Hello ConCoctioneers -
Instead of our usual witty banter and fun info about Guests and Games and other things that are happening in ConCoctionLand, this announcement is about a slightly more serious topic:
If you’ve been to a con, any con, you’ve either had ConCrud or have heard about it. It’s real. And it sucks.
Here’s the thing, there are a couple of bugs floating around this year that are potentially a bit worse than the average Crud. There is a nasty flu strain going around (H3I2) that was not included in most flu shots, and of course, there is COVID 19, also known as the new coronavirus.
Currently our concerns are at about a two on a scale of one to ten; not overly high, but certainly worth consideration. These issues are on our radar and we’re talking about them.
We’re aware of it, we’ve got some plans already in place, and are working on some additional things.
We are working with The Bertram to make sure that there are hand sanitizer stations located throughout the hotel, as well as desktop sanitizer bottles at most of the fixed gathering locations. The hotel staff will be making additional checks in the bathrooms to make sure all soap dispensers are working and full. We will also have some moisturizing lotion available, because hand sanitizers can really dry your skin out.
That’s some of what WE can do.
Now, let’s talk about what YOU can do.
It’s really simple. As much as we’d love to see you, if you’re sick, please stay home. Anyone that has preregistered for ConCoction who decides to stay home due to illness, and notifies us by noon on Thursday the 19th will be able to roll your registration and payment over to 2021.
If you are joining us for the weekend, we ask that you please use extra diligence in proper hand-washing and use the sanitizers that are available often.
If we all work together on these issues, we can ALL have an awesome time at Cleveland ConCoction 2020.
