COVID-19 REQUIREMENTS

What do I need to know about COVID-19 requirements to attend LOA2022 in person?

LOA continues to monitor COVID-19 closely and will take all necessary precautions to support the well-being of our attendees, with unknown continued effects of the pandemic, to attend in person you must:
  • Be prepared to show proof of vaccination credentials or negative PCR* test results (obtained within 3 days of arrival to LOA2022)
  • Be prepared to wear masks at all times while indoors, with exceptions only for eating or drinking.

*A molecular PCR (polymerase chain reaction) is preferred. If not available, an antigen test administered by a pharmacy, lab, or medical professional is required.

What are the approved Covid-19 vaccines?

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), a person is considered fully vaccinated:
  • 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine.

Accepted COVID-19 vaccinations include:
  • Vaccines authorized for emergency use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration:
    • Pfizer-BioNTech
    • Moderna
    • Johnson and Johnson (J&J/Janssen COVID-19 vaccines)

Is a photo of a vaccination card sufficient or will we require the actual vaccination card?

The original is preferable, but a photo is acceptable, so long as your name, the name of the vaccine, and the dates are all clear in the image, and the name matches your ID.

What will be needed to pick up someone else’s badge given the vaccine/testing requirements?

When picking up a badge for someone else, you must have a copy of the other individual's proof of vaccination and proof of identification.

Is there an online/ upload submission option to submit proof of vaccine/covid test?

Unfortunately, we are not equipped to review these electronically at this time.

What digital vaccine passports is LOA2022 accepting?

We are looking for verifiable proof that attendees were vaccinated. This would include a photo of the vaccine card.

Will there be testing available on-site?

No. There will not be testing facilities on-site at the Salt Palace. If you are not vaccinated and need a test to attend, you must arrange for that on your own and receive a negative test result prior to arrival.
