If you’re headed to the International Roofing Expo® in New Orleans Feb. 1–3, you should be aware of protocol updates surrounding the uptick in COVID-19 cases. According to theroofingexpo.com, these changes are a priority to ensure a safe environment for attendees. Make sure you know about the vaccination, testing and mask requirements for IRE events and New Orleans’ establishments. Also, on-site COVID-19 testing will be available at the IRE.
New Orleans has reinstated an indoor mask mandate as of Jan. 12. The city of New Orleans also requires proof of full vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours to access indoor dining, indoor fitness and indoor entertainment spaces or performance spaces.
This mandate will apply to the IRE First-time Attendees Reception, IRE Welcome Party and other events taking place in conjunction with the show, such as the SRS Concert and NRCA’s Industry Awards Ceremony and Cocktail Reception.
To help make it easier for attendees to visit the city of New Orleans and take part in activities outside the trade show, the IRE will be providing COVID-19 testing on-site at the convention center for anyone who is not fully vaccinated.
Starting Jan. 30, Informa will be providing COVID-19 testing at the convention center for anyone who is not fully vaccinated. There will be licensed nurses administering COVID-19 rapid antigen tests for $50 each. PCR testing will be available for international guests upon request. Because negative COVID-19 test results are only valid for 72 hours in New Orleans, you may need to retest while you are at the IRE. View more information about the testing location and testing hours on IRE’s website.
Following are details regarding on-site testing:
Testing location: Room 240
Sunday, Jan. 30, noon-5 p.m.
Monday, Jan. 31, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
Tuesday, Feb. 1, 7 a.m.-7 p.m.
Wednesday, Feb. 2, 7 a.m.-7 p.m.
The IRE will follow all local health guidelines. Additionally, it will have hand-sanitizing stations throughout the venue, an enhanced sanitation schedule and widened aisles to promote physical distancing.
The IRE is in close partnership and communication with the city of New Orleans and local health officials for expertise and guidance and will continue to keep you updated regarding any changes.
