Are masks required and are face shields acceptable?

All event participants are expected to behave in accordance with professional standards and applicable laws. Per Orange County, Fla. Executive Order and Hyatt face coverings mandate, face coverings are required in all public areas of Hyatt Regency Orlando with only very limited exceptions (noted below). Face Shields are an acceptable face covering. Face masks will be available on site for all attendees.

Face coverings are required in the hotel lobby, all meeting space public areas such as foyers and hallways, meeting ballrooms and breakout rooms when not seated and socially distanced (or when not presenting in a session and socially distanced), restaurants and bars when not actively eating or drinking, fitness center, and while moving around in outdoor areas. Guests who are not wearing face coverings at the hotel as required will be asked to wear one. Face coverings will be made available to guests who do not have one. Guests who are not willing to comply with this face coverings mandate may either stay in their guestroom throughout their visit or they will be asked to leave the hotel property.

Are there any health screening or testing procedures in place?

All attendees and guests will be sent a health questionnaire to complete online prior to entering the CPAC spaces. The first time you enter the CPAC space to retrieve your credentials you will show the confirmation that you received from filling out the questionnaire. Every day you will go through a temperature screening checkpoint before proceeding into the CPAC space.

If you register a temperature of 100.4 you will be sent to a secondary screening location for additional screening and possible rapid testing. If you do not feel well you should stay in your room and watch CPAC online.
