Health & COVID Protocols at Conference – PLEASE READ CAREFULLY 

  1. It is mandatory to wear a mask indoors and while not eating at lunchtime. In outdoor settings, masks are recommended but not required.  
  2. It is encouraged to keep a distance of 1 meter from others on a regular basis. 
  3. If you are feeling ill, you must self-isolate in your bedroom immediately and not leave your room until you are feeling better. Please contact the hotel reception desk from the bedroom phone to inform them you are ill.  
  4. If you wish to take a COVID test, a self-test must be taken in your bedroom. If the result is positive, then you can book a PCR test. Please contact the hotel front desk from your bedroom phone and they will provide further instructions on how to do so. It is a good idea to bring several self-tests with you or you can ask the conference nurse for a test. 
  5. Our conference nurse is available to facilitate visiting the local hospital (Soonchunhyang University Hospital, which is 10 minutes away) where PCR tests are available.    
  6. If an attendee tests positive for Covid, they must enter 7 days of self-quarantine. If they are staying at the Hyatt they must stay within their bedroom and a non-contact meal service will be provided at your own cost. The conference will continue with monitoring of attendees’ well-being.  
  7. All expenses incurred due to COVID, or illness are the responsibility of the attendee, including room service meals, PCR tests, transportation to hospital and medical attention.  For this reason, we strongly suggest that attendees obtain Travel Protection Insurance that covers illness for any reason.

Regardless of test type, the results must contain the following information: name as it appears on the passport, date of birth, test method, test date, test result, date of issuance, and name of testing center. 

All arriving passengers are required to take a PCR test after arrival regardless of vaccination or age and must upload the results into the Q-Code System within three days of entry into Korea.
