COVID-19 Safety Measures

The SIU constantly monitors the rapidly evolving global health landscape in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and is confident that it can continue to host safe in-person events to bring urologists together.

Some of the precautions taken by the Renaissance-Polat Istanbul hotel include:

  • Verification of proof of negative PCR test results for all registered participants
  • Mandatory masking within the hotel vicinity (only exceptions will be when guests are seated to eat or drink in designated areas)
  • Temperature will be taken for all registered participants upon entry to event
  • Physical distancing of at least 1 metre must be maintained between people from different households
  • Restaurants, the fitness center, and other common areas have been carefully arranged to comply with social distancing rules
  • Hand sanitization stations are available throughout the venue
  • All high-touch areas such as elevator buttons and door handles are frequently disinfected
  • All staff are required to wear a face mask as part of their uniform. Transparent plexiglass shields are placed in the restaurants
