Health and Wellness at STAREAST

We’re so excited about getting together in Orlando for an in-person conference bringing together software testing practitioners, industry experts, and organizations from around the world. The health and safety of everyone at STAREAST 2022 are of paramount importance to us.

STAREAST continues to monitor health and safety measure guidelines from the World Health Organization (WHO), the US Federal Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and the Florida Department of Health. We will be ensuring that all applicable federal, state, and local protocols are being followed, and we have reviewed the CDC guidance for events. In addition, we will continuously evaluate our health protocols and make updates as medical recommendations evolve. As we do, we’ll update this page so you know what you can expect at STAREAST 2022.
