PNS Annual Meeting: COVID-19 Policy

The Peripheral Nerve Society is highly committed to creating a safe and healthy environment for all attending the PNS Annual Meeting.  While we are excited to reunite with our friends and colleagues, we recognize that COVID-19 is still a risk. We’ve implemented a no-risk refund policy and safety protocols to help promote a safe on-site experience.

Specific health and safety measures will be posted as they become available here. Information on this page is subject to change.

Vaccination Requirement
All in attendance at our meeting (including guests) must complete the COVID-19 vaccination process with two doses of an acceptable vaccine.

For individuals living in the United States, acceptable vaccines will be all FDA authorized (or approved) vaccines for COVID-19.

Individuals living outside of the United States must comply with the current CDC requirements for proof of COVID-19 Vaccination for Air Passengers.

Unvaccinated individuals may select the virtual registration option online to access E-Poster Hall, Plenary Lectures, the Education Course, and Sponsored Symposia content.

Mask Requirement
In accordance with local regulations, face masks are no longer required for this meeting.  Face masks are now optional.  The PNS will provide a limited supply of masks, for those wishing to wear one.

    Social Distancing Indicators
    Upon arrival, attendees may choose to select a green, yellow, or red indicator to wear throughout the meeting to indicate a social distancing comfort level. The PNS requests all attendees be respectful of the preferences shown by their fellow attendees.

    • Green: High fives and handshakes are okay with frequent hand washing.
    • Yellow: Elbows only. Still being cautious.
    • Red: No contact. Maintain distance where possible.
