VEE Organizers Announce Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination, Face Coverings Will Not be Required

The Vision Council and RX, co-organizers of Vision Expo, share that, in accordance with New York State and New York City guidelines and the updated requirements of the Javits Center, proof of COVID-19 vaccination and face coverings will not be required to attend Vision Expo East, taking place Thursday, March 31 to Sunday, April 3, 2022, at the Javits Center in New York City. The announcement follows New York Mayor Eric Adams’ announcement on Friday, March 4 regarding the suspension of the Key to NYC program and the Javits Center’s revised safety protocols.

“The health and safety of everyone in attendance at Vision Expo continues to be our priority,” said Fran Pennella, Vice President, Vision Expo, at RX. “In accordance with New York State and New York City guidelines, we are pleased to introduce revised protocols for Vision Expo East. We encourage our participants to be up to date on COVID-19 vaccinations and ask that anyone who is not up-to-date wear a face covering. We will continue to monitor the guidance of public health authorities and government agencies going forward to ensure we are creating an environment at Vision Expo East that is as safe as possible.”

“As we look forward to Vision Expo East’s return to New York City, we are excited to return to a degree of normalcy in terms of how we gather,” said Mitch Barkley, Vice President of Trade Shows and Events at The Vision Council, co-organizer of Vision Expo.  “As always, we are committed to creating an environment that is comfortable, safe and conducive to conducting business, networking and learning, and we are thrilled to bring the community together in New York in just a few weeks.”
