Re: [802SEC] F2F meeting safety

Can’t support a non-scientific plan like this.   Suggesting that a person previously infected must get vaccinated is non-scientific.  I will stop there.

Thanks Andrew,

I agree it is a good plan that we could mimic.

G’day all


A Cisco colleague recently attended his first F2F conference for some time (it was actually a hybrid meeting, but the on-line component was mainly broadcast rather than interactive). It was sponsored by the Linux Foundation.


The experience was apparently not perfect, with my colleague reporting that some sessions were too full for his comfort, but generally pretty good. The most important aspect was that the Linux Foundation took COVID safety very seriously, including imposing:

  • A mask mandate
  • A vaccine requirement (with no exceptions for previous infection, etc)
  • Daily temperature checks
  • A social distancing code, with wristbands

See for details


This is the sort of thing that is going to be required for F2F activities to be provided in safety and comfort, at least in the near future. The Linux Foundation has done an excellent job at showing what is possible. This might be a good example for IEEE 802 to follow …
