We are excited to be holding the upcoming ISFOG in-person this August in Austin, Texas.
We are also sensitive to the changing environment with respect to COVID-19 and are dedicated to hosting an event that has the best interests of our guests front of mind. ASCE is committed to holding an event where everyone feels safe. To accomplish this, we have updated our ISFOG attendee policy concerning COVID-19, which can be found below.
Please note that an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists anywhere other people are present. Any person who chooses to travel to and/or participate in this conference assumes all risks arising from that decision, including but not limited to infection from other vaccinated or unvaccinated participants, hotel staff, hotel guests, or other persons. All attendees must agree to comply with all safety procedures established by ASCE/G-I as well as any other protocols put in place by the host sites, travel facilities, or any other applicable authorities.
Keeping You Safe
ASCE and the Geo-Institute are sensitive to the changing environment with respect to COVID-19 and are dedicated to hosting an event that has the best interests of our guests front of mind. We are committed to holding an event where everyone feels safe. To accomplish this, we have updated our ISFOG attendee policy concerning COVID-19 which can be found below:
- To mitigate the risk of spread, all participants will be required to provide proof of vaccination against COVID-19. The only exemption to this policy will be religious or medical reasons. Only those claiming a religious or medical exemption must provide documentation of a negative PCR or antigen test taken 72 hours prior to arrival. Attendees who do not comply with these requirements and provide documentation will not be admitted.
- ASCE will be partnering with third-party vendor to validate that each participant has filed the appropriate documentation to attend.
- Attendees are encouraged to practice social distancing and limit physical contract such as hand shaking or hugging to maintain a safe environment.
- In accordance with CDC Masking Guidelines, as of February 25, 2020, ASCE masking guidance is as follows:
- In areas with "low" Covid-19 community levels, there is no recommendation for mask-wearing
- In areas with "medium" levels, CDC advises talking with your doctor about wearing a mask if you're at increased risk for Covid-19.
- In areas with "high" levels, the CDC advises wearing a mask in public indoor settings, including schools
