COVID-19 Protocols for ANESTHESIOLOGY 2022
Coming together safely for ANESTHESIOLOGY 2022 is our #1 priority.
Be confident that ASA will implement appropriate health and safety protocols for attendees, exhibitors, and staff on-site at ANESTHESIOLOGY 2022 in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. If you cannot or choose not to comply with these health and safety requirements, we encourage you to participate in the Virtual Experience.
In coordination with the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center and New Orleans & Company, we are monitoring local and national public health guidance related to COVID-19.
Requirements for entry to ANESTHESIOLOGY 2022: Proof of vaccination or negative COVID-19 PCR or antigen test result from a testing center within 72 hours of badge pick up.
Proof of Vaccination

- A person is considered fully vaccinated:
- 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, or
- 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine.

If you are unable to meet the vaccine requirement, proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR or antigen test result within three days of badge pick up is required.
Process for Proof of Vaccination or Negative Test
