Face masks that cover the nose and mouth are required of all attendees, staff and vendors at all times inside the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center or inside any other official event locations except when eating, drinking, or presenting as recommended by the CDC.

As a science-based organization, the AHA /ASA continues to follow the guidance of the CDC and state and local health departments, and this guidance will continue to evolve. Protecting the health and safety of all participants remains our top priority.

Sanitation and Social Distancing Protocols

AHA/ASA has established strict sanitation protocols with the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center and all conference partners. Appropriate social distancing will be required. Additionally, hand sanitizers and masks will be readily available during the event to all participants.
