MHI is committed to health and safety at Modex 2022

As the Covid-19 pandemic continues to impact the world, MHI is committed to the health and safety of all Modex 2022 attendees. Here are the protocols that the organization and venue of the event have put in place and the recommendations they offer to all participants:

Mask requirements.The City of Atlanta no longer requires masks indoors. As a result, Modex 2022 will be a mask-optional event for all attendees.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has also updated its Covid-19 prevention guidelines. New guidelines suggest that people living in areas with low transmission of the virus and who have no underlying health conditions can drop masking in public places. According to the CDC, Fulton and DeKalb counties, in which the city of Atlanta resides, are currently experiencing low levels of community spread for Covid-19.

However, a national executive order still requires people to wear face masks when using public transportation across the United States. This includes airports, planes, trains, subways, buses, taxis and ride-sharing services. Therefore, masks are still mandatory for all visitors when riding Modex shuttles.

COVID vaccinations are recommended and a negative Covid test is highly recommended. MHI strongly encourages attendees to travel to the event only after being fully immunized. This means that at least two weeks have passed since receiving a booster after the second dose of a two-dose Pfizer and Moderna vaccine, or the booster after a single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. It also recommends that you have a negative COVID test result within 24 hours of attending the event.

These test facilities are all located near the event site:
