As of July 1st there are no capacity restrictions and masks are no longer required indoors for unvaccinated people in Marion County.
Gupta’s lab has studied how well antibodies generated after natural infection or immunity provided by vaccines can protect against the Delta variant, and found that the protection is sufficient."
I hope Gen Con decides to make masks optional and not require them. I haven't worn a mask in two weeks, except at airports and while taking public transportation. I haven't seen any businesses in Indianapolis that are requiring masks upon entry. I just spent 6 days at Disney World and masks are not required there, either, except on their transportation services. No masks in the parks, restaurants, hotels, pools. There was no social distancing going on and almost all of the plexiglass dividers had been removed. All tables at the restaurants were being utilized and were clearly not spaced 6 feet apart. It was great to enjoy a large gathering of people like that without having to wear a mask.
If someone wants to wear a mask for personal reasons, that's great for them. I sincerely hope that as the con gets closer and if Covid numbers continue to decline, Gen Con decides to make masks optional instead of a requirement.
With the "Delta" version flowing around, i wouldn't be shocked, to see mask mandates come BACK.
At this point if your not got a shot then that is on you we can not babysit them forever, if someone wants it they can get it anywhere for example my local walmart and kroger are taking walkins.
"Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett announced Tuesday Marion County will be lifting most coronavirus restrictions July 1.This includes allowing full capacity at restaurants, bars and sports venues. People who aren't vaccinated will also no longer be required to wear a mask indoors. However, Mayor Hogsett urged those who aren't vaccinated to still wear a mask."
Yes I know Gen Con can still require whatever it wants for attendees, but this removes yet more barriers that would force them to enact policies rather than allowing them to choose.
