ICEP COVID-19 Policies for In-Person Meetings and Educational Events
The Illinois College of Emergency Physicians has a COVID-19 policy to afford the greatest level of protection for all our staff and attendees.
- All ICEP meeting and educational event attendees are required to be fully vaccinated* and may be asked to show proof of vaccination upon entry to the event space.
– Proof of vaccination – demonstrated by:
- a photo/copy of your vaccination card, plus a photo ID,
- your personal health care portal documentation of vaccine administration (e.g., MyChart app),
- another mobile app that stores proof of vaccination (e.g., Clear or My Bindle).
- Social distancing protocols are required.
- Masking of all participants is required.
- If you have had COVID-19 within the past 3 months (90 days) and no vaccination, if requested, you may show proof of previous COVID-19 positive status with date. You must not have any symptoms, be greater than 10 days out from illness if not hospitalized (or 20 days out if hospitalized) and show proof of a negative COVID-19 test within 24 hours prior to the date of the event.
- If you do show up at the meeting with symptoms or develop symptoms during an event, we reserve the right to require you to leave the event.
ICEP reserves the right to amend this policy at any time based on changes as stipulated by national and/or state public health official guidance.
Unfortunately, for most in-person events, due to the logistics of hybrid platforms and the nature of these events, there is not a virtual option, unless otherwise stated.
*Fully vaccinated – the definition of what is considered “fully vaccinated” may change as state and national guidelines change.
