COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement for CPNP 2022 In-Person Attendees

All CPNP Annual Meeting attendees, speakers, and CPNP Staff are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 according to current CDC guidelines or have a religious exemption based on a sincerely held religious belief, practice, or observance. Those with a medical exemption or an objection to COVID-19 vaccinations based on non-religious reasons, including personal preferences or non-religious concerns about the vaccine, do not qualify for a religious exception and are welcome and encouraged to attend the Annual Meeting virtually. All attendees will be asked to confirm their vaccination or religious exemption status during registration and those citing a religious exemption must also receive a negative COVID-19 test result within 72 hours of their arrival date to attend the CPNP 2022 Annual Meeting.

COVID-19 Protocols for In-Person Attendees

CPNP is committed to following all CDC guidelines related to the COVID-19 pandemic as well as state, local, and corporate (hotel) requirements to be mindful of the safety of attendees, staff, speakers, vendors, and supporters. In addition to the vaccination or religious exemption with negative COVID test requirement, a complete list of event health and safety protocols will be published by March 17, 2022, based on current recommendations and requirements of the CDC, state health agencies, and the meeting venue, the San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter. Marriott’s Commitment to Clean outlines its current policies and procedures for COVID-19.

By registering for the event, in-person attendees agree to abide by all event protocols and to follow necessary precautions. Prior to April 22 at 11:59 PM Central, an in-person registration can be converted to a virtual registration by emailing, and CPNP will refund the difference less a $75 handling fee. After April 22, an in-person registrant can still attend virtually but without a refund. Poster presenters cannot convert to virtual registration.

Registrants who have an exposure to a positive COVID-19 case April 10-24 should only attend the event as an in-person attendee after receiving a negative COVID-19 test. If you are unable to do so, refer to the instructions above for converting to a virtual registration.

Registrants who receive a positive COVID-19 test before April 1 should follow all directives from their local heath department and should receive a negative COVID-19 test before attending the event.

Registrants who receive a positive COVID-19 test April 1 or later should not attend the event in-person. Please refer to the direction above for converting to a virtual registration.
