There are only two situations in which participants will be allowed to be unmasked: If you are actively consuming food or beverage; or, if you are fully vaccinated and are willing to show proof of that at registration. (We define fully vaccinated as having received at least two doses of an approved vaccine completed at least two weeks before the con. Acceptable proof will be a vaccination card, or picture of, or a link on your phone to a medical record). Anyone who provides proof of vaccination at registration will receive a wristband which must be worn during the convention.
Anyone found in violation of this policy will be given a verbal warning on first offense. A second violation will result in removal from the convention for the remainder of the weekend with no refund or recourse.
Individual presenters in programming or gamemasters in gaming or artists/authors/vendors in their respective areas all have the option of requiring masks with no exceptions if they so choose.
*This Policy is up for consistent review and may change as the local COVID-19 rates change.*
