54th SPD Meeting
Note: The SPD will require in-person attendees to provide proof that they are fully vaccinated with the COVID-19 vaccination (as defined by the CDC; see below for exceptions). Furthermore, the SPD encourages all attendees to be fully up to date on all vaccinations and boosters, including the recently available bivalent COVID vaccine and seasonal influenza (flu) shot. Proof of COVID-19 vaccination will need to be provided before registering. Attendees who cannot provide this information will be subject to testing and masking requirements during the meeting. This policy is identical to the one that the host institution (the University of Minnesota) requires of its students and employees. For those who provide proof of vaccination, masks are not required during the meeting but are encouraged.
