At SEGD Your Safety is Our Priority – 2022 SEGD Conference Safety Plan, Effective April 2022

2022 SEGD Conference Safety Plan, Effective April 2022 

Updated COVID-19 Protocols: Proof of Vaccination or Negative Test Required

The health and safety of our SEGD members and conference participants is our priority. Following recent trends in the event industry to minimize risk and maximize participant well-being, SEGD has decided to require proof of full COVID-19 vaccination OR a negative COVID-19 PCR or antigen test (no more than three days prior to the start of the conference) for all participants.


Proof of vaccination can be presented as a physical vaccination card or a photo of your card with your name and the date(s) of vaccination from a reputable clinic or professional medical office. Please review the CDC guidelines on vaccinations for further information.

Negative Test

If you choose to show proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR or antigen test, a physical copy or photo is also required with your name and date of test. Date of the test must be no more than three days prior to the start of the SEGD Conference, which would be Monday, June 13, 2022. 


At this time, masks are optional for conference gatherings.

We expect all of our participants to consider the health and well-being of fellow participants and adhere to this policy, practice good judgment, follow CDC guidelines and comply with all other rules, regulations and guidelines when traveling to the 2022 SEGD Conference. 

It is also important to note that our SEGD Conference venue, the Hyatt Regency Portland, is committed to providing a safe, healthy environment for all hotel guests and conference participants.
