COVID & Safety

OR Manager

At the OR Manager Conference, ASC Leader Summit and PACU Manager Summit, we prioritize your health and safety. Below are resources for you to view, regarding our commitment to safety. 

McCormick Place Convention Center

McCormick Place has examined all the buildings on campus and has begun implementing changes to enhance public health. This includes:

  • Adding new technology, such as increasing the number of touch free, automatic doors and allowing non-automatic doors to be propped open to minimize touches by guests and staff
  • Incorporating new signage process for elevators and escalators
  • Rearranging eating in common spaces to allow for social distancing
  • Ensuring the highest possible air quality by utilizing our team or building engineers who will regularly verify compliance within McCormick Place with ASHRAE standards, including increased frequency of filter replacement.
