HIMSS21 to require masks for all attendees

As previously announced, proof of full COVID-19 vaccination is also required for attendees, exhibitors, speakers and staff.  

According to HIMSS, more than 18,000 people have registered for the digital and in-person experience, with new registrations continuing to roll in.  

HIMSS21 will also include the following safety protocols, according to the organization:  

  • All primary venues within the HIMSS21 campus use hospital-grade (or better) air ventilation systems, as well as GS Neutral Disinfectant Cleaners on all high-touch areas.
  • Socially distanced seating options will be provided in all venues.
  • Exhibit hall will include wider aisles on the floor, with booths spaced apart.
  • Attendees, exhibitors and staff must complete an on-site attestation confirming compliance with all health and safety protocols.

On-site COVID-19 testing will be available.  

"HIMSS is monitoring the evolving public health guidance regarding large gathering settings and will continue to provide updates and additional guidance," wrote representatives on the Safety Hub. "HIMSS continues to ask all attendees, exhibitors, and HIMSS staff to follow all applicable regulations and make informed choices about travel, onsite and external engagement."
