Health and Safety is Our Top Priority

In addition to presenting proof of full COVID-19 vaccination, all participants will be required to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test* prior to approaching the EPI|Lifestyle 2022 registration desk in the Chicago Hilton. All are encouraged to test prior to arrival; as an alternative, we will provide each EPI|Lifestyle Conference registrant with a self-test kit onsite at the hotel for your convenience.

*Your negative COVID-19 test can be a rapid antigen or PCR test. Test must be taken within one day of check-in, and a digital photo of the test result should be presented along with proof of vaccination.
