AACC COVID-19 Health & Safety Plan

AACC is fully committed to holding a successful in-person meeting at the McCormick Place convention center in Chicago, IL, USA this summer. AACC’s priority is always the health and well-being of our community. We are therefore working closely with the McCormick Place convention center, 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 CDC, the State of Illinois, and the City of Chicago, as well as industry standards.

AACC will share the COVID-19 protocols and requirements in March 2022.


By attending our 2022 AACC Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo in Chicago, IL, you agree to abide by and engage in conduct that is beneficial to health and safety while attending the event.


The McCormick Place 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.
