Alert!   We encourage you to monitor this page to stay abreast of the latest updates on health and safety protocols for the 49th IEEE Photovoltaic Specialists Conference (PVSC 49).


The safety of our meeting attendees is PVSC's top priority and we believe the most effective way to ensure the safety of all attendees is for everyone to be vaccinated against COVID-19. As a result, proof of vaccination will be required for all attendees.

Fully vaccinated examples are outlined below:

  • Two weeks after receiving the second dose in a two-dose series, such as the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines; or
  • Two weeks after receiving a single-dose vaccine, such as the Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) vaccine.

Please note: booster shots will not be required but are strongly encouraged.

On-site Safety Measures 

Public health guidance on preventing the transmission of COVID-19 continues to evolve, and PVSC will base its on-site protocols on the latest guidance from the CDC, local regulations in Philadelphia and venue policies.

International Attendees

International attendees should always check current travel restrictions to the U.S. on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website, before planning your travel, to make sure you will be able to enter the U.S.   In addition, please monitor local regulations at home to ensure that you will be able to return from the U.S.
