Health and Safety Guidelines for CTBUH Events

Last updated 10 August 2022

The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) is committed the health and safety of those attending our events. CTBUH follows the local and national (CDC) public health mandates and guidance. As guidance and mandates evolve, CTBUH will update these guidelines.

Our guidelines and COVID-19 policy for attending CTBUH in-person events are:

  • Any person who feels unwell, has COVID-19 symptoms, or has received a positive COVID-19 test result in the past 5 days should not attend a CTBUH event. Anyone, regardless of vaccination status, who has had close contact with another person confirmed or suspected of having COVID-19 should also not attend a CTBUH event. Please contact our customer team at if you need to cancel your participation due to COVID-19.
  • Attendees visiting from outside of the venue’s locale should follow any applicable travel advisories regarding quarantine or testing for COVID-19. As of June 12, 2022, per the United States Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), air passengers traveling from a foreign country to the United States will no longer be required to show a negative COVID-19 viral test or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 before they board their flight. Please be advised this is subject to change and all attendees should review current travel advisories before flying.
  • As of July 2022, per the CDC, if you are a non-U.S. citizen who is a nonimmigrant (not a U.S. citizen, U.S. national, lawful permanent resident, or traveling to the United States on an immigrant visa), you will need to show proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before you travel by air to the United States from a foreign country. Only limited exceptions apply. Please be advised this is subject to change and all attendees should review current travel advisories before flying.
  • Regardless of COVID-19 vaccination status, all attendees should follow local public health guidance about wearing a face covering while attending an indoor event. The City of Chicago is currently recommending, but not requiring, use of masks while indoors.
  • Attendees agree to follow all health and safety guidelines and posted signage. CTBUH reserves the right to require attendees who do not follow our guidelines to leave an event immediately. Anyone who is disrespectful or discourteous to other attendees or staff may also be asked to leave.
  • Attendees understand that there is an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any public place where people are present. Those attending CTBUH events voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
