following: 

  • All event attendees and their registered guests, speakers, sponsors, and ACC staff will be required to show proof of full vaccination with a vaccine approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or World Health Organization (WHO) prior to attending an in-person event. A list of approved vaccines can be found here.
    • Consistent with CDC guidance, ACC also strongly encourages attendees to receive a booster (where available) prior to attending an in-person event.
    • Complete a vaccine verification process. ACC has contracted with ShareMy.Health, a processor of health information that processes your data in compliance with privacy laws, and allows attendees to comply with the health and safety protocols for our in-person meetings. Confirmed registrants will receive next steps on how to submit their vaccination information using ShareMy.Health.
  • If desired, and strongly recommended - wear a face mask while indoors and not actively eating or drinking. 
  • Adhere to spacing recommendations where applicable.
  • Complete regular hand sanitation. 
  • Regularly self-monitor for cold, flu, or COVID-19 symptoms while at event. Please ensure you do not enter the meeting space if you begin experiencing any symptoms, or leave the meeting space if you do. 
  • Not attend an ACC in-person program if you are experiencing, or within the 10 days prior to the program have experienced, symptoms associated with the flu or COVID-19 unless medically cleared by state or local public health authorities or the health care team responsible for your treatment. You also should not attend if you believe that you may have been exposed to a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19 or have been diagnosed with COVID-19 and are not yet cleared as non-contagious by state or local public health authorities or the health care team responsible for your treatment. In addition, attendees should self-monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 and are asked to contact ACC at education@acc.com if they experience symptoms of COVID-19 within 10 days after participating in an in-person program. Any private health or personal data that may be received by ACC in connection with such measures and precautions will be treated as confidentially as possible. 

You may be required to leave the Event (and forfeit registration fee) for not complying with event protocols.
