Conference General Information

Information for In-Person Attendees
  • Directions and Parking
  • Self-screening and Mask Guidance
    • Beginning Sept. 26, 2022, UNMC updated its COVID-19 guidance in response to several weeks of lower COVID-19 risk levels across the state and the availability of COVID-19 bivalent boosters. 

      Masking and social distancing are recommended but optional.

      As an academic health sciences center, UNMC asks people to remain respectful of anyone who continues to mask in order to minimize their risk. Masks are recommended for individuals who are immunocompromised and/or at higher risk of severe disease, as well as those who are more comfortable masking or choose to do so for any other reason.
    • Monitoring for symptoms of COVID-19 is strongly recommended. We ask that you self-screen prior to coming on campus. For campus visitors, please use the 1-Check COVID app available to iOS and Android users. For UNMC/Nebraska Medicine employees and students, please use the 1-Check UNMC app.
