INDA’s COVID-19 Protocols: Standards for a Safer Event

We all want to further ourselves as individuals and as an industry. That often requires gathering together to exchange ideas, connect with peers and generate the spark for new innovations. But in these times, meeting with one another demands adherence to special precautions.

At INDA, we are 100% committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for all of our event participants and staff. While we can’t guarantee that attendees at our events or training courses will not be exposed to COVID-19, we have, as an organization, adopted preventative measures to reduce the potential spread of the virus at our events in accordance with:

• Guidance provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
• All applicable requirements imposed by federal, state, or local health authorities for the locality in which the event or training is taking place

While we’re taking every measure to comply with these standards, the responsibility for a safe and healthy event environment is shared among the event organizers, event venues, and event attendees. Toward this end, all attendees are expected to comply with all applicable requirements set by federal, state, or local health authorities for the locality in which the

conference is taking place, and in addition to our code of conduct, they are expected to adhere to and abide by the safety precautions INDA has implemented to protect against the spread of COVID-19. These precautions can include social distancing, mask wearing, personal hygiene and hand sanitization, adherence to pathway signage, self-monitoring and self-reporting.

Also, you should not attend an INDA event or training course if you are experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19, or if you’ve experienced symptoms within 10 days prior to the event or training course. You 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, conference attendees should self-monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 and are asked to contact INDA at if they experience symptoms within 10 days after participating in the INDA event or training course. Any private health or personal data that may be received by INDA in connection with such measures and precautions will be treated as confidentially as possible.
