7What are the Covid-19 protocols at the Summit?
While CLIA strives to adhere to the advice of local, national, and international health authorities, any interaction with the public poses an elevated risk of being exposed to COVID-19 and we cannot guarantee that you will not be exposed while in attendance at the event. We encourage you to practice the best personal mitigation strategies that are available, like getting vaccinated, wearing masks while indoors with others, and washing your hands often. If you need more direction, please consult your national and local health authority websites for up-to-date recommendations. Our own member cruise line websites also provide a great source for rigorous, layered protective measures. Please note that a mask mandate remains in place at both conference venues (Palazzo Ducale and Magazzini del Cotone) and must be worn at all times except when eating and drinking. Masks must be of FFP2 (respirator) standard, and spare masks will be available onsite if needed.
