Health and Safety

Participants acknowledge that COVID-19 is an infectious virus that spreads easily through person-to-person contact and may cause serious illness to individuals who are unvaccinated and/or have certain medical risk factors. Federal and state public health authorities and ASMS have issued basic health and safety guidelines aimed at mitigating the spread of the virus. Participants understand attending ASMS 71st Conference on Mass Spectrometry and Allied Topics (annual conference) may increase the risk of contracting COVID-19. ASMS in no way warrants that the protective measures prescribed for ASMS annual conference will completely prevent exposure to the COVID-19 virus. Participants agree to follow all public health and safety guidelines to attend ASMS and freely and voluntarily assume the risk of COVID-19 exposure and infection.
