HIMSS21 to require masks for all participants

HIMSS21 will also include the following safety protocols, according to the organization:   According to HIMSS, more than 18,000 people have registered for the digital and in-person experience, with new registrations continuing to roll in.   All primary venues within the HIMSS21 campus use hospital-grade (or better) air ventilation systems, as well as GS Neutral Disinfectant Cleaners on all high-touch areas.
Socially distanced seating options will be provided in all venues.
Exhibit hall will include wider aisles on the floor, with booths spaced apart.
Attendees, exhibitors and staff must complete an on-site attestation confirming compliance with all health and safety protocols.

“In alignment with applicable guidance from the CDC, the Governor of Nevada, the Southern Nevada Health District guidance, the Clark County Commissioners, and the Nevada Gaming Control Board, masks will be required on the HIMSS21 Campus,” wrote HIMSS representatives on the organization’s HIMSS21 Health and Safety Hub. (HIMSS is the parent company of Healthcare IT News.)   Clark County, where Las Vegas is located, is specifically identified as an area with substantial or high transmission.   

As previously announced, proof of full COVID-19 vaccination is also required for attendees, exhibitors, speakers and staff.   The governor of Nevada has also issued an emergency directive requiring face coverings indoors, consistent with the guidance, as of July 30.    

  Healthcare IT News is a HIMSS Media publication.  

“HIMSS is monitoring the evolving public health guidance regarding large gathering settings and will continue to provide updates and additional guidance,” wrote representatives on the Safety Hub. “HIMSS continues to ask all attendees, exhibitors, and HIMSS staff to follow all applicable regulations and make informed choices about travel, onsite and external engagement.” On-site COVID-19 testing will be available.
