CRYO2022 in-person delegates must abide by all mandates and laws pertaining to gatherings as detailed by the Irish Government and Failte Ireland and any additional rules put in place by the Hotel Riu Plaza The Gresham Dublin

The Irish Government recently removed most of the COVID-19 restrictions. Social distancing, proof of vaccinations, and contact tracing are no longer required. Mask wearing in public areas is not required but delegates are encouraged to wear a mask if they prefer. 

In-person delegates who feel unwell at any time should immediately perform a rapid antigen test and self-isolate if it is positive. 

In-person delegates are responsible for their travel arrangements to/from their home countries. The Society for Cryobiology will not be responsible delegate’s visas, testing, vaccinations, travel delays, or cancellations.
