Health and Safety

ENA is looking forward to hosting its first in-person annual conference since 2019! We are committed to protecting the health and safety of all meeting participants and are actively working with the City of Denver and the Colorado Convention Center to implement public health protocols and best practices to provide the safest possible meeting environment. 

ENA continues to monitor COVID-19 and will follow guidance from the CDC, state, local/city officials as well as the convention center’s requirements and guidelines. 

To help meeting participants and personnel stay healthy and to reduce exposure and risk, everyone attending Emergency Nursing 2022 and/or the General Assembly in Denver must agree to abide by all health and safety protocols required by ENA, the convention center, and/or applicable authorities including, without limitation, the following:

COVID-19 Vaccinations and Testing:
All attendees must attest to the fact that they (i) are fully vaccinated against COVID-19; or (ii) received a negative result on a self-administered antigen or PCR test no later than 24 hours prior to arrival at Emergency Nursing 2022 or the General Assembly (as applicable).

“Fully vaccinated” is defined as receiving all doses (1 or 2 depending upon the vaccine manufacturer) in the primary series of an approved COVID-19 vaccine, per the CDC definition. ENA strongly recommends participants also be “up to date” with vaccines, which is defined by the CDC as having received all doses in the primary series and any boosters recommended for you, if eligible.

Test before you leave home to attend Emergency Nursing 2022 and General Assembly:
As an additional safety precaution, ENA strongly recommends all meeting participants take a self-administered antigen or PCR COVID-19 test and confirm a negative result no later than 24 hours prior to arrival at the event in Denver.


  • Remain home and avoid travel if experiencing any COVID symptoms.
  • Perform a health status self-check every day during the meeting for any onset of COVID symptoms, as defined by the CDC.
  • Isolate and do not attend any ENA events if you are feeling ill. Please take the necessary precautions as outlined by the CDC.
  • There is a First Aid Office on-site at the meeting (located across from room 507 at the Colorado Convention Center) where professional health personnel and EMTs are available should you need immediate assistance or have any health questions.

Face Coverings:
The City of Denver does not require face coverings. ENA will not require attendees to wear a mask during Emergency Nursing 2022, General Assembly or related events. ENA encourages attendees to do what they are most comfortable with in the convention center, hotel indoor spaces and other event locations. Please be respectful of attendees and staff regardless of their masking decision and comfort level. 

Social distancing:
ENA will not enforce any social distancing requirements during Emergency Nursing 2022 or General Assembly. ENA encourages attendees to maintain personal distance based on what they are most comfortable with.

Hygiene practices:
ENA, the Colorado Convention Center and all Emergency Nursing 2022 participating hotels are working together to provide hand sanitizer throughout the indoor space. ENA encourages you to take advantage of these hand sanitizer stations regularly throughout the day. Additionally, the Colorado Convention Center and Hyatt Regency Denver will continuously clean commonly touched surfaces throughout Emergency Nursing 2022 and General Assembly meeting dates.

Health and Safety Signage
Signage will be placed to remind all attendees to encourage hand washing and sanitizing their hands.

Assumption of Risk:
While ENA will follow CDC and local guidelines and take reasonable health and safety precautions in an effort to mitigate the presence and spread of COVID-19, it cannot, and does not, guarantee that meeting attendees will not be exposed to or contract the virus. Individuals attending Emergency Nursing 2022 and/or the General Assembly are at risk for contracting COVID-19. By picking up your registration badge and materials, you understand and accept the risk that you may be exposed to and contract COVID-19 and agree that you are personally responsible for your safety and actions while attending Emergency Nursing 2022, General Assembly and related events.

If you cannot attend Emergency Nursing 2022 in-person, ENA is offering a Digital Access option for two general sessions and more than 20 education sessions. General Assembly will be live-streamed for guest viewing, however delegates need to attend in-person to participate.  

Denver Emergency Information
