We cannot forget or ignore the fact that we are still in the throes of a pandemic. Covid 19 has not disappeared, we have merely come to terms with the new balance between life and living. Our attendance level will be determined by the Provincial Health orders, although our maximum attendance should be well below the levels set by then. While it is likely that masks will no longer be mandated, we recommend that they continue to be part of daily life when social distancing is not an option. Hand washing and increased hygiene is always a good idea, but it should be an integral part of your con routine. We are not able to require proof of vaccination, and considering that even the vaccinations are not 100% guaranteed, there will be a possibility that a member may contract Covid 19 at the event, or at the very least, ConCrud. We are doing everything reasonable to account for this, including running a virtual convention in parallel with VCON 2021, so that fans may enjoy the event to the level of their comfort.
