The health and safety of everyone involved in the Edge Rockies conference is critically important to Dscoop. We are continually connected to data and information from local, national and international health organizations, in addition to feedback about health and safety concerns among the Dscoop community. Other questions on this list address specific approaches to health and safety at Edge Rockies. 

That’s one way to ensure safe admittance to the event. All participants at Edge Rockies 2022 are required to either be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or to have received a negative PCR test for COVID-19 within 48 hours of admittance. 

Participants are considered fully vaccinated two weeks (14 days) after they have completed either the second dose in a two-dose series (e.g. Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca) or after a single dose of a one-dose vaccine (e.g. Johnson & Johnson). Mixed vaccines will also be accepted (e.g. one dose of Moderna and one dose of Pfizer). Participants should complete their final vaccine by February 20, 2022, to be considered fully vaccinated for Edge Rockies 2022.  

We will accept WHO-approved vaccines, plus  vaccine s authorized or approved by the national health authority of the country where it was administered. The full list of accepted vaccines is as follows: 

  • Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine  
  • Moderna (mRNA-1273) COVID-19 vaccine 
  • Novavax COVID-19 vaccine 
  • Oxford/AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine  
  • Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine  
  • Sinopharm COVID-19 vaccine  
  • Sinovac COVID-19 vaccine  
  • Sputnik V COVID-19 vaccine 
  • CanSino COVID-19 vaccine 
  • Covaxin COVID-19 vaccine 
  • CoviVac COVID-19 vaccine 
  • Covishield (Serum Institute of India) COVID-19 vaccine 

We will also accept a mix of two of the above vaccines (e.g. one dose of Moderna and one dose of Pfizer vaccines).  

Please note that from November 8, 2021, entry to the United States is restricted to vaccinated travelers. The US only accepts WHO-approved vaccines. Please see the Travel to the US section below for more details. 

No, boosters are not required. Fully vaccinated is defined by the CDC as two weeks after a second dose in a two-dose series, or two weeks after a single-dose vaccine. 

Yes, a negative PCR test for COVID-19 taken within 48 hours will be accepted if you are not fully vaccinated.  

No, we are unable to make any exceptions to the requirement to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and or provide a negative PCR test result.  

The venue is owned by Marriott, and the company’s policy is here. Fully vaccinated guests are required to wear face coverings and social distance in indoor and outdoor areas of the hotel. All Marriott Associates working in substantial or high transmission areas as defined by the CDC are required to wear face coverings.

Masks are mandatory in all indoor and outdoor spaces at this time per local law.  

Currently, strict social distancing is not a requirement at Edge Rockies, but much effort has gone into designing the conference to provide plenty of space and comfort for all participants. This  includes numerous seating areas, multiple entrances, larger spaces for catering and networking, and staggering entry to the Solutions Showcase. Our partners are also keeping spacing and comfort in mind when designing their booths. 

Dscoop will provide a limited number of  Self Rapid Test in case of emergency at the Registration Desk.

An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and those with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable.
