Health and Safety Information

The CogSci 2022 Cognitive Diversity Conference is committed to holding a safe and inclusive hybrid conference in July 2022.  Please use the links provided to plan your travel to Toronto.

Before the conference

International delegates, follow the relevant health and travel requirements for your country.  Please make note of the requirements for entering Canada and ensure compliance. Kindly note that all international travelers to Canada must download and provide their travel information in the ArriveCAN app. You can download the ArriveCAN app here.

If you have been exposed to COVID-19 immediately before the conference (within 5 days) and have symptoms, or test positive, stay home and do not attend the conference.

On-site measures

Masks are currently not required in Toronto for public places (https://covid-19.ontario.ca/public-health-measures).  However, we strongly encourage you to wear a mask if possible, particularly in circumstances where it won’t interfere with your ability to communicate with others (e.g. while sitting watching a talk). Let’s do what we can to keep each other safe, and respect that our colleagues will have good reasons for the actions they take on social distancing and masking.

A small number of disposable masks plus hand sanitizer will be available at the registration desk, upon request – however, if possible please bring your own mask.

Update: Effective July 19, fully vaccinated travellers may be selected for Mandatory Random Testing. Fully vaccinated arriving travellers from international destinations who are randomly selected for testing will be notified shortly after arriving by email, and provided with details about how to access tests. Yoy may read more about the completion of a mandatory random test here

Please note that the conference will not have on site testing for COVID – if possible, we recommend that you bring tests if you might want to test yourself during the conference.  Should international delegates require testing for travel, please arrange for testing at a private clinic or at the airport prior to departure, depending on your home country requirements. You may find the closest testing locations in Toronto here.

Note that, at the time of writing, the US has dropped its requirement of a negative COVID test – please read the details on CDC’s website.
