The health and safety of WOCNext® 2022 attendees, speakers, exhibitors, and staff remain a top priority as we return to a hybrid event featuring both online and in-person education, networking, and activities. We are making preparations to ensure the highest standards of safety, sanitation, and operational effectiveness for all participants.


All attendees, speakers, exhibitors, and staff will be required to show proof of a complete COVID-19 vaccine cycle or the results of a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of the event.

We respect the fact that some people may have medical reasons or sincerely held religious beliefs for not getting vaccinated. That is why we will allow access to WOCNext for attendees who alternatively present proof of a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of the event. We feel that this approach is the most fair and equitable arrangement given the diverse demographics of our typical event attendee base.

All in-person attendees will be required to review and agree to our Health & Safety Waiver & Assumption of Risk during the registration process.

If you are experiencing CDC-recognized COVID-19 symptoms, have been diagnosed with COVID-19 within the two weeks leading up to the event, or have had close contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19, we ask that you please refrain from attending our event and join us virtually instead.

For those registered for the in-person meeting, you will receive a link to upload and verify your vaccine status or provide proof of a negative test as it gets closer to the event.


We will be following the CDC guidelines on masking for our event (as of 1/5/2022):

  • Everyone 2 years or older who is not fully vaccinated should wear a mask in indoor public places.
  • If you are fully vaccinated, to maximize protection and prevent possibly spreading COVID-19 to others, wear a mask indoors in public if you are in an area of substantial or high transmission.
  • In general, you do not need to wear a mask in outdoor settings.
    • In areas with high numbers of COVID-19 cases, consider wearing a mask in crowded outdoor settings and for activities with close contact with others who are not fully vaccinated.
  • People who have a condition or are taking medications that weaken their immune system may not be fully protected even if they are fully vaccinated. They should continue to take all precautions recommended for unvaccinated people, including wearing a well-fitted mask, until advised otherwise by their healthcare provider.


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has a checklist of considerations for travelers when making the decision to travel. When you travel, follow the standard protocols that have been implemented to prevent the spread of the coronavirus:

  • Clean your hands often.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Keep six feet distance from others.
  • Wear a face covering in public.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes.
