The American College of Toxicology will follow current science-based information and is fully committed to taking appropriate precautions to provide a safe and healthy environment for participants of the Annual Meeting.

Proof of Vaccination

ACT has continued to monitor the COVID-19 situation along with local and federal guidelines. Based on current health mandates in Aurora, Colorado, the ACT meeting will not require proof of vaccination or proof of a negative PCR test. However, the local mandates could change; therefore, we ask that individuals bring a mask and proof of vaccination on their person. You may also want to consider bringing an at-home COVID-19 test kit with you.

Mask wearing is a prudent measure to prevent spread of viruses and is strongly encouraged during the meeting. Additionally, vaccination has been proven to be effective in preventing hospitalization and death from COVID-19. ACT expects that attendees use the CDC’s self-checker website daily. Should you feel unwell or suspect you have been exposed to COVID-19, we ask that you isolate.

Information on how to obtain free COVID-19 testing can be found on the Adams County website.
