COVID-19 Protocols 

 

Given the evolving situation around the COVID-19 pandemic, Thrombosis Canada & CanVECTOR will be monitoring the situation and revising our plans as needed to meet local, provincial, and national government guidelines with respect to masking, social distancing and participant capacity. This may require moving to an all-virtual event or making adjustments to the venue with respect to seating, room capacity and overall room setup as we get closer to the conference date.

  • Meals will be served but the format has yet to be determined.
  • All participants will have the option to participate virtually for all or part of the event.
  • Exhibitors will have the option for in-person and/or virtual exhibit booths.
