DUTY OF CARE

 

AAPC will follow current best practices for association meetings by requiring proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test for entry to the Pollies conference in Las Vegas. The State of Nevada also requires masks to be worn indoors.

 

AAPC will partner with inHouse Physicans (iHP), a leading health security firm with 30 years of experience providing onsite medical services at meetings & events globally. iHP’s clients include McDonald’s, Coca-Cola, The Home Depot, Walmart, Boeing, VISA, Dow, and Intel, among many others.

 

iHP will provide the following services to all onsite attendees, presenters, exhibitors, sponsors, staff, vendors and guests of the 2021 Pollies conference in Las Vegas, NV:

  • Best-in-class Vaccine Verification App (compliant with HIPAA and all privacy regulations) to enable participants to securely upload vaccination records and respond to automated daily health survey for verification by iHP medical team. Participants may also bring their vaccination card on site for verification.
  • Verification of negative test results – testing done in advance must have been administered within 72 hours of arrival to the meeting
  • Onsite Medical Professional with “Go Bag” and First Aid Emergency Care
  • Physicians on call via Tele-Health including prescription generation

 

To avoid long lines at the conference, AAPC and iHP will begin contacting registered conference attendees to complete the vaccine verification process in advance.

 

Effective June 1, Las Vegas has removed all restrictions involving capacity limits, large gatherings and more.

 

In an effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, effective July 30, the State of Nevada has mandated that everyone, including fully vaccinated individuals, wear a mask in public indoor settings, including resorts and casinos, restaurants, bars, showrooms and meeting spaces. The directive aligns with the latest Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance related to mask requirements.

 

Masks are also still required on all public transportation and transportation hubs per CDC guidance.

 

Hand sanitizer stations are available throughout the Caesars Palace hotel, convention space and meeting rooms.  Responsible food & beverage/seating/barriers for meeting spaces and appropriate signage/floor decals to reinforce spatial distancing and other safety reminders will also be present as appropriate.

 

Should new COVID-19 restrictions be put in place in Las Vegas, AAPC will abide by the protocols that are put in place.
