With respect to COVID-19, what are the in-person attendee requirements for the SGO 2022 Annual Meeting?
SGO COVID-19 precautions are available on our website. We’re sharing updated expectations and precautions for the Annual Meeting below so that all members are prepared to easily share their vaccine status and their personal preference on distancing and greeting styles.

  • Attendees must present a valid vaccination card or negative COVID test (within 48 hours of March 18, 2022) to obtain your badge credentials and participate in the Annual Meeting. Attendees may show proof of vaccination status or test results digitally (i.e., via a health care provider app on your phone or device) or present paper copies, provided they are clearly legible. SGO will accept both PCR and antigen tests approved by the FDA for emergency use; self-administered, at-home antigen tests will not be accepted.
  • Attendees will be considered fully vaccinated two weeks after they receive the second dose in a two-dose series (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna) or two weeks after they receive a single-dose vaccine (Johnson & Johnson/Janssen).

What pandemic precautions are being employed at the Annual Meeting based on the Omicron variant?

  • SGO will provide masks at registration. While masks are not currently required at the Phoenix Convention Center or our conference hotels, wearing a mask at the conference venue will be required for all SGO member attendees and staff.
  • Hand sanitizer stations will be placed throughout the conference venues.
  • Attendees can choose a color-coded band to let others know their comfort level with interaction (hugs—green band, handshakes—yellow band, six-feet distance—red band, etc.).
  • Staff will prepare a list of nearby testing facilities for attendees, which will be available at registration and on the event platform.

What are the Phoenix Convention Center and other Annual Meeting venues doing to maximize patron comfort and safety during the meeting?
