Article

Javits Center safety requirements updated in line with New York State and New York City guidelines.

Vision Expo East organizers announce that proof of COVID-19 vaccinations and face covering will not be required to attend the March 31-April 3, 2022 event. Health and safety guidelines were updated in response to new requirements of the Javits center, New York State and New York City.

“The health and safety of everyone in attendance at Vision Expo continues to be our priority,” said Fran Pennella, Vice President, Vision Expo at RX. “In accordance with New York State and New York City guidelines, we are pleased to introduce revised protocols for Vision Expo East. We encourage our participants to be up-to-date on COVID-19 vaccinations and ask that anyone who is not up-to-date wear a face covering. We will continue to monitor the guidance of public health authorities and government agencies going forward to ensure we are creating an environment at Vision Expo East that is as safe as possible.”

A comprehensive set of health and safety guidelines for Vision Expo, including policies and resources designed to support a safe experience, known as VisionSAFE, is available here.

All restrictions and requirements are subject to change.
