2022 Annual Meeting: Health and safety travel resources

The first priority of the Academy is the safety of all those who attended the Annual Meeting

The American Academy of Dermatology cares about the health and safety of our members and their patients as well as our partners and staff and continues to follow all CDC guidelines related to COVID-19, as well as state, local, and facility guidelines and mandates. On March 30, we learned that a few individuals who attended the Annual Meeting in Boston tested positive for COVID-19. We want you to be aware of this situation so that you can self-monitor for development of symptoms and get a COVID-19 test if you are concerned. If think you may have been exposed, or have tested positive, we encourage you to follow the CDC’s guidelines on quarantine and isolation.

Air travel alerts

Travelers should allow for more time prior to departure and be aware that the TSA Security Checkpoint process has implemented procedures to reduce direct contact, increase social distancing, and allow for personal hand sanitizer.

Currently, all major airlines have a face covering policy and travelers are highly encouraged to bring their own. Travelers are encouraged to review the specific information provided by each airline they are flying.

Hotel and lodging

The majority of major hotel chains have introduced new cleaning and social distancing standards. Additionally, the CDC has provided recommendations on hotel travel.

Prior to departure, travelers should be aware various hotel services such as check-in, fitness centers, public areas, and food service — including breakfast availability — may be closed or modified. Travelers are encouraged to contact their individual hotel prior to arrival to understand the specific local practices and safety protocols in place.
