COVID-19 Protocols for ANESTHESIOLOGY® 2022

Coming together safely for ANESTHESIOLOGY® 2022 is our #1 priority.

Be confident that ASA will implement appropriate health and safety protocols for attendees, exhibitors, and staff on-site at ANESTHESIOLOGY 2022 in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. If you cannot or choose not to comply with these health and safety requirements, we encourage you to participate in the Virtual Experience.

In coordination with the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center and New Orleans & Company, we are monitoring local and national public health guidance related to COVID-19.

Requirements for entry to ANESTHESIOLOGY 2022: Proof of vaccination or negative COVID-19 PCR test result from a testing center within 72 hours of badge pick up.

Proof of Vaccination

Only vaccines authorized (including emergency use authorization) by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or the World Health Organization (WHO) will be accepted.

  • A person is considered fully vaccinated:
    • 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, or
    • 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine.

Proof of Negative COVID-19 Test

If you are unable to meet the vaccine requirement, proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test result within three days of badge pick up is required.

Process for Proof of Vaccination or Negative Test

CLEAR Health Pass will be used to verify proof of vaccination, or a negative COVID-19 test result. A green pass will need to be shown in order to receive your ANESTHESIOLOGY 2022 badge.

If you already have the CLEAR mobile app from previous meetings please use the code ANES22 for ANESTHESIOLOGY 2022. Previous vaccinations uploaded into the CLEAR mobile app will be able to transfer into the ANESTHESIOLOGY 2022 Health Pass.

If you do not have the CLEAR mobile app, please download before picking up your badge. You can download the app or scan to download:
