COVID-19 Guidelines

There is risk of exposure to the Covid-19 virus when traveling, using public spaces and participating in events, and this includes the ISPGR 2022 Congress. ISPGR plans to ensure the well-being of all attendees and its staff. We’re facilitating measures that will ensure optimal health and sanitary conditions in all areas where in-person interactions take place.

International travel:

Global travel has changed substantially as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes how we travel, the costs associated with travel, as well as the frequency of flights we have, up until now, taken for granted. Before you travel to Montreal for ISPGR, please consider planning ahead and be proactive in preparing for your trip. Check with your institution on most current policy on travel and funding, along with the best way to reach your destination. If you are planning to purchase travel insurance, please check with your provider if insurance covers COVID related delays/cancellations/costs (many don’t). Below are some reminders for our international attendees:

Traveling to Canada from your country of origin:

As ISPGR 2022 is an international event, all attendees must also follow Canada’s guidance and protocols on Travel, Testing and Borders: click on the link for the most up-to-date travel to Canada information

Departing Canada for your country of origin:

Please remember to regularly check the rules of re-entry into the country you are traveling to post Congress. Pre-testing before embarking on your homeward journey may be in place, and the possibility of additional time restraints will need to be taken into account when planning your trip.

 

Montreal COVID-19 rules:

In addition to the international travel guidelines, ISPGR attendees must also adhere to the most up-to-date COVID-19 guidelines for Meetings held in Quebec

If the ISPGR Board are uncomfortable with potential relaxation of the above guidelines, we may revise our policy to more stringent measures to ensure the safety and well being of all onsite persons. An email outlining all confirmed measures will be sent to all attendees in advance of arriving in Montreal.

By traveling to and participating as an attendee to ISPGR 2022, attendees are acknowledging the risks, and it is understood that all attendees and presenters will adhere to the following instructions:

Do not attend the conference if you:
1.  Are showing COVID-19 symptoms such as, but not limited to: fever, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, unusual fatigue, sore throat or headache, loss or change in smell or taste.
2.  Have tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 7 days.
3. You are unable to comply with the Covid-19 travel requirements to gain entry to into Canada.
