COVID-19 Summit Guidelines

STC requires all attendees, speakers, exhibitors, and staff to:

  • Provide proof of vaccination. A negative COVID test will not be accepted in lieu of proof of vaccination.
  • Wear a face mask that completely covers the mouth and nose at all times in public spaces, except when actively eating or drinking.
  • Wear the Summit badge throughout the event.

Participants must bring proof of full COVID-19 vaccination (physical card or photo of card) as well as a photo ID (driver’s license or passport) when traveling to Summit. For this event, “full COVID-19 vaccination” is defined as one shot of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine or two shots of the Moderna, Pfizer, or Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccines, preferably with a booster, if applicable. Proof of vaccination is required for entry to all restaurants and bars in Chicago and suburban Cook County, including the hotel restaurants, per current Chicago/Cook County Health Order.
