Effective: July 1, 2022 – Subject to Change

To promote the safety of everyone at the event, ACS will follow the guidelines and requirements of the CDC and other local regulations regarding COVID safety practices. This Attendee Safety Plan may change from time-to-time until the start of and during the ACS Innovations in Polymer Science and Soft Matter Summit.

IMPORTANT:  In light of events surrounding COVID-19, this is an appropriate time to remind ourselves of the risks incident to participating in the ACS Innovations in Polymer Science and Soft Matter Summit. Even with every reasonable precaution to keep you safe, as outlined by the CDC, ACS cannot fully eliminate all risks of harm to attendees or guarantee their safety, especially from risks posed by COVID-19 or its variant strains. Ultimately, you are responsible for your own safety.

Failure to adhere to the following requirements could lead to removal from the venue or disciplinary action.
