In full compliance with local laws and regulations, ESCMID is working on a variety of health and safety precautions for the congress to ensure maximum safety for its participants. This plan may include changes to the event layout, crowd management and/or timetables to ensure adequate physical distancing and/or physical barriers where necessary, as well as an updated cleaning and disinfection protocol for cleaning and housekeeping contractors.

    Mask               Wristband      Personalised Namebadge


Safety measurements for all participants

Access to the ECCMID 2022 will only be granted to those that fill the requirements for events as defined by Portuguese regulations (see section III). Once you satisfy these conditions, you will receive a wrist band that is valid for 1 day and allows you to re-enter the building on that day. Each morning you will need to repeat the check to receive a new wrist band. Please wear the wristband at all times to indicate that you have passed the daily check. ESCMID reserves the right to remove participants not complying with these regulations from the congress site. ESCMID assumes no liability of any kind in such cases.

It is the responsibility of ECCMID participants to ensure that they are in compliance with applicable requirements.

Throughout the venue you are obligated to wear a mask at all times. This applies not only to delegates but also to all suppliers and staff.
