Safety Protocols


The Javits Center is open for business, and we are proud to serve as a part of New York’s economic resurgence. Our staff is working closely with our clients, government partners and industry stakeholders to ensure operations are as safe, efficient and effective as possible. In accordance with New York State and New York City guidelines, including the Key to NYC program, the following is required for admission to all events at the Javits Center, including all event organizers, contractors, exhibitors and attendees. The Javits Center also requires all visitors to wear face coverings inside the facility regardless of vaccination status.


  • Full COVID-19 Vaccination: People ages 12 and older are required to show proof they have received two vaccine doses, except for those who have received the one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
  • Children: Children ages 5 to 11 are now required to show they have received at least one dose of a vaccine. Starting January 29, 2022, children ages 5 to 11 must also show proof of full vaccination (two doses).
  • Identification: People ages 18 and older are required to show identification along with their proof of vaccination.

Approved vaccines include those authorized for emergency use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or World Health Organization (WHO). Please consult with your Event Solutions about the types of proof of vaccination.

Additional Measures


The Javits Center has implemented additional measures to enhance the safety of all visitors, including:

  • Installation of High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) air filters to reduce air pollutants throughout the convention center;
  • Installation of socially distanced seating in all food and beverage areas;
  • Installation of hand-sanitizing stations in public areas; and
  • Accreditation by the Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC), the industry’s highest standard for cleaning and disinfection.
