Updated PCR Test Procedure at SPIEF 2022 Approved

31 May 2022
Утвержден обновленный порядок сдачи ПЦР-теста на ПМЭФ-2022

All guests at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum will be required to take a COVID-19 test upon arrival, which will be valid for the entire duration of the Forum. The decision was taken by Rospotrebnadzor due to the ongoing stabilization of the epidemiological situation with COVID-19.

An additional PCR test is required for participants of the Forum plenary session no earlier than 24 hours before the day of the plenary session.

All Forum participants, media representatives and staff must take a PCR test at a dedicated testing centre operated by Rospotrebnadzor within 24 hours of their arrival at the Forum venue.

The test results are automatically uploaded into the accreditation system. A negative PCR test for COVID-19 activates access to the venue by an accreditation badge which will be valid for the entire duration of the Forum (1518 June 2022).

A set of anti-COVID-19 measures includes setting up air recirculators and decontamination devices at the venue, thermal imaging monitoring, and digital collective immunity recording systems.

It should be reminded that on 27 May, amendments to Decree No. 122 on coronavirus restrictions came into force in St. Petersburg, as a result of which mandatory mask wearing was cancelled. Mask wearing at the Forum will now be optional but recommended.

The addresses and opening hours of the dedicated testing centres and also the cost of the test are available on the official website of the event.

The 25th St. Petersburg International Economic Forum will be held on 1518 June 2022.
