The Oxford Farming Conference

Delegate Information 2022

Covid Protocol

  • We will require a Covid passport, or PCR test, from all delegates upon arrival and registration.  
  • We will also expect delegates with a Covid passport to have completed a daily Lateral Flow Test (LFT), register it on the Government’s website and show the confirmation text message received on arrival at the OFC venues 
  • Do not attend the event if you need to self-isolate, if you are displaying any symptoms or have been asked to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace, are required to isolate after travel, or because they are displaying any COVID-19 symptoms. 
  • Delegates will be required to wear masks whilst moving around all OFC venues.  
  • Hand sanitiser is located throughout the venue, and delegates encouraged to use frequently. 
  • We are investing in HEPA filters, which remove airborne viruses and bacteria, for all OFC venues 
  • Ventilation throughout the venue will also be via windows and doors. In the colder times, windows will be closed during talks, and then opened during breaks. 
  • The Examination Schools staff will be carrying out increased touch point cleaning and catering will be Covid compliant. 
  • Distancing is not mandatory, but advised to allow for personal space where possible 
  • We have previously announced that OFC numbers will be limited by one third to give delegates more physical space. Added to this, delegates will be able to watch the conference in two additional rooms to the main auditorium if they feel safer in a more spacious environment.
