AACC COVID-19 Health and Safety Plan

AACC is fully committed to holding a successful in-person meeting at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, CA, USA, this summer. AACC’s priority is always the health and well-being of our community. We are therefore working closely with the Anaheim Convention Center, City of Anaheim, vendor partners, and hotels to implement thorough but adaptable COVID-19 safety protocols. These protocols will meet or exceed all recommendations and safety procedures from the State of California and the City of Anaheim, as well as industry standards. Please note that these protocols are subject to change.


By attending the 2023 AACC Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo in Anaheim, CA, you agree to abide by and engage in conduct that is beneficial to health and safety while at the event.


AACC strongly recommends all meeting attendees do the following:

  • Stay up to date with COVID-19 and other recommended adult vaccinations.
  • Take a rapid COVID-19 test prior to attending the meeting and do not attend if you test positive.
  • Do not attend the meeting if you have symptoms that could be consistent with a cold or other respiratory infection and leave the meeting if you develop such symptoms.
  • Wear a mask in crowded indoor settings in the convention center, hotels, and aboard the hotel shuttles.


The Anaheim Convention Center received GBAC Star accreditation from the Global Biorisk Advisory Council, a division of ISSA Inc., the leading association for the cleaning industry. Accreditation is awarded to facilities that follow a high standard of cleaning, disinfection, and disease prevention and that follow proper cleaning and disinfecting protocols and workplace practices.
