Currently, the European Respiratory Society (ERS) recommends that all attendees of the ERS International Congress 2022 carry a face mask and wear one in spaces where social distancing cannot be observed. Mask wearing is not currently compulsory, but ERS reserves the right to enforce mask wearing at the event, should it be considered appropriate at the time.

Generally, please be aware that the ERS International Congress will follow the rules and regulations outlined by the City of Barcelona at the time of the event. Currently, no measures are in place and there are no specific requirements with regards to COVID-19. This may change.

By registering for the ERS International Congress, you agree to comply with the local policies in place at the time of the event or any mandatory mask requirements enforced by ERS. These will be made clear to all participants before the event takes place. Local policy can be checked at any time on the Catalunya website.
