Hello NANOG 85 Attendees,

Your health and safety are very important to us and NANOG is ready to host
everyone safely in Montréal. We will require that everyone attending NANOG
85 be fully vaccinated against COVID-19
no later than May 23, 2022.

You are considered fully vaccinated at least 2 weeks after the final dose
in either a 2 dose vaccine series (Pfizer, Moderna, or AstraZeneca) or the
single-dose series (Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen) vaccine. If you do not
meet these requirements, you are not fully vaccinated and we request that
you join us for NANOG 85 virtually. There will be no exceptions.

Please be aware that ArriveCan is mandatory for travelers entering Canada.
Those who do not comply could be subject to a $5K fine. You must use the
ArriveCAN mobile app
or sign in on a computer to enter your proof of vaccination, quarantine,
and travel information.


   To be ready for your trip, create your free ArriveCAN account

   Proof of vaccination and travel documents can be saved in your ArriveCAN
   traveler profile before any planned travel

   To get an ArriveCAN receipt, submit your travel and quarantine plan
   information within 72 hours before your arrival in Canada

If you do not have a smartphone, within 72 hours of your arrival in
Canada, sign
in to ArriveCAN from a computer
<https://arrivecan.cbsa-asfc.cloud-nuage.canada.ca/welcome> to get an
ArriveCAN receipt. Print your receipt and take it with you when you travel.
You can also have someone submit your travel information on your behalf

In addition, health professionals will be on-site at the Fairmont Queen
Elizabeth Hotel in the Ping Room on the 3rd Floor, to conduct Covid-19
