Our colleagues and friends in the SSR are like our family. SSR is committed to the health and safety of our guests attending the Annual Meeting in St. Louis and outline steps we will take below to ensure that we can all enjoy and productive and health annual meeting. SSR will continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic, CDC recommendations and guidelines as well as state and local guidelines and we will provide updates as needed.

Below are the guidelines for health and safety at the Annual Meeting:

  1. Face coverings will be REQUIRED at all SSR indoor public settings regardless of vaccination status (Exceptions: when speaking/presenting in an official capacity at SSR events or when immediately eating/drinking). Face coverings will be required, regardless of current city, county, or state policies at the time of the meeting.
  2. In addition, SSR is requesting that all attendees be vaccinated or have a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of arriving at the meeting. SSR is asking for attestation of compliance by all in-person meeting participants by filling out this form, confirming vaccination or negative test status in addition to adherence to the face covering policy.
