Covid-19 Policy and Procedures



As of December 15, 2022

The health and safety of AACR meeting/conference participants, as well as the patients and communities we serve, are among AACR’s highest priorities.

The AACR will follow CDC recommendations and will refer to COVID-19 Community Levels when informing participants about decisions pertaining to health and safety precautions for AACR meetings/conferences.

If you are attending an AACR meeting/conference, AACR strongly recommends that you take the following precautions:

  • Ensure that your COVID-19 vaccinations are up to date.
  • Take a rapid COVID test within 24 hours prior to your departure for the meeting/conference and do not attend in person if you test positive.
  • Do not attend the meeting/conference if you have symptoms of a respiratory infection and leave the meeting/conference if you develop such symptoms.
  • Wear a mask in crowded indoor settings. A limited number of KN95 masks will be available onsite for meeting/conference registrants.
  • Follow all health and safety protocols as required by the meeting/conference facility and local and state health departments.
  • Review and implement the current CDC guidance for protecting yourself from COVID-19.

If you are registered to attend the meeting/conference, you will have virtual access to all of the scientific sessions in the event that you are unable to attend in person due to illness or a positive COVID test. In-person registrants can request a change to their registration status to online-only at any time before the meeting/conference by email to [email protected] and receive a refund for any differences in rates. 

Registered attendees will be notified in advance of any changes to the meeting/conference precautions, recommendations, or requirements.
