Zonta International’s priority in all convention decisions is the safety and welfare of our members, guests, speakers and convention planning team. Zonta is also obligated to follow the regulations mandated by Germany, the city of Hamburg, and the venues where Zonta events will be held.
In order to move forward with an in-person convention with lower risk to all participants, Zonta International will require one of the following for admittance to the 65th Zonta International Convention in Hamburg, Germany:
- Proof of COVID-19 vaccination
- A negative COVID-19 test within a 72-hour window prior to the start of convention on 24 June, or
- Documentation from a licensed health care provider of having recovered from COVID-19 within 90 days of 24 June.
These criteria are based on the requirements of the Congress Center Hamburg (CCH) and guidance and recommendations issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other public health authorities.
Zonta International will also require registrants to submit a signed Mandatory Acknowledgement Form, which is required for entry to the CCH. This form will be provided to individuals within the two weeks prior to the convention. This supports contract tracing requirements.
Proof of vaccination can be shown via a printed vaccination card, digital photograph of both sides of the vaccination card, or app-based vaccination record.
These measures are designed to create a safe, exceptional experience for all convention participants. Zonta will monitor the country, city and venue requirements and update Convention attendees accordingly prior to your travel to Hamburg, Germany. Please review the website prior to convention for updates.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
