Health and Safety

COVID-19 continues to circulate in the Asia Pacific region, and it is likely there will be cases reported during APNIC 56. While there are no longer mask mandates and restrictions on movement in Japan, delegates are reminded to take personal precautions as necessary.

Please DO NOT enter the venue if you are unwell with COVID-19, showing flu-like symptoms, or have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.

If you are feeling unwell at APNIC 56, please do the following:

  • Leave the session and return to your hotel room
  • Test to see if you have COVID-19 using a Rapid Antigen Test

We encourage you to please rest and not return to the conference while you continue to feel unwell. We also recommend testing again on the following days until you are no longer testing positive.

If you continue to feel unwell, please seek medical assistance.

If you test positive for COVID-19, we would appreciate it if you could advise APNIC on
