Important Event Update
The safety and comfort of our community is of paramount importance, so we will be requiring that all Kidscreen Summit 2022 delegates, staff and visitors either:
- be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 with a vaccine approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or the World Health Organization (WHO);
- or undergo daily on-site rapid antigen testing for COVID-19 at their own cost.
VACCINATED DELEGATES will be required to upload their proof of full vaccination to a secure portal, developed and implemented with individual privacy as an overriding principle. The window for providing this documentation will be from November 29, 2021 to January 28, 2022. Delegates who fail to do so in time will be re-categorized as unvaccinated, levied a US$200 surcharge, and required to follow the process outlined below to access the event.
UNVACCINATED DELEGATES must register a negative test result via our on-site rapid antigen testing service DAILY in order to access the event. (These negative test results will be clearly noted on each unvaccinated delegate’s badge and are a requirement for entry each day.) Unvaccinated delegates will be required to pay for each of these tests, and payment will be collected directly by the on-site antigen testing service. Additionally, when they register for the event, unvaccinated delegates will be required to pay a US$200 surcharge to cover costs associated with providing the on-site antigen testing service, as well as extra security and staff to support this health & safety measure.
Subject to change, delegates will also be required to wear a mask in all indoor event spaces. Masks may only be removed to eat and/or drink in designated areas. Delegates must supply their own masks.
We will continue to take our lead from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on planning other baseline health & safety protocols for the event. These WILL include:
- Setting up a spacious outdoor meeting area for delegates to use, weather permitting
- Adhering to recommended norms for social distancing where possible, as well as observing all maximum capacity limits
- Providing ample touch-free hand-sanitizing stations throughout the venue
- Ensuring high cleanliness standards within all meeting rooms
- Eliminating self-serve buffets—boxed meals and attendant-served buffets will be available instead
In accordance with Florida state law, our event venue is currently unable to mandate that all hotel staff be vaccinated. However, hotel staff will be required to wear masks at all times during the event.

US border to reopen on November 8
Good news for international attendees! The United States is set to reopen its border to fully vaccinated people on Monday, November 8, and the new policy does not require foreign visitors to go into quarantine. Air travellers will need to show proof of vaccination upon arrival, as well as presenting a negative COVID-19 viral test result taken within three days of travel, prior to boarding their flight to the US.
In setting the qualifications for this new policy, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is recognizing vaccines that have full approval or emergency use authorization from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), or that have been approved for emergency use by the World Health Organization (WHO). Furthermore, travellers who have received mixed doses of these qualifying vaccines will also be permitted to enter the country.
We will update the Kidscreen Summit website's Travel page as more details are confirmed about which types of documentation will be accepted as proof of vaccination.
