We will finalise the exact policies when it comes to managing COVID closer to the conference to make sure we obide by relevant local regulations and ACM policies.
We can confirm now that:
- Masks will be required at all times when indoors (University of Auckland venue policy - likely to stay)
- All food will be served in such a way as to allow it to be eaten outside as both catering spaces have suitable tables and places to eat outside while December is a summer month in NZ
- NZ is likely to still require testing upon arrival and we will recommend attendees to do the RAT test every morning to ensure that they have a negative test before joining with the other conference attendees - you are likely to receive 4 free RAT test kits upon arrival to NZ at the border
NB! We will provide instructions to the closest pharamcies or supermarkets to buy extra RAT’s and will likely provide daily coloured stickers (6 colours for 6 days) that we will ask attendees to pick up every morning at the registration desk to put on their badges after showing a photo on their phone of the negative RAT taken on that day.
