COVID-19 Health & Safety Policies

IDAR2022 is an in-person event (with a virtual option) organized so that all individuals (attendees, speakers, staff and venue personnel) remain safe and comfortable throughout the event. We will follow all CDC, Illinois, Champaign country and University of Illinois campus guidelines, and will keep the conference web page with up to date with our current requirements.

UIUC Campus guidelines now allow individuals to be inside without masks and we cannot change this campus rule. However, we encourage attendees to be masked while at the conference and will have masks available for you.

For those needing to have a Covid test before flying internationally, there are several testing options. The closest is Campustown Urgent Care, which offers a variety of Covid test options ( including PCR tests. You need to sign up for an appointment (M-F between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm). When you go to their website, make sure to select the Champaign Campustown location (631 E Green St), which is only a short walk from the Beckman Institute.
