Covid Policy

Your health and safety matter.

Your well-being is our top priority, and we are dedicated to ensuring attendees and guests have a safe environment at JPro22. We will be requiring vaccination in compliance with U.S. and Canadian vaccine and booster recommendations. (If you have a medical exemption, we ask that you reach out to us at 

We are hosting this event in coordination with the policies and procedures established by the CDC and the local government. Masks and social distancing will be implemented as needed in accordance with the requirements of the City of Cleveland, State of Ohio, the CDC and the Huntington Convention Center and our hotels. Meeting and event space layouts will be designed to allow for additional distancing and the hotels have established Clean Stay Programs that will provide additional protection. We are working with a public health advisor who has guided us over the planning period. We may request or require additional protocols up until the conference begins.

Since 2020, the Huntington Convention Center has made multiple upgrades to create the safest indoor environment for guests and employees. Check out this video to learn more.

Masking and other physical distancing measures

As of April 21st, the CDC’s current COVID-19 Community Level for Cuyahoga County (Cleveland’s county) has been designated as LOW. In accordance with CDC guidelines, no masking or other physical distancing measures will be required during the conference. If the CDC designation for Cuyahoga County remains at LOW or MEDIUM on Thursday, April 28th, masking will remain optional. If the designation moves to high, conference participants will be informed, and masking policies will change. If you would like to wear a mask during the conference, you are welcome to do so.

If you are feeling unwell at the conference

If you feel unwell during the conference, you should remain in your room or immediately return to your room to isolate. JPro22 encourages anyone who is feeling unwell with COVID-related symptoms to procure and administer a rapid antigen test. You may wish to bring one or more extra tests for your personal use in consideration of this possibility. Please do not attend the conference if you feel unwell in any way.
