Though with Gen Con having the stadium there will be much fewer non-con people in the ICC
Mike - Any chance there's going to be a health update before event registration on Sunday? A lot has changed since March (case count flat, fatalities down 80%, etc.). I know several groups with mixed people (Mask/No Mask, Fully Boosted/Vaccine/No Vaccine) are waiting to see if there is anyway that they can attend as a group.
May 15 really becomes the date of no return for these groups as event coordination becomes a detractor to navigate. An update would be appreciated. Thanks.
So how long is the proof of vaccination good for? I've received the first main one in March 2021, the next one in April 2021 and the third one (booster) in November of 2021. We are going to need to know the cutoff date for our proof of vaccination status soon to schedule things to get the timing correct for GenCon.
Although, probably a policy that is yet to be determined.
Been lurking and watching the forums on this for a while. I am in the one shot J&J boat as well, I am not getting anymore for any reason. I have had this virus once before and once after the shot, wasn't much different for me either time. I really want to focus on gaming, rolling dice, and having fun. Looking forward to some final word and it would be nice if it comes before June 17th, thanks
Currently CDC considers pfizer/Moderna 2-dose or J&J one dose as ‘Fully Vaccinated’
The window to meet this low bar is coming up:
-Pfizer would require first shot no later than 6/29
-Moderna no later than 6/22
-J&J no later 7/20
If first booster is required it is already too late if you’re completely unvaccinated.
if you completed your vaccine regimen after April 3rd you’re not eligible to be boosted before Gencon (4month after fully).
Just read in the new update about vaccination and masks being required. Feeling a bit conflicted about the statement that "the majority want the masks to continue". I have no doubt that is what they are hearing...but in looking at masking practices and polling, the two don't appear to match up. Case in point: a majority of those polled say that they want mask mandates in public transportation. However, when you actually go to an airport, you'd be lucky to count 10% masked persons there. The polling just doesn't match what people actually do. There is nothing stopping people from voluntarily masking, but when it comes to an individual making their own risk assessment, it appears that most are fine going without.
With the current level of vaccination/natural immunity out there, I just wish that individuals could be left to determine their own level of risk acceptance. GenCon can require what they will; I still hold out hope that we'll get to masks optional, but it feels like it gets less likely as we move closer to August.
I’m one of the majority that would like masks requirements to be in place.
New health update? Isn't the existing one from January?
I'm with you, though, about how would they know that with any level of confidence? Anecdotally...? Not a great way to make a claim like that.
