COVID-19 Safety Measures at AAPA 2022

We are committed to making this in-person meeting as safe as possible for all our attendees, exhibitors, sponsors, vendors, staff, and speakers. Here are the ways we will work together to make AAPA 2022 safe for everyone.

Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination or Negative COVID-19 Test Required

AAPA is requiring proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of the start of AAPA 2022 in Indianapolis in order to attend. People are considered fully vaccinated:

  • 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or
  • 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine.

For those individuals who are not vaccinated and still wish to attend in-person, proof of a negative RT-PCR test or Rapid Antigen test* within 72 hours of your conference check-in is required.

*At-home, self-administered rapid antigen tests will not be accepted. Only rapid antigen test results provided by a third party will be accepted.

A link to our COVID-19 Safety Portal is on your registration dashboard. Please note: To enter yourself in the portal, you MUST use the same email address you used to register for AAPA 2022.  Please upload a picture of your vaccination card as soon as possible.  Or, if you intend to provide proof of a negative test, please wait until within the 72-hour window to upload your documentation.

Please note that the below safety measures are subject to change based on guidance from the CDC and local authorities at the time of the conference.

Individual Accountability

AAPA has preventive measures in place to reduce the spread of COVID-19. AAPA cannot, however, guarantee that attendees will properly social distance and that its attendees will not become infected with COVID-19.

By submitting an attendee registration for AAPA 2022, attendees must acknowledge and agree that they are fully responsible for their own safety and actions while participating in the national conference and recognize that they may be at risk of contracting COVID-19 through no fault of AAPA.

If you have tested positive for COVID-19, are waiting for COVID-19 test results, have COVID-19 symptoms, or have had close contact with a person who has tested positive for or who has symptoms of COVID-19, please stay home.

Be sure to practice everyday preventive actions, including but not limited to social distancing, washing hands often, and monitoring your health daily.


Masks are optional for attendees to wear at AAPA 2022. AAPA will not be providing masks, and if an attendee chooses to wear one they will need to bring their own.

AAPA will continue to follow CDC and local state guidelines regarding masking and will update the policy on this page if guidelines change closer to the conference date.

On-site Safety

The Indiana Convention Center is following their own safety procedures.

All official AAPA hotels have created new and improved systems and cleaning protocols. You can read about what the hotels are doing by going to their websites. See the list of hotels here.

Public health guidance on preventing the transmission of COVID-19 continues to evolve, and AAPA will base its on-site protocol on the latest guidance from the CDC in addition to local regulations in Indianapolis. This page will continue to be updated as needed. Be sure to check out our FAQs and reach out to [email protected] with any questions.
