COVID-19 Health & Safety Precautions

Participating in the AACS 2022 Annual Scientific Meeting during the ongoing pandemic carries risk due to the contagious nature of the COVID-19 virus and the fact that the Meeting will be held indoors with a large number of attendees. Attendees and guests are required to either be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or have received a negative COVID test at least 1 week prior to the start of the Meeting. The AACS relies on attendees’ and guests’ representations and does not independently verify vaccination status or negative test results.

“Fully vaccinated” is defined by the CDC as of 1/10/22 as follows, “People who are fully vaccinated are those who received the second dose in a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine series or one dose of the J&J/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine.”

In addition, attendees and guests must agree to follow all required health and safety guidelines, protocols, policies, regulations, and mandates relating to attendance at the Meeting, including, but not limited to, World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines, statutes, regulations, and other mandates applicable to the locale of the Meeting, as well as any additional requirements imposed by the AACS or Venue (regardless of whether international, national, or local laws allow otherwise).

Masks will be required in indoor spaces unless actively eating or drinking in accordance with current local regulations.

The AACS is following the guidelines and restrictions as set forth by Clark County within the city limits of Las Vegas. The Mandalay Bay is responsible for the enforcement of these guidelines.

Attendees and guests must monitor their own health status and not attend the Meeting if symptomatic of COVID-19 in any way or if they believe they have been exposed to someone with COVID-19.

On-Site COVID Testing

The hotel offers several options to guests for on-site testing.

MGM Resorts is partnering with Community Ambulance to offer COVID-19 Testing by appointment in The Shoppes at Mandalay Place and/or In-Room COVID-19 Testing for registered hotel guests.
