MODEX is returning to Atlanta March 28-31, 2022, and MHI is committed to the health and safety of all MODEX 2022 participants. We are actively tracking the emerging news and science around the pandemic. As information and guidelines change, MHI will continue to monitor and update these policies based on current government regulations and public health authorities input.
We are confident the MODEX will be a very dynamic and productive experience for all members of the MHI and MODEX Show community. MHI reserves the right to make changes to show policies and protocols as conditions evolve over the coming weeks. Registered participants will be promptly notified of any changes and these guidelines will also be updated on modexshow.com.
The City of Atlanta no longer requires masks indoors. As a result, MODEX 2022 will be a mask-optional event for all visitors.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have also updated their COVID-19 prevention guidelines. New guidance suggests people living in areas of low transmission for the virus, and who do not have underlying health conditions, can drop masking inside public places. According to the CDC, both 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 while using public transportation throughout the United States. This includes airports, airplanes, trains, subways, buses, taxis and rideshare services. Therefore, masks are still required for all visitors while riding MODEX shuttle buses.
MHI strongly encourages you to travel to the event only after you are fully vaccinated. (Fully vaccinated means at least 2 weeks have passed since your 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.) and that you have a negative COVID test result within 24 hours of attending the event.
