Health & Safety During COVID-19

PAS is actively monitoring health and safety guidelines and recommendations at the federal, state, and local level. As new best practices become available, we will continue to update our policies and procedures regarding COVID-19 in relation to PASIC 2021.

Safety at PASIC

As of August 17, 2021, the following will be required while attending PASIC:

  • All individuals attending PASIC will be required to show proof of fully vaccinated status in order to receive their PASIC 2021 Badge
  • All individuals will be required to wear a mask that covers the nose and mouth while inside the expo hall or a room that is being used to present a PASIC session
  • Social distancing will be highly recommended, and PAS will work with the Indiana Convention Center to provide spacious seating in all sessions
  • Frequent hand washing and sanitizing is highly recommended
  • Individuals should monitor their health and stay home if they are feeling ill
Will booster shots be required?

No, booster shots will NOT be required.

My child is too young for the vaccine. Are they still able to attend PASIC?

Since all children under the age of 12 are currently ineligible to receive the vaccine, they will not be able to attend PASIC 2021.

I am unable to get the vaccine for medical reasons. Can I still attend PASIC?

If you have a medical exemption, you may still attend PASIC with proof of your exemption. Please contact pasic2021@pas.org for additional details and requirements.

What if I am not vaccinated yet?

Good news! If you get your second shot on or before October 27, you will be fully inoculated before PASIC. To find a place near you to get a free COVID-19 Vaccination, visit https://www.vaccines.gov/search/.

If I am vaccinated, do I still have to wear a mask?

Yes. All individuals will still be required to wear a mask that covers the nose and mouth while inside the PASIC expo hall or a room that is being used to present a PASIC session or meeting.

I am already registered for PASIC and will not be vaccinated prior to the convention. Can I get a refund?

Please email membership@pas.org to request a refund.

If you do not see your question listed above, please contact pasic2021@pas.org.
