Masking Requirements at PDXLAN Spring 2023
Masks are not required law, therefore attendees may decide for themselves on an individual basis if and when they want to wear a mask.
We prefer people to wear masks out of consideration of others.
What is the attendee refund policy if I am unable to attend due to COVID-19?
Unfortunately, we are unable to offer badge/ticket refunds. Please ensure you are free from COVID-19 symptoms prior to traveling.
How are the health and safety measures at PDXLAN being enforced?
Everyone is expected to fully comply with all health and safety guidelines that the State of Washington or Clark County require.
This is a requirement of entry.
Will the airflow of the event be increased for cleaner air?
Yes, we anticipate venting the room more often, which will also have the effect of lower temperatures. Plan accordingly.
Will PDXLAN be providing masks?
No. At this time PDXLAN has no plans to provide required masks to attendees.
Am I required to wear a face covering at PDXLAN?
No, but we ask you to consider doing so to help protect those community members that are immunocompromised.
What additional health and safety measures are in place at PDXLAN?
PDXLAN show management partners closely with the venue, local, state, and federal health authorities to maintain a robust operational plan designed to maximize the health and safety of everyone. These Include:
- Strict compliance with code of conduct
- Retention of exhibitor and attendee information for contact tracing purposes
- Increased sanitization and hygiene stations located at the hall entrance, Staff Help Desk, Concession windows, Bathrooms, and Sponsor booths.
Is asking for my vaccine status a HIPAA violation?
No, as a business PDXLAN is allowed to ask for your vaccine status. You are not legally required to share this information with PDXLAN, but PDXLAN may choose to disallow entry to the event based on vaccine status at their discretion.

What if I have addional questions?
Please contact us.
A note from our staff:
While masks are not required, it would be kind of you to consider others who may be attending with immunocompromised family members at home. While you may be able to battle COVID-19 just fine, there are those out there that can’t. It is for them we try and mask.
Any changes to this page will be posted in the form of an announcement on the website, Discord, Twitter, and Facebook.
