COVID-19 Information Update

Safety Measures for the ESGO 2021 Congress in Prague


The ESGO Council, together with the congress local organizing committee, have been carefully monitoring the official updates about COVID-19 and global concerns surrounding travel and public health, as the safety and health of our attendees, speakers, exhibitors and partners are our top priority.

According to the latest updates, the COVID-19 pandemic situation in the Czech Republic has been improving, and further loosening of restrictions are expected. As of September 13, 2021, the maximum attendance at indoor events, including congresses, has been raised to 3,000 persons. For the latest restrictions in the Czech Republic view the information resources below.

Additional updates and guidance from the World Health Organization, European Commission's Safe Travel Initiatives, Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic and other reliable resources will be provided regularly on the congress website.

We will work closely with the congress venue to make the ESGO 2021 Hybrid Congress in October as safe as possible following the mandatory safety measures to provide an exceptional experience for all our participants, exhibitors and partners who plan to join us onsite in Prague, Czech Republic.

Proof of full vaccination at least two weeks prior to the congress or a negative PCR test no older than 72 hours at the entrance will be required. Participants will have their temperature measured as well, when entering the congress venue.
