WiCyS recognizes the Omicron variant of the coronavirus and is mindful of keeping everyone safe. We are working in tandem with the Cleveland team to ensure that all of our conference attendees can safely learn, network, and grow together in person once again. We will be following both the state of Ohio’s and the hotel COVID-19 policies.

WiCyS 2022 requires all attendees to be vaccinated and that attendees pre-verify their vaccination status. We require the pre-booster dosing requirement. Boosters are NOT required. We are using a secure service provided by Aura to collect the information. They will provide us with a list of attendees who have been verified and no additional information. You MUST complete the vaccination verification process BEFORE attending WiCyS 2022. If you are not verified before the conference, your registration will be cancelled.

We have told our attendees that vaccinations will be required of all attendees so we are unable to make exceptions. If we allow an exemption, we cannot tell our attendees that all are vaccinated. There are many attendees who are attending because they know all are vaccinated. We understand that vaccination is a choice and restriction for some but for the good of our entire community our medical team has determined requiring all to be vaccinated is the best approach.
