COVID Requirements



2021 COVID Requirements

The Clemson Hydrogeology Symposium is a scientific endeavor with the intent of protecting human and natural environmental health.  Towards this goal, and with the advent of the delta variant, we are requiring that all attendees submit proof of vaccination before October 14 OR a negative COVID test within 72 hours of the start of the event on October 21, 2021.  Masks that cover your mouth and nose are required when inside. Please read the info about the mask mandate.  We will be taking temperatures at the door.  Recognizing that the most vulnerable time is during lunch when masks are off, we will be serving lunch outdoors in the pavilion immediately adjacent to the Madren Center.

If you completed the survey by the Oct 13 deadline and indicated you want to upload a copy of your negative test, you have been sent a link to a different survey to do that, or you can just show up, stand in the uncleared line, and show your docs at the door.


If you did not respond to the survey by the Oct 13 deadline you need to do the following:

  • join the uncleared line when you show up to register, and
  • show a valid COVID vaccination card OR a negative test result dated Oct 18, 19, or 20.  You do not have to show both.

IF YOU TEST POSITIVE, and cannot attend in person, send an email to and we will send you Zoom links for the sessions.

You are not allowed to go beyond the registration table in the Madren Center without a 2021 badge.  You will be asked to leave if you do.  You are not allowed to enter the Madren Center without an approved mask.  See the Mask Mandate page.  We will have extras if you need them.

If you are observed not covering your mouth and nose while inside (except in the designated snack area), you could be banned from the Symposium for the next two years. Being confrontational with anyone about this issue could result in a permanent ban.

If you are not registered (and paid), completing this survey will not provide you with continuing education credits.
