    Health and Safety Policy

    ACAMS considers the health and safety of all those on-site at the 2022 ACAMS Australasia Conference as our priority.

     

    ACAMS is offering in-person attendance at the 2022 ACAMS Australasia Conference in Sydney, Australia in compliance with local government orders permitting such gatherings at this time. Under the guidelines and requirements from the Australian Government Department of Health, the Fullerton Hotel Sydney, and the New South Wales (NSW) COVID-19 Public Health Order, all guests and conference attendees will be required to wear masks indoors, regardless of vaccination status, and to scan the QR code for Covid Safe check in. All attendees and staff are expected to fully comply with applicable safety precautions, such as staying home if exhibiting signs of illness. Masks will be provided for anyone in need of one and sanitization stations will be available throughout the meeting space.

     

    Covid Safe QR Code can be accessed on the Service NSW app. The app is available for download on Google or Apple Stores.

     

    From 31 December 2021, after arriving fully vaccinated international passengers in NSW

     

    • Must get a COVID-19 rapid antigen test within 24 hours of arriving in NSW (and can stop self-isolating once they receive a negative result from this test) OR on or after day 6 after arriving in NSW.
    • People who are not fully vaccinated arriving in NSW from overseas must continue to go into 14-day mandatory quarantine.

    All international travellers who are fully vaccinated must comply with Australian Government entry requirements, including providing evidence of a negative nucleic acid amplification test, such as a COVID-19 PCR (nose and throat swab) test OR a rapid antigen test taken under medical supervision before scheduled departure to Australia.

     

    Currently NSW does not have any restrictions involving gatherings under 1,000 attendees. However, if hospitalization rates rise, NSW could re-instate capacity limits, which could impact the number of attendees permitted at the 2022 ACAMS Australasia Conference. If this were to occur, you would be notified as to the status of your registration. If state or local capacity restrictions require ACAMS to reduce the number of attendees at the 2022 ACAMS Australasia Conference, and you are unable to attend the event in person, you will be able to transfer your pass to the next in-person event. Refunds will not be available.

     

    If you test positive for COVID-19 during or after the conference, please contact Judy Jurado (JJurado@acams.org). They will provide your information to the local health department to support any contact tracing efforts. In accordance with local health department requirements, ACAMS will comply with any contact tracing and/or notification protocols if we are notified that any attendee has tested positive for COVID-19.
