COVID-19 Safety Plan

illustration-announcements-2

We look forward to seeing you in Orlando and we are pleased to share our updated safety plan for the FMI 2022 Midwinter Executive Conference. As the COVID-19 landscape evolves, we remain dedicated to providing the safest and healthiest environment possible for all participants, and we ask for your partnership in that endeavor. FMI has implemented a layered approach to illness prevention and is recommending multiple control measures. Here’s our Action Plan. 

Action Plan

FMI will require either proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test, administered within 72 hours prior to arrival, or proof of full COVID-19 vaccination to attend the 2022 FMI Midwinter event. 

To manage this protocol, FMI has partnered with Health Pass by CLEAR, which provides a secure, digital proof of COVID-related health insights via the free CLEAR mobile app. All attendees, visitors and guests must complete FMI’s entry requirements using Health Pass by CLEAR. Instructions on downloading the CLEAR app to your mobile device can be found below.

Proof of vaccination will be accepted on-site for our international travelers.

Masks will not be required, but many of our attendees may choose to wear them. Please follow CDC guidelines. If you are at high risk for severe illness, please talk to your health care provider about mask-wearing and other precautions; stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines; and get tested if you have symptoms.

FMI staff will:

  • Verify that attendees' confidential negative test results or vaccination status has been uploaded to the CLEAR app. This information is provided to CLEAR only, not to FMI or its associates. 
  • Offer antigen tests for on-site screening by a health care provider for anyone wanting a test with or without symptoms. Onsite testing is expected for anyone with symptoms.
  • Provide sanitizing and disinfection materials for general attendee use.
  • Offer physical distance between chairs at meetings and education sessions.
  • Offer outdoor social events and/or well-ventilated spaces to facilitate social distancing.

We ask that attendees:

  • Don’t travel if you feel sick or if you’re experiencing symptoms associated with the flu or COVID-19 variants.
  • Consider getting vaccinated and including a flu shot!
  • Download the CLEAR app and upload your proof of vaccination if you’re vaccinated, and if you’re not vaccinated, upload your negative PCR test administered within 72 hours of arrival. 
  • If you have symptoms on site, see the on-site health care provider to be tested, and isolate if symptoms are significant and/or the test is positive.
  • Download the Midwinter event app prior to arrival for information and any onsite communications (link is forthcoming in the Know-Before-You-Go email). 
  

The Hyatt Regency Orlando:

  • Is committed to promoting a safe environment for our event. Visit Hyatt Regency’s Safety Policies, where you’ll find their increased hygiene and safety protocols and contactless services. 
  • Will follow procedures to minimize contact during food and beverage service.
  • Increase cleaning and disinfection across high-volume common areas.
