Frequently Asked Questions
How will CHI be verifying vaccination of attendees?
Our event staff will review your vaccine documentation and ID to confirm that you are fully vaccinated and able to enter the event space.
What does “fully vaccinated” mean?*
People are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after their last vaccine dose. If you received a single dose vaccine (ie, Johnson & Johnson), you are fully vaccinated two
weeks after your shot. If you received a vaccine that requires two shots (ie, Pfizer or Moderna), you are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after your second shot. If you don’t meet these requirements, you are NOT fully vaccinated,
and will not be able to enter the event space.
Will CHI accommodate medical or religious exemptions?
Unfortunately, we are not able to make exceptions. If for any reason you cannot or will not be fully vaccinated at the time of the event, you will not be able to enter
the event space. We welcome you to participate using our virtual platform.
I am not vaccinated, but I can provide a negative test – can I attend in person?
Unfortunately, we are not able to make exceptions. A negative test is not a substitute for vaccination. If you are not fully vaccinated
at the time of the event, you will not be able to enter the event space. We welcome you to participate using our virtual platform.
I am not vaccinated, but I have already had COVID – can I attend in person?
Unfortunately, we are not able to make exceptions. The CDC recommends vaccination for COVID, even for those who have already been infected.
If you are not fully vaccinated at the time of the event, you will not be able to enter the event space. We welcome you to participate using our virtual platform.
When am I expected to wear a mask?
CHI will follow all local guidelines. The city of London does not have a mask mandate in place at this time, however, we still recommend wearing a mask inside the event space.
How will CHI be verifying attendee test results?
Our event staff will ask for a verbal attestation to your test timing and results.
Is there a specific kind of test I need to use?
Please use FDA-approved, WHO-approved or EU approved rapid antigen test, to ensure you can test and receive your results within 24 hours prior to arriving at the event.
How often do I need to test?
CHI only requires you to test before you arrive at the event. Based on your own judgement and comfort level, you may choose to take additional tests on your own during and/or after the event.

I’m traveling from outside the UK – what are the requirements for entry?

This one is up to you. Please follow your personal comfort level and respect the boundaries of your fellow attendees. Handshakes, waves and elbow bumps all welcome.
