With NAB Show set to return for its first in-person event since 2019, the organisers have been giving an update on Covid-19 requirements for this year’s event.
A negative test result or proof of full vaccination will be required for entry by all attendees, exhibitors, speakers and staff. Booster jabs are not required as part of “full vaccination,” but are recommended.
Masks will be recommended, but not required.
Touchless registration will be in place to get a badge. Meeting rooms and theatres will not be set at capacity to allow for socially distancing. Transparent partitions will be used in areas that require close contact between visitors.
“NAB is working with health officials and expert consultants to monitor the situation and apply appropriate health and safety protocols for the timeframe in which the show will be held,” NAB said on its website.
“This includes the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Southern Nevada Health District (SNHD), the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) and other appropriate global, federal, state and local health organisations.”
An OnMed telehealth station will be available at the LVCC in the North Hall to offer “on-demand, convenient and affordable” access to health care, including Covid-19 testing. NAB noted that the UMC Convention Testing Center is also very close to the convention centre and offers Covid-19 testing for travellers and attendees for $130, with results within 24 hours.
A free contact tracing mobile app from the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services can notify a person if they have likely been exposed to Covid-19.
