The 36th Annual National Logistics Forum planning team continues to monitor the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation as the health of our event participants, members, and partners remain our top priority. We are committed to following the guidelines and precautions as outlined by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
Will proof of vaccination or a negative test be required to attend?
Due to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, we ask that all conference participants provide at conference registration a proof of vaccination or negative PCR test results obtained within 3 days of arrival.
What is considered fully vaccinated and which vaccines will be accepted?
An individual is considered fully vaccinated 14-days after the second dose of a two-dose vaccine series (Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna) or 14-days after a single-dose vaccine (Johnson & Johnson/Janssen).
What type of COVID test will be accepted?
A molecular PCR (polymerase chain reaction) is preferred. If not available, an antigen test administered by a pharmacy, lab, or medical professional is required. Proof of antibodies will not be accepted.
Will COVID testing be available onsite?
COVID testing will not be available onsite. For a list of testing sites in the Salt Lake City area, please visit here. COVID testing is the financial responsibility of the attendee.
How will NDIA collect vaccine/negative test information?
An upload submission will not be available. Providing your original vaccination card is preferable, but a photo is acceptable, so long as your name, the name of the vaccine, and the dates are all clear in the image, and the name matches your ID

What is NDIA's mask policy?
NDIA follows CDC and state guidelines. Currently, in Salt Lake County, UT, masks are required indoors regardless of vaccination status. Accordingly, all participants at the 36th Annual National Logistics Forum will be required to wear face masks at all times, except when actively eating or drinking. There will be provision to replace lost masks; however, please plan ahead and bring your own face mask.
Attendees should keep their masks conservative, professional, and in keeping with dignity and respect. Face coverings with demeaning or derogatory logos, profanity, offensive script or imagery, or political dissent are not authorized. NDIA staff will wear appropriate Personal Protective Equipment, dependent upon vaccination status, CDC Guidelines and comfort levels.
Will social distancing be implemented?
NDIA is planning additional venue space to allow for attendees to spread out and reduce crowding. Please restrain from handshakes and embracing as an extra precaution as well as following CDC’s guidelines. Consider using digital alternatives to share contact information. Ample hand sanitizer stations will be available; please wash your hands often, cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue or elbow, and stay home if you are sick.
How will meeting rooms be set up?
Attendees can expect general seating at a variety of distances to accommodate attendee comfort levels with one entrance and one exit to each room, as well as increased cleaning protocols. Q&A segments will utilize Sli.do or similar applications to eliminate the sharing of microphones or question cards.
Will a live streaming be available?
Live streaming will not be available for this event.
