The full NSC COVID-19 Health and Safety Event Management Procedure can be accessed here.
The general health of our attendees maintains our top priority. NSC continues to evaluate the COVID-19 pandemic and the level of risk to our employees, customers and visitors, their families and the community at large. The risk of serious illness or hospitalization as a result of COVID-19 infection has significantly decreased in the US over the last several months. Therefore, after consulting the latest CDC guidance, we adjusted our procedures to align with the current situation while creating a safe and inclusive event experience.
Yes. Everyone exhibiting, attending or participating in NSC-affiliated meetings must provide a negative COVID-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test result taken within 72 hours of the start of the event or provide proof of full vaccination by uploading an image of a government issued COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card.  Attendees are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after their second dose in a two-dose series (such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines) OR two weeks after a single-dose vaccine (such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine).
Vaccinations are an effective method of preventing contraction and transmission of COVID-19. Breakthrough cases in vaccinated individuals are rare and vaccinated individuals are less likely to pass on the illness to others if they are infected, according to the CDC.
PCR test results are required for entry into the event. We encourage all attendees to make proper arrangements as it may take several days to receive your results. We are requiring a negative test result within 72 hours of the event. 
No. Onsite testing will not be available. 
At this time, you are not required to wear a face covering/mask. NSC is aligned with CDC guidelines and will base requirements on event location and community risk. Attendees should be prepared to wear a properly fitting face covering, as face coverings may be required if community risk of COVID-19 is “high.”
Yes. During the registration process all attendees, exhibitors and speakers must confirm understanding and acknowledge the risk of exposure and contraction of potentially dangerous diseases, including COVID-19, by attending the event. All must also agree to release NSC of any liability related to attendance.
CrowdPass is a health-clearance platform. Their intuitive web application is used for clearing attendees through the uploading of negative test results and/or full vaccination proof. CrowdPass' hosting server Heroku, is not only HIPAA compliant, but also has the following certifications: ISO 27001, 27017, 27018 as well as SOC 1, 2, and 3 Certified. You can rest assured that your data is safe and secure. In addition to the hosting server, the event host will not have access to see your private medical records on our system. Only trained staff will be able to review and approve. Within 30 days of the event's completion all of your data will be wiped from the database.
CrowdPass offers their service through a web platform that does not require any downloads for use. All attendees are required to submit their information through CrowdPass.
Yes, at this time the 2022 NSC Southeast Safety Conference & Expo will be held in-person. We are closely monitoring developments, mandates and best practices from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), local public health officials, and the Ernest L Morial Convention Center in New Orleans for guidance on how best to ensure the safety and health of all exhibitors, attendees, partners and staff on-site at the show.  A detailed plan will be communicated closer to the show.
