Due to the widespread COVID-19 pandemic years ago, large-scale events such as Coachella and Comic-Con were delayed to help reduce the spread of the infectious disease. However, now just a few years later large-scale events have returned, but with caution.
Recently, it has been reported that the organizers of this week’s San Diego Comic-Con are requiring “all attendee groups, including but not limited to exhibitors, guests, staff, press, professionals, volunteers, and cosplayers…to wear an approved face covering regardless of vaccination status.”
All attendees are also required to provide verification that they are fully vaccinated (two shots), or provide proof of a negative test taken within 72 hours upon arrival. Attendees must also download a “Health Pass” that will be used to quickly verify testing or vaccination status. All those who verify using the “Health Pass” will be given a wristband which will allow entry to the San Diego Convention Center.
The Comic-Con web site indicates that “people who don’t comply with the face masking requirement will be removed.”
