COVID 19 FAQs
Proof of Vaccination
All attendees MUST provide proof of vaccination or proof of negative COVID-19 test within 72-hours of badge pick up. An individual is considered fully vaccinated 14-days after the second dose of a two-dose vaccine series (Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, AstraZeneca-SK Bio) or 14-days after a single-dose vaccine (Johnson & Johnson/Janssen). For attendees that need to submit a negative test, NDIA will ONLY allow Rapid Antigen, Rapid PCR, and Regular PCR tests. A prior COVID-19 diagnosis or antibody tests are not accepted for entry into the event.
NDIA is continually monitoring the current novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak situation and will communicate any specific updates via NDIA.org/Coronavirus, where you can find a list of affected meetings, conferences, and events.
We are committed to following on-site safety measures and enhanced cleaning guidelines, precautions, and procedures as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), the Department of Defense (DoD), and the Office of Personnel Management (OPM). We are following—and will remain in compliance with—all city, state, and federal guidelines.

We are fully prepared to adjust our plans as needed.
