Last year there were some mask break areas next to the food vendors in the game halls so that you did not need to buy food and then exit the hall. Are there mask break areas again this year in the Major Game halls? It appears from the maps that there is space but nothing was labeled as such.
All the hallways are un-masked area, how much room do you need?
I guess the point is that, potentially unlike last year, masks are not required in the hallways at all, so there is no need for a mask break area?
I don't see an area like that on the Exhibit Hall map. Since it's a vendor sell-out this year, I'm guessing that vendors will be using that space.
I'm pretty sure the OP is referring to the food places inside the various actual hall rooms rather than the outside hallway ones (like by Cardhalla)
I have not seen anything that says that you cannot eat or drink at the gaming table. Many of us were doing this in 2021.
edit: I checked again and the map does now show a Mask Break Tables are in Hall K by the Wyrmwood booth. I don't know if that's a hold over from last year that wasn't removed, or if there actually is a zone over there. My guess is the former of those 2 based on map layout and GenCon statements.
It was stated last year by Gencon that it was ok to drink at the table and dropping the mask to do that was fine. They just wanted you to drink and then put it back on and not keep it off because "I'm drinking my 128 ounce soda so, I'll be a bit".
