To counteract the spread of a new coronavirus infection at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum 2021 venues, a number of epidemiological safety measures developed by Rospotrebnadzor will be introduced. 

These measures relate to the sanitary regime during events, access to the venues of events, catering, sanitization of premises, provision of participants and staff with personal protective equipment.

“As we have repeatedly stated, the priority of the SPIEF organizers this year is the safety and comfort of the participants. Therefore, when developing epidemiological safety regulations, we were guided by the principle of reasonable sufficiency. All procedures related to accreditation and access to the site comply with the recommendations of WHO and Rospotrebnadzor, while being accessible and easy to perform,” said the head of Rospotrebnadzor Anna Popova.

In particular, additions have been made to the procedure for accreditation and access to the platform for participants, media representatives, staff and volunteers of the Forum. For accreditation in the Personal Account, it is necessary to fill in data on the transferred new coronavirus infection СOVID-19, the presence or absence of antibodies to the disease and the vaccination passed. All participants and staff are encouraged to get vaccinated.

Before arriving at the Forum site, you will need to undergo PCR testing at one of the specially deployed points testing - they will be organized at Pulkovo airport, at the Moscow railway station and in hotels in the city. You can take the test starting from June 1, but no later than one day before visiting the SPIEF 2021 site. The test results will be valid during the entire period of the Forum. The test result will be automatically loaded into the accreditation system and, if it is negative, will activate the badge for access to the site.

Those who plan to attend the plenary session of the Forum will need to undergo additional PCR testing for days before the meeting. Foreign participants will also have to undergo PCR testing 72 hours before crossing the border, and then one day before arriving at the Forum site. There is no need to quarantine upon arrival.

Remote thermometry will be provided at the Forum site - persons with a body temperature above 37.1 will not be able to enter the Forum. Recirculators and air disinfection devices will be installed on the territory of the Expoforum CEC. During the Forum, dry and wet cleaning using disinfectants, treatment of contact surfaces and disinfection in conference rooms will be carried out.

All employees and volunteers will be provided with personal protective equipment. Forum cars will undergo special antibacterial treatment after each flight. When seating passengers in the cabin, it will be necessary to maintain a social distance.

Medical offices at the site will be provided with the necessary equipment and medicines. There will also be ambulances and intensive care units on duty, including teams of English-speaking doctors.

Full details of COVID-19 prevention measures can be found in the appropriate section on the Forum website.
