Developers that are attending the special June 6 WWDC 2022 viewing event at Apple Park in Cupertino, California will face COVID-related restrictions. However, they will also enjoy a special tour of the ring-shaped campus.
If you're visiting Apple Park for the #WWDC22 special event, make sure you check your registration because there's now a full schedule: breakfast, keynote, lunch, Platforms State of the Union, Meet the Teams, the ADAs, and three bookable tours to choose from! 🙌 pic.twitter.com/Hi5WF2LLP6

Developers will check into the Apple Park Visitor Center at 7:00 a.m., and will attend an open house at the new Apple Developer Center, which has so far been a mystery. At 8:00 a.m., Apple will serve breakfast at Caffe Macs, and then the keynote viewing will take place at 10:00 a.m.
Following the keynote, developers will eat lunch, and then the Platforms State of the Union will kick off at 1:00 p.m. From there, developers can choose three separate tours, which include a tour of the Apple Park Hills, the Fitness Center Area, and Caffe Macs. All three tours take place at 2:30 p.m., so developers must choose to attend one, and Apple says that space is limited.
Developers will then wrap up the day with the Apple Design Awards at 4:30 p.m. Pacific Time.
In emails sent on Tuesday, Apple told developers that they will be required to wear N95 masks while indoors, and they must show a negative FDA-approved COVID antigen test from the day before. Attendees will be required to upload their negative test results to Apple before the event.
The restrictions have been put in place due to guidelines that were updated due to an increasing number of COVID tests in California and other states.
