COVID Guidance

(Updated on May 24, 2022)


 We, at Mr. International Rubber, are following the advice and guidance of the United States Centers for Disease Control, the Illinois Department of Public Health,  and the Chicago Department of Public Health as we plan for this year’s gathering. As this continues to be an evolving pandemic, we ask for your patience. 

 We are committed to producing a safe, fun and friendly, in-person event for those who can attend; and a vibrant online schedule of events for those who cannot attend in person.

 At this time, we are offering the following guidance for MIR26 attendees:

  • We are requiring all MIR26 attendees to be immunized against COVID-19.  Proof of vaccination will be required for admission to MIR26 events. Please consult with your national and local healthcare authorities to find vaccination sites near you.
  • Each day of MIR we ask that you assess your own personal health before attending. If you feel sick, are running a fever, or experiencing other symptoms of illness, we ask that you refrain from attending and take care of your own health so that you may return the following day, or the following year.
  • Maintaining a photo of your proof of vaccination on your phone is strongly recommended. 

We cannot anticipate every possible scenario. We respectfully ask that each person who attends MIR take everyone's health and well being into consideration so that we can all have a safe, fun, and healthy weekend!

We will do our best to ensure that this year’s event is safe for everyone, but ask for your assistance in helping us achieve that goal.

(Please note, these guidelines are subject to change, based on the evolving guidance and circumstances of the pandemic.)
