Keeping COVID-Safe at Con
Norwescon's COVID policy for the convention includes requiring proof of vaccination for all members, masking, and implementation of prudent safety practices. The convention services team is leading a cross-sectional effort to determine how to implement items like vaccine status verification at check-in, configuration of physical spaces for social distancing, and monitoring compliance during con. Many details remain to be worked out, but a truly awesome team is working to get it done, under the guidance of safety manager Felice Nightengale. Stay tuned, and please write to email@example.com if you have any questions.
