Health & Safety
The safety and well-being of our attendees, partners, exhibitors, site workers and staff remains our top priority. As we get closer to returning to an in-person conference in Anaheim, we continue to update our health and safety policies for the upcoming ADP Meeting of the Minds based upon current recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the state of California and local Anaheim health authorities. We will continue to monitor their recommendations and will update relevant information as needed. We look forward to welcoming everyone back for an incredible event experience.

We are continuously monitoring guidance from the CDC and local health authorities and reserve the right to adjust the events’ health & safety protocols as relevant recommendations and tradeshow industry standards evolve.
What are ADP’s Covid Policy/Health & Safety protocols for ADP MOTM?
Our event is following the local guidelines required by the city of Anaheim for Mega Events and has partnered with CLEAR Health Pass to manage our attendees’ blind data in a secure and confidential manner.

CLEAR Health Pass is a modular system that provides employees and attendees with a seamless way to upload proof of vaccination, negative COVID-19 tests, or fill out health surveys. Please visit “here” for more information and to download the app. (link to informational document with instructions COMING SOON!)

CLEAR HEALTH PASS / Vaccination / Testing Details

Prior to traveling onsite, Attendees must provide one of the following items electronically via the CLEAR Health Pass app prior to attending the ADPMOTM 2022 event:

Proof of COVID vaccination (Per the CDC, US domestic residents are fully vaccinated if they have completed two doses of either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines or one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.)

Negative PCR test within 48 hours of event (Polymerase Chain Reaction, also called diagnostic or molecular)

Negative Rapid Antigen test within 24 hours of event


Masks are required indoors regardless of vaccination status.

Electronic proof of either Covid Vaccination or Negative test result through the show management approved app “CLEAR” accompanied by a valid government issued photo ID: Guidelines above will be monitored through the CLEAR app and ADP’s Global Security Organization and Medical Team.

Those who do not meet requirements will be assisted with the technology or will meet with onsite Health & Safety staff for further assistance.

Participants will not receive their badge/lanyard until cleared (verify that is a “green” light on the CLEAR app) and will be required to show their CLEAR status at checkpoints throughout event.
Which vaccinations will be accepted as a substitute for a negative test?
Per the CDC, US domestic residents are fully vaccinated if they have completed two doses of either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines or one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
Will a single dose of an approved vaccine be accepted?
Proof of full COVID-19 vaccination prior to entry is required as an option to a Negative Test result. Per the CDC, US domestic residents are fully vaccinated if they have completed two doses of either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines or one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
Will I be required to have a booster shot as part of my proof of vaccination?
No, at this time, the CDC has yet to issue formal guidance on boosters and many countries will implement their own policies regarding booster shots. ADP MOTM Staff are closely monitoring the situation, but at this time a booster shot is not required to attend.
What if I’ve recently recovered from COVID-19 and am unable to provide proof of a negative test?
People who have recovered from COVID-19 can continue to test positive for up to 3 months after their infection. CDC does not recommended retesting within 3 months after a person with COVID-19 first developed symptoms (or the date of their first positive viral diagnostic test if their infection was asymptomatic). As such, ADP will accept a letter of clearance from a medical professional indicating that the individual has recovered from COVID within the previous 90 days to gain entry to the shows.
Will face masks be mandatory?
Yes, all attendees, exhibitors, staff, contractors, laborers, etc. are required to wear a face mask indoors regardless of vaccination, according to current Covid guidelines. For large outdoor events in close proximity, face masks are also recommended.

What should I do if I test positive for Covid-19 while at the event?
If you believe you have contracted COVID-19 while onsite at Meeting of the Minds, please refrain from attending any further sessions immediately and report it to our onsite medical team for additional consultation.
How often will proof of vaccine need to be checked to enter the event venues (convention center, hotels, evening events, etc.)?
You will need to show proof each time you exit and then re-enter the various event venues.  Use of the CLEAR Health Pass App will allow for the speediest re-entry.
