Salt Lake City does not currently have an indoor mask mandate in place, and the CDC launched new guidance regarding COVID-19 Community Levels.  As a result, masks are not mandated in indoor settings, including the PVPMC conference. Wearing a mask is a personal choice and we ask that everyone makes their choice responsibly. Given the numbers of participants coming from all over the country and the world, we strongly encourage participants to wear KN95 or N95 masks throughout the event. All attendees should be mindful and respectful of other attendees’ health choices.

We strongly encourage all attendees who are eligible to receive the latest COVID-19 Booster in addition to being fully vaccinated.

We strongly encourage individuals to be tested or self-test for COVID immediately prior to traveling to PVPMC in Salt Lake City. Individuals who test positive should stay home and cancel your registration.

We will continue to monitor and update safety precautions for PVPMC regularly.

We will continue to assess the infection risks in Salt Lake City as well as the current status in the United States.
