Updated Nov. 23, 2021
NBAA’s highest priority is the health and safety of all event participants. This resource details the current requirements for all participants at the 2022 NBAA Leadership Conference and the steps taken by NBAA to ensure a safe, interactive and successful event for all attendees. Additional details will be provided in advance of the event.
All Leadership Conference participants will be required to present proof of one of the following upon each entry to the venue:
- Full vaccination against COVID-19, or
- A negative result from a COVID-19 lab test conducted within the prior 48 hours
2022 NBAA Leadership Conference Vaccination Deadline
To be fully vaccinated for the 2022 NBAA Leadership Conference, you must receive the final dose of an approved COVID-19 vaccine by Jan. 24, 2022.
NBAA is working with CLEAR to allow participants to securely provide proof of full vaccination or a negative test. More information on using Health Pass by CLEAR will be available in advance of the event.
Proof of Full Vaccination
People are considered fully vaccinated:
- 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer/COMIRNATY or Moderna vaccines, or
- 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine
In addition to Pfizer/COMIRNATY, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson/Janssen, accepted vaccines include those authorized for use by the World Health Organization, including vaccines produced by AstraZeneca/Oxford, Covishield, Sinopharm and Sinovac.
Mixed COVID-19 vaccine schedules of vaccines recognized by the World Health Organization are permitted to establish full vaccination status.
Proof of Negative Lab Test Result
Participants choosing this option will be required to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 result from a lab test. Results will be valid for entry for 48 hours from the time the test was conducted.
Additional details on providing proof of a negative lab test result will be available in advance of the event.
Individuals who do not present proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 must wear a mask at the 2022 NBAA Leadership Conference. While masks are not required for fully vaccinated individuals, current guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention encourages their use for everyone in indoor public settings, regardless of vaccination status.
Masks must completely cover the nose and mouth, fit snugly and be secured to the head. Masks must be a solid piece of material without slits, exhalation valves or punctures.
Important COVID-19 Information
COVID-19, a highly infectious disease caused by the novel coronavirus, is currently classified as a pandemic by public health authorities. It is associated with severe symptoms including acute respiratory issues, severe damage to lungs and other organs and death. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person, and individuals over age 65 and people of any age who have certain underlying medical conditions are at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19. COVID-19 is not fully understood at this time, and understanding of the symptoms, risks and spread of the disease may change over time. Although NBAA will take all reasonable safety precautions to protect the health of participants, because thousands of attendees are expected, NBAA cannot guarantee that participants will not be exposed to COVID-19 during attendance at the event.
COVID-19 Liability Waiver/Assumption of Risk
All participants at the 2022 NBAA Leadership Conference acknowledge that their participation is completely voluntary and that they understand the dangers of COVID-19 and the risks of exposure described above. All participants further acknowledge that they assume all risks associated with COVID-19 in connection with attendance at the 2022 NBAA Leadership Conference, including risks to their own health and the health of others with whom they may come in contact during or after the 2022 NBAA Leadership Conference (“Assumed Risks”).
