COVID Guidelines

We are delighted to welcome you all to Belfast.

If you are attending in-person, please note that EVERYONE is required to take a Lateral Flow Test each morning before the congress starts. We suggest you arrive early to collect your badge as staff at the ICC will be asking you to confirm compliance (if asked you can show a photo of your negative result or use an app)

If you are not in possession of Lateral Flow Tests, then you can collect from a local chemist or we will provide them for you. Delegates who have a positive antigen or PCR test should not attend the ICC or any of the EABCT2021 social events and should follow public health advice on self-isolation/restrictions on social activity.

Facemasks need to be worn whilst moving around the venue and social distancing rules are in place. This applies to everyone entering the ICC unless medically exempt

You will need to collect your name badge on arrival, this will also have a barcode so you can be scanned in each morning to comply with contact tracing, so please make sure you visit the Eyas registration desk on arrival every day!
