Walter E. Washington Convention Center
Washington, D.C.
May 16-19, 2022

Safety of meeting attendees is our top priority
Public health guidance on preventing the transmission of COVID-19 continues to evolve and ASGCT will base its on-site protocols on the latest guidance from the CDC in addition to local regulations in Washington DC and the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. 

ASGCT is requiring its staff and all on-site attendees to wear masks regardless of whether or not it is required by law at the time of the meeting. Masks must be covering both mouth and nose at all times except when actively eating or drinking. The mask requirement applies to the convention center, hotels, shuttle buses, or anywhere an in-person ASGCT event is being held.

Disposable surgical masks will be available for free if you do not have proper facial covering. 

Physical Distancing
Meeting rooms will be set in theater style at their maximum capacity. Attendees can choose to sit next to someone or distance themselves if they prefer more personal space. All in-person attendees will have access to the virtual platform to view sessions in real time if they feel uncomfortable with the space in meeting rooms. 

Even though the science now shows that COVID-19 transmission is unlikely to occur from touching surfaces, convention center staff will regularly clean and disinfect surfaces to promote healthy sanitation.

The convention center also has hand sanitizer locations which are stocked and deployed strategically. They are monitored and replenished frequently.
