COVID-19 Safety Measures

Updated 8 December 2020


ESCMID is implementing measures to ensure that onsite participation at ECCMID is as safe as possible.


Among the planned measures are the following:

- Surgical masks will be available free of charge for all registered participants at the congress, and will be required to be worn inside the venue if required by local authorities. (A limited supply of FFP2 masks will be available upon request and consultation with the on-site doctor's station.)
Ethanol-based hand sanitizer will be available at regular stations across the venue.
- An increased regimen of cleaning and disinfection of high-traffic areas and restrooms will be undertaken by specific additional personnel.
- Physical distancing between participants and chairs in seated areas will be enacted according to local regulations.


ESCMID will continue to be in contact with local authorities and the venue to ensure that any and all applicable regulations are adhered to, and this page will be updated as these regulations are updated.
