Summit Covid-19 Safety Protocols

To fulfill our contractual obligation to the Holiday Inn San Jose-Silicon Valley, we must hold our 2022 Summit (Jan. 24-26) in person. 

Knowing things can change between now and late January, we are moving forward with the following plan for the Summit based on county, state and CDC policies and guidelines.


Before entering the conference areas, all attendees, regardless of age, are required to show proof of full COVID vaccination (final dose administered no later than Jan. 10) or of a negative result from a COVID test, taken within 72 hours of performance time.


“Fully vaccinated” means you have received your final vaccine dose on or before Jan. 10, 2022. Proof of vaccination can be a physical vaccination card, a photo on your phone of your vaccination card, or a digital vaccination record. You may request a digital vaccination record at


PCR or rapid antigen test results will be accepted, as long as the test is taken within 72 hours of the event. Negative test result documentation must be in writing and from a medical professional or laboratory. A photo of your negative result documentation will also be accepted.

Negative results from a home test that are accessed through a CDC-approved mobile app will also be accepted, as long as the name on the results documentation matches the name on your photo ID. Following is info on two tests that can be used with apps that meet the documentation requirement for matching a name with a photo ID:

Home test results that are not from those CDC-approved mobile apps will not be accepted.  


A driver’s license or other photo ID will also be required for entry for all adults. A photo ID will not be required for minors who are accompanied by an adult. Minors will need to present proof of full vaccination or a negative test result, as previously outlined.


All attendees, regardless of age and vaccination status, are required to wear masks inside the hotel at all times (except when consuming food or beverage). Prolonged periods of mask removal are not permitted for eating or drinking—masks must be worn between bites and sips. Acceptable masks are surgical, cloth, or (K) N95. Gaiters, bandanas, face shields or masks with an exhalation valve will not be acceptable.


Please arrive 45 minutes prior to the conference start time each day to allow staff to check proof of vaccination or negative test result.
