Health and Safety

Norwescon will follow all public health laws and emergency directives in force at the time of the convention. Unless local or national laws or guidelines change with respect to COVID-19 or large public gatherings, Norwescon 46 will not impose a mask requirement or a policy requiring proof of vaccination. Volunteer staff, members, and guests are strongly encouraged to test for COVID-19 prior to arriving on site, and may mask or not mask at their own discretion. Harassment of others for their choice to mask or not mask will be considered a Code of Conduct violation and may result in a forfeiture of membership/removal from the convention without refund, liability, or compensation. Although we will not be checking vaccination cards, Norwescon encourages all members to be vaccinated and to stay up-to-date with vaccinations against COVID-19 and other communicable diseases.

Please be advised that a risk of exposure to communicable disease, including COVID-19, exists in any event or public space, including at Norwescon. Prior to registering for and attending Norwescon, each member should read the latest CDC guidelines for prevention. By attending Norwescon, you acknowledge this inherent risk on behalf of yourself and any minor for which you serve as guardian.

Please do not attend Norwescon if you feel sick or test positive for a communicable illness, including COVID-19 within the period of recommended isolation or quarantine. If this occurs, your membership(s) will be transferable to other attendees, or may be rolled over to the following year, which we will be happy to help with if you contact
