Covid-19 information

The Brazilian government has a number of measures in place to limit the spread of COVID-19. 

The Brazilian government has announced a plan for gradual relaxation of restrictive measures. Relaxations are linked to the easing pressure on hospitals and progress of the vaccination campaign, which differs between regions. You should check the latest nationwide updates published by the Brazilian government on their website.

General Measures

The situation on wearing face coverings in public spaces varies around Brazil. Each state will determine local measures to limit the spread of COVID-19, and this includes regulation on public transport and on the opening of non-essential services (shops, restaurants, bars, beaches and other leisure activities). Please refer to official guidance for details of what preventative measures are in place and how you can comply with them.

A number of Brazilian states no longer mandate the use of face masks and face coverings while in public. However, the guidance may vary from state to state and there can often be different rules within different cities. You should refer to official guidance in your location for details of what preventative measures are in place and how you can comply with them.

There are additional local requirements to show proof of vaccination in order to access certain places, such private venues, including hotels, restaurants and gyms. The precise requirements may vary from venue to venue so you should check on compliancy requirements in advance.

Event requirements

At the Mautic Conference South America event we will be following the guidelines set out by the Brazilian government relating to COVID-19.

All attendees travelling to the event must meet the requirements for entry in respect of vaccination and/or negative PCR tests specified by Brazil, which can be found on the Brazilian Government website.  You must also use masks at all times on public transport to and from the event if required by the national and regional rules.

All exhibitors, sponsors, partners, speakers, participants, and staff will be required to show proof of full vaccination of COVID-19 or a negative COVID diagnostic test (PCR or antigen). If choosing to use the diagnostic test for entry, the test must be completed within 48 hours of the day of attendance.

In general, people are considered fully vaccinated:

  • 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or
  • 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine

We also require that all exhibitors, sponsors, partners, speakers, participants and staff take a lateral flow test each morning before coming to the event as a further precaution to ensure as best we can that those attending the event are not unknowingly carrying covid-19.

Upon arrival, staff will check for proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test and require demonstration of a negative lateral flow test - please have them ready to be checked on arrival.  There will be a limited number of lateral flow tests available at registration in the unlikely event that attendees have forgotten to take one before attending. Proof of vaccination can include your physical vaccine card or a printed / digital barcode from your country's official app/vaccination certification authority. If you have questions regarding any of these requirements, please email [email protected]

Attendance considerations

Individuals should not attend the event if they are COVID-positive, are exhibiting COVID symptoms (as defined by the CDC), or have been exposed, within 14 days before the event, to someone who was COVID-positive or showed COVID symptoms. Mautic Conference South America will issue a refund to anyone fitting these criteria.

At the event

We will be implementing a colour coded lanyard at the event, which enables you to tell others visually if you prefer them:

  • to keep at least 2 metres distance (red)
  • to shake hands but no closer (orange)
  • no distancing needed (green)

We request that attendees respect this colour code system and give others space as they need.
