Covid 19 Update for OCT West Coast 2022:
Your health and safety comes first, which is why we are strictly adhering to the latest guidance from the World Health Organization, CDC and San Mateo County Health, to ensure measures that will safeguard our guests, the industry, and the larger community as a whole. We can do this together.
Here’s how we are making OCT West Coast a COVID-safe event in 2022:
Due to the Omicron variant all attendees must test negative in order to enter OCT West Coast this year. The test may be PCR or Rapid Antigen Test and must be within 24 hrs of entering the event. Attendees may use a rapid test at home (or in their hotel room), and we will also have rapid testing available onsite upon arrival. This will ensure the safest possible environment for all attendees.
Face masks are mandatory throughout the event space as per guidance from San Mateo County Health. This is for all times when not eating or drinking and will be strictly enforced. Masks will be readily available onsite.
Lunches and other refreshments will be served as “grab and go”
Exchange of contact information with exhibitors will be contactless. Contactless agendas will also be available via QR codes placed around the event
Enhanced deep cleaning and disinfection before, during and after event for ongoing sanitisation especially in/on high contact areas and fixtures.
Hand washing and sanitisation are easier and more accessible than ever at our events. You’ll find frequent sanitisation stations for disinfection and peace of mind.
Seating will be spread out in the session rooms, exhibition and other areas of the event
We strongly ask for all participating attendees to be fully vaccinated. However with the rise of the Omicron variant and the new requirement for all attendees to test negative before entering, vaccination is not mandatory at this event.
We’re looking forward to a secure, healthy and fun future for events in 2022 and beyond!
