Health and Safety

Please read the following guidelines before attending the Congress.*

  • All attendees must self-monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 throughout the event. Attendees understand and acknowledge that at every instance they attend an in-person event, they are affirming that they are not experiencing any signs or symptoms of COVID-19.

  • Anyone that is feeling unwell or a little off colour should not attend the event and should stay away and seek medical assistance if required.

  • Although there is no longer a legal requirement in Scotland to wear a face covering (face mask) we recommend everyone continues to do so when in busy areas or when moving around the building.

  • Good hygiene and COVID prevention methods must be followed. There are numerous sanitising stations strategically placed in and around the Congress venue. Toilets/washrooms are all clearly signposted around the building.

  • We would advise to still avoid handshaking or physical greeting, a simple verbal greeting remains more appropriate.

  • We will offer full refunds if you are unable to attend the event due to COVID-19, such as testing positive for COVID-19, being in self-isolation/quarantine, or if there are changes to travel regulations. Contact us as soon as possible to arrange this.

  • Any costs incurred due to COVID-19 regulations, such as tests or accommodation for quarantine or self-isolation, are not covered by the Society.

  • If the meeting is cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions, all delegates will be offered full refunds or for their registrations transferred to a postponed or future ESGCT event. The Society cannot cover any additional costs, such as refunds for travel or accommodation. Delegates are responsible for taking appropriate insurance (including travel) cover in connection with their attendance at the event.

COVID-19 is contagious and may be spread by person-to-person contact. Despite reasonable precautions taken, ESGCT cannot ensure that you will not be exposed to or contract COVID-19 as a result of participating in this event or related activities. By choosing to voluntarily register and participate, all attendees understand, acknowledge, and assume the risk of potential exposure to COVID-19 at the event.
