WHEN TO GET TESTED?
All Forum participants, media representatives and staff who will be present at events must take a PCR test for COVID-19.
One PCR test to access the Forum venue must be taken no earlier than 07:00 on 9 May (GMT+3) and no later than 24 hours before visiting the Forum venue. Results will be provided within 24 hours.
The test result is valid for visiting the venue until the end of the Forum.
Accreditation badges are only activated, rather than distributed, on the basis of PCR test results. It is possible to take a test after receiving an accreditation badge or vice versa.
WHERE TO GET TESTED?
Testing will be carried out at the Forum’s dedicated testing centres, which are provided by Rospotrebnadzor in Moscow and St. Petersburg.
The results will be uploaded to the Forum information system automatically. The results of tests taken at other laboratories will NOT be accepted for access to the venue.
