However, please note that such participants:
  • MUST register to events on Indico.UN without exception (even those who hold UNOG ground entry passes).

  • MUST provide their mobile phone number on the registration form.  The number is "required for contact tracing purposes".

  • Should not attend the meeting in-person if they display any flu- or cold-like symptoms or if they are still awaiting COVID PCR test results. Participants MUST inform the secretariat if they are diagnosed with COVID-19 within 14 days after their last presence at the meeting. They should also inform the secretariat or UNOG Security if they begin to display cold- or flu-like symptoms while at the premises.

  • MUST respect all safety measures (i.e. not to come to the meeting in-person or the Palais des Nations if they feel sick, that the wearing of masks in and around conference rooms is required, physical distancing is being exercised, and inform the secretariat of UNOG Security in the case of developing COVID-19 during or following the meeting – see previous point).

  • If a participant at one of the events is confirmed as a COVID-19 case, the UNOG Safety and Security Service Chief will provide a list of participants who were present at the meeting to the Medical Service.  The Medical Service will assume responsibility for contact tracing.
