The health and well-being of IEEE JTCM attendees remains our top priority. By working closely with Hyatt Regency Orange County and Federal, State and Local public health officials, we will incorporate current best practices to provide you with the best level of protection at 2022 IEEE Joint Technical Committee Meetings (JTCM).

2022 JTCM organizing committee will continue to actively monitor local, state, and federal guidelines and we may further adjust our protocols if local conditions change as we get closer to the event. 

We all play a role in the health and safety. This year, we’ve added COVID specific measures to ensure a clean environment that focuses on your health and wellness.  Here are some of the health measures that we expect all participants to follow:

  • California department of health guidelines:
    • All attendees must wear an approved face covering at all times while inside the venue and while attending JTCM. Face coverings may be removed when actively eating, drinking, or giving a presentation during a session.
    • Should anyone be seen not wearing a mask, conference organizers will remind attendees to put one on.
    • Signage will be in place throughout Hyatt Regency Orange County informing and reminding all attendees and contractors of the face covering requirement.
  • Hyatt’s Global Care & Cleanliness Commitment 

 

What You Can Do to Help Onsite

  • Follow the World Health Organization’s (WHO) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) guidelines to prevent the spread of infectious diseases at the event.
  • Discourage physical greetings like handshakes, high fives, fist or elbow bumps, and hugs.
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Maintain social distancing between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • If you have fever, cough, and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early.

 

We look forward to you joining us in Orange Grove, California.  If you don’t feel comfortable participating in large gatherings, if your organization has travel restrictions, we encourage you to join us virtually.
