COVID-19 Protocol

While we hope that everyone arrives healthy and without incident, we know many have traversed long distances in confined spaces and life can be unpredictable. If you find yourself feeling ill (or having tested positive for COVID-19), please opt to self-quarantine and alert a member of the organizing committee at PTI@IU so we may assist with any necessary arrangements.

We encourage you to social distance. Masks and hand sanitizer are available at the welcome table.

The airport is located approximately 12 miles / 20 kilometers away from the meeting venue and is served by several modes of public transportation. We suggest using a private car, taxi, uber, or Lyft. The airport website has links to these options and the JW Marriott (the host hotel) has information about travel. There is no hotel shuttle to/from the JW and the Scheduled Bus Service does not stop at the JW.
