Health & Safety
Updated April 20, 2022
Your health and safety are a top priority. HRS has implemented a new policy for all in-person events requiring attendees to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination. All Heart Rhythm 2022 in-person attendees, exhibitors, and event staff must be fully vaccinated by April 14, 2022. Fully vaccinated is defined as two doses of a two dose vaccine such as Moderna or Pfizer, or one dose of a single dose vaccine such and J&J.
At this time, masks will be required by all attendees. Additionally, HRS will follow all city, state, and CDC guidelines at the time of the meeting.
If you are unable to meet these current requirements, please choose the Online-Only Experience registration option.
If you are already registered for the In-Person Experience registration and are unable to meet these requirements, you may change your In-Person Experience registration to Online-Only any time before April 21, 2022, with a refund in the difference in costs between the two experience options.
The city of San Francisco accepts the FDA approved vaccines or WHO authorized vaccines, which include:
- AstraZeneca/Oxford vaccine
- Johnson and Johnson
The city of San Francisco does not offer religious exemptions for proof of COVID-19 vaccination.
Providing Proof of Vaccinations
For U.S. in-person attendees: Heart Rhythm 2022 will use the CLEAR Health Pass mobile app to verify vaccination status. Please visit ClearMe.com/HealthPass, download the free mobile app, and complete your vaccination information. Then, 14 days prior to the meeting, HRS will send instructions to registered attendees to link their app to the Heart Rhythm 2022 event.
For international in-person attendees: The CLEAR Health Pass mobile app is available to U.S. users only. HRS is working on an alternative vaccine verification method for international attendees. At this point in time, please be prepared to show a hard copy proof of your vaccination status and photo ID when you check in at the registration desk.
Onsite COVID-19 Testing
If you would like to test yourself before heading home, visit the San Francisco Travel COVID Testing Center, conveniently located in the Moscone Center (south building) and open daily from 8:00 AM - 1:00 PM. Rapid antigen tests are $40, and rapid PCR tests are $150. Walk-ins are welcome, or you can make an appointment in advance.
