COVID-19 Policy

The RSS is offering in-person attendance at the 2022 RSS Scientific Meeting at the Omni La Costa, Carlsbad, CA to members, attendees, exhibitors and staff pursuant to federal, state and local government orders permitting such gatherings at this time. The RSS is working closely with the Omni La Costa to implement the Omni “Safe & Clean” initiative which follows the safety guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and complies with federal, state, and city regulations for health and safety measures. The RSS and event planners will continue to closely monitor all CDC, state, and local guidelines and regulations to ensure all guidelines and precautions are being taken during the 2022 RSS Scientific Meeting.

At this time the following protocols will be in place for all 2022 RSS Scientific Meeting events held in-person at the Omni La Costa, Carlsbad, CA:

COVID-19 Assumption of Risk, Release and Waiver of Liability

I am aware of the highly contagious nature of the 2019 coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and the risk that I may be exposed to by attending the 2022 RSS Scientific Meeting. I understand and acknowledge that such exposure or infection may result in serious illness, permanent disability and death. To the extent that I attend the in-person event, I agree to honor the Personal Accountability & Responsibility Commitment stated below and to follow all instructions contained in the Attendee Policies and posted instructions and signage while attending the RSS meeting and events. Notwithstanding the risks associated with COVID-19, I acknowledge that I am voluntarily choosing to engage in this activity with the knowledge of the risks and WAIVE LIABILITY AGAINST RSS, ITS OFFICERS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, CONTRACTORS AND VOLUNTEERS FOR ANY LOSS, DAMAGES, OR SUFFERING RELATED TO EXPOSURE TO COVID-19.

Personal Accountability & Responsibility Commitment

I agree to abide by and engage in appropriate health and safety conduct as specified by the RSS and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines while attending the 2022 RSS Scientific Meeting. This includes, without limitation, requirements relating to hand sanitation, social distancing, and use of face coverings. I will also follow all instructions of the RSS while attending the 2022 RSS Scientific Meeting, I agree not to participate in-person if I am experiencing symptoms of COVID—19, such as cough, shortness of breath, or fever, if I have a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19, or have come in contact in the last 14 days with a person who has been confirmed or is suspected of having COVID-19.

Code of Conduct

In order to accomplish our mission, it is necessary to both ensure the safety of all of our guests during the RSS Scientific Meeting activities, as well as protect the brand and good standing of the RSS in the eyes of the community. The RSS trusts its members to hold themselves to a higher standard of morals and ethics, and to uphold these standards at all times. As policy, the following guidelines direct conduct for all RSS participants at any officially sponsored 2022 RSS Scientific Meeting event.

Illegal or irresponsible conduct does more than simply tarnish the offender. It puts innocent people at risk, sullies the reputation of the RSS, and undermines the ability of the RSS to fulfill its mission of advancing the science and clinical practice of stereotactic radiosurgery, stereotactic body radiotherapy and advancing therapies. While any criminal activity is clearly outside the scope of permissible conduct, the standards of conduct during officially sanctioned RSS events is considerably higher.

The RSS expects its guests to at a minimum:

Standards of Behavior

Electronic devices must be turned off or set to silent mode during educational sessions.

Disruptive or objectionable conduct, activities and related materials (megaphones, signage, etc.) as determined by the RSS are strictly prohibited in every area of the convention unless specifically approved by the RSS in writing.

No weapons of any kind are allowed at the 2022 RSS Scientific Meeting or any of the conference facilities. Explosives, fuel, combustible, or hazardous materials are strictly prohibited.

Sexual Harassment

It is the RSS policy that guests, staff members, partners, and the general public are entitled to an environment free of sexual harassment at any RSS event. No one, male or female, should be subjected verbally or physically to unsolicited and unwelcomed sexual overtures or conduct. This behavior is not welcome, is personally offensive, debilitates morale and, therefore, creates an unsafe environment. Behavior that amounts to sexual harassment may result in disciplinary action.

If you experience or witness sexual harassment at any RSS event, report it immediately to any RSS staff member. All allegations of sexual harassment will be quickly investigated. To the extent possible, your confidentiality and that of any witnesses and the alleged harasser will be protected against unnecessary disclosure. When the investigation is completed, you will be informed of the outcome of that investigation.

Equal Opportunity

It is the RSS policy not to discriminate or screen guests on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status as an attendance requirement to any event. The RSS is committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment at all RSS events. As an extension of the RSS policy, the RSS requires all guests to treat each other with dignity and respect. Any guest failing to adhere to this standard will be subject to disciplinary action.

Accessibility

The RSS may provide, upon request, alternative formats, auxiliary aids, and services necessary for all individuals to participate in all programs and services provided by our organization. Requests for accommodations should be given at the time of registration or submitted at least three weeks in advance of the conference.

Attire

Business casual and business formal attire is preferred.
