AAS Coronavirus Conference Policy
The mission of the AAS is to enhance and share humanity’s scientific understanding of the universe as a diverse and inclusive astronomical community. This mission, combined with our values guides us to ensure the most inclusive, welcoming, and safe environments at our scientific conferences.
Full and up-to-date coronavirus vaccination (primary + booster) has been repeatedly shown to be safe, highly effective at preventing serious illness and death from the coronavirus and adds significantly more protection than natural immunity alone. Although infection and reinfection are possible even in those fully vaccinated or recovered from infection, serious illness and death are significantly reduced through full and up-to-date vaccination compared to both the unvaccinated and those recovered from infection.
Given the overwhelming impact of the coronavirus on the world population, with more than 920,000 people dying from the virus in the US alone, the Board of Trustees believes that full and up-to-date vaccination, combined with prudent safety measures sensible for the time and place of the event, are the best way to deliver the safe environment due to all our attendees, exhibitors, vendors, and staff.
