HEALTH & SAFETY

  • What are the COVID-19 safety precautions?

    As part of the entry requirements for OR Excellence, all attendees must provide proof of vaccination or proof of negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of arrival in order to enter.

  • How do I show proof of vaccination or proof of negative COVID-19 test results?

    AORN has partnered with CLEAR to utilize the Health Pass feature, to provide easy proof of COVID-related health insights for faster entry. To get started, download the CLEAR app and enroll for free.

    For the most efficient entry possible, all attendees should create a free CLEAR account and complete the checklist for entry requirements.

    Trust and transparency are CLEAR’s top priority, and with Health Pass, users are always in control of their health information. Personal information is only used to deliver a frictionless and secure experience with CLEAR and AORN. You can read more details about this in CLEAR’s Privacy Policy.

    If you have any questions about enrolling in CLEAR, please reach out to [email protected] or tap “Get In Touch” in the app for assistance.

    Need further assistance with Health Pass? Contact CLEAR’s Member Care team directly in the CLEAR app, by calling 1-855-CLEARME (253-2763), or through CLEAR Member Care email.
