Frequently Asked Questions
How will CII be verifying vaccination of attendees?
We are partnering with Health Pass by CLEAR to verify vaccination status for all of our onsite event attendees and staff. Search for CLEAR in your app store to download
and get started. Click here to learn more about CLEAR. Your pass can be created up to 3 weeks before the meeting; please plan to complete this before you arrive on site.
What does “fully vaccinated” mean?
According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), people are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after their last vaccine does. If you received a single
dose vaccine (ie, Johnson & Johnson), you are fully vaccinated two weeks after your shot. If you received a vaccine that requires two shots (ie, Pfizer or Moderna), you are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after your second shot.
If you don’t meet these requirements, you are NOT fully vaccinated, and will not be able to enter the event space.
Will CII accommodate medical or religious exemptions?
Unfortunately, we are not able to make exceptions. If for any reason you cannot or will not be fully vaccinated at the time of the event, you will not be able to enter
the event space. We welcome you to participate using our virtual platform.
I am not vaccinated, but I can provide a negative test – can I attend in person?
Unfortunately, we are not able to make exceptions. A negative test is not a substitute for vaccination. If you are not fully vaccinated
at the time of the event, you will not be able to enter the event space. We welcome you to participate using our virtual platform.
I am not vaccinated, but I have already had COVID – can I attend in person?
Unfortunately, we are not able to make exceptions. The CDC recommends vaccination for COVID, even for those who have already been infected.
If you are not fully vaccinated at the time of the event, you will not be able to enter the event space. We welcome you to participate using our virtual platform.
TRAVEL & TESTING
I’m from outside the United States, am I allowed to attend in person?
Travel from certain countries to the US is currently prohibited for non-US citizens. Please review the CDC’s guidelines on Travelers Prohibited
from Entry to the United States for more information.
I’m coming from outside the United States – what are the requirements for entry?
The United States requires all international travelers, including US citizens and legal permanent residents, to get a viral test
no more than 3 days before you travel by air, and to show your negative result OR proof of recovery from COVID-19 in the 90 days preceding travel to the airline before you board your flight. Please check with your airline for more information.
I’m coming from outside the United States, what is the policy for me to return to my country of origin?
If traveling internationally, check with your country of origin’s Office of Foreign Affairs or Ministry of
Health or the US Department of State, Bureau of Consular Affairs, Country Information page for details about entry requirements and restrictions for arriving travelers. Follow all entry requirements for your destination and provide any required
or requested health information. If you do not follow your destination’s requirements, you may be denied entry.
I need to have a COVID-19 PCR test before I return home. Where do I do that?
Please visit the CDC website for a directory of state health departments. These local health departments will have the latest information on testing
facilities. Appointments may be required, and the type of viral COVID-19 tests offered may differ by location.
ATTENDING IN PERSON

Is there anything special I need to bring with me to the event?
We recommend brining a copy of your vaccination card and a photo ID as a backup to your Health Pass by CLEAR. You may also want to bring a mobile device or laptop
to join in some of our virtual sessions and speaker Q&As (please make sure your devices are fully charged; we do our best to make outlets available but cannot guarantee them).
How should we greet and meet our fellow attendees?
