How we’re keeping you safe

We are committed to going above and beyond standard requirements to deliver you a safe event where your focus can be on learning and development. Here’s what we have planned as of today:

Vaccinations Required

As a result of a poll to registered attendees and the Guild community, we’ve made the decision to require everyone who plans to join us at DevLearn 2021 to provide proof of full vaccination.

We also recognize some may not be vaccinated due to health issues or religious beliefs. Those that fall into these specific categories can request an exception to attend with an on-site COVID-19 test. Learn more about this change and stay tuned for additional details to come.

Daily Health Screenings

Daily health screenings completed by all attendees before entering the conference each day

Masks Required

Masks worn at all times within the conference center unless actively eating, drinking, or facilitating a session

IHP On-Site Support

InHouse Physicians (IHP) will support our expanded Health & Safety protocols including vaccination verification, daily health screenings, and temperature checks.

Your Health & Safety Action Plan

1. Register for the conference and then complete your IHP vaccination verification survey from IHP.

2. Make your way to DevLearn! On your first morning, complete your Daily Health Screening sent to you via text. (You’ll complete this check daily.)

3. Put on your mask and head to the IHP Registration Desk, where you’ll check-in with your vaccination verification email and “ALL CLEAR” health screening status. 

4. Choose a wristband color to distinguish your level of comfort and also verify you’ve already checked-in. As long as you are wearing the wristband, you will not be asked to show your vaccination verification email when entering the conference center.

5. Enjoy DevLearn and stay safe!

Note: As previously communicated, we are allowing people to apply for an exception to the vaccine requirement for DevLearn 2021 in cases where medical or religious reasons prevent someone from receiving the vaccine. If you would like to request an exception so you can attend DevLearn via proof of negative test results, please feel free to reach out to David Kelly.
