After nearly two years, I think it’s safe to say that COVID and all of its variants are here to stay for the long term.

We continue to do our part at Innovize to keep the COVID rates as low as we can by following the guidelines provided by the state of Minnesota. The majority of our associates have been fully vaccinated, and we’re curious to see how the new corporate vaccination mandate plays out. With nearly 250 associates, we’ll be required to make sure everyone at Innovize is either vaccinated, or can provide a negative COVID test on a regular basis if/when that mandate goes into effect.

We feel comfortable that we can provide a safe environment for anyone who wants to visit us, and we look forward to seeing you at your facility when you’re ready to have us.

In addition to the mask mandate being lifted a few months ago (it’s been great to see everyone’s face again!), we’re starting to see travel open back up for some of our customers. We’ve been busy in the last several weeks hosting tours and in-person meetings on our campus!

We’ve even been able to attend tradeshows again! Though the attendance at the shows have inevitably been down from what we’ve seen in the past, it was great making those face-to-face connections at MD&M West, BIOMEDevice Boston, and AACC! We hope to see you at some of the remaining shows we have on schedule this year:

  • ADVANCED LATERAL FLOW CONFERENCE – November 1-3, San Diego, CA, Hard Rock Hotel, Booth #19
  • MD&M MINNEAPOLIS – November 3&4, Minneapolis, MN, Minneapolis Convention Center, Booth #2218
  • MD&M EAST – December 7-9, New York, NY, Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, Booth #1638
  • BIOMEDEVICE SAN JOSE – December 8&9, San Jose, CA, San Jose McEnery Convention Center, Booth #716

While it’s very exciting to be working on some new COVID tests that give people more immediate results, the most exciting thing for us would be to be involved in your new project. Let us know how we can help!

Stay safe, and stay healthy!
