2021 ISMPP West Conference & Exposition
Duty of Care 

During these challenging times, ISMPP is committed to continuing to provide a safe and healthy environment for all conference participants and staff. While ISMPP cannot guarantee that conference attendees will not become infected with COVID-19, ISMPP has adopted preventative measures to reduce the potential spread of the COVID-19 virus at our conference in accordance with guidance provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and the Marriott Irvine Spectrum. In addition, ISMPP will comply with all applicable requirements imposed by federal, state, or local health authorities for the locality in which the conference is taking place. However, the responsibility for a safe and healthy event environment is shared among the event organizers, event venues, and event attendees.

Towards this end, all conference attendees are expected to also comply with all applicable requirements imposed 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 ISMPP has implemented to protect against the spread of COVID-19 such as:

  • social distancing,
  • mask wearing,
  • personal hygiene and hand sanitization,
  • adherence to pathway signage,
  • self-monitoring and self-reporting.

These precautions are outlined in further detail below.

You should not attend the ISMPP conference if you are experiencing, or within the 10 days prior to the conference or event have experienced, symptoms associated with COVID-19. You also should not attend the ISMPP conference 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 ISMPP at [email protected] if they experience symptoms of COVID-19 within 10 days after participating in the ISMPP conference. Any private health or personal data that may be received by ISMPP in connection with such measures and precautions will be treated as confidentially as possible.

Once on site, ISMPP requests that all conference attendees regularly and thoroughly wash or sanitize their hands throughout the day, observe social distancing guidelines whenever possible, and properly use facial coverings, as required, in all meeting spaces during the ISMPP conference.
