BritCon wishes to provide an environment at which guests and attendees feel they can safely interact.
Currently, Washington State, specifically King and Snohomish counties, have higher COVID 19 infection and death rates than the national average, and higher than they were at this time last year. We are mindful that many of our community have compromised health. Therefore, we have implemented the following vaccination, testing and masking requirements:
Attendees of BritCon 2022 must provide proof of vaccination or a negative lab test done within 48 hours of the start of the convention (Friday August 5th at 6 pm). BritCon will not allow unmonitored home testing.
The following tests, with proper documentation, will be accepted. It is reasonably priced and offers a quick result.
In addition, BritCon is requiring masks while in any convention space, with limited exceptions.
Masks must be worn properly, covering both nose and mouth, and may be either:
· KN95 or equivalent without valves
· Medical Grade masks
· Fabric masks with a minimum of 2 layers.
Bandanas, gaiters, mesh masks and single layer fabric masks will not be accepted. While face shields may be worn, they are not acceptable substitutes for a mask.
The exceptions are:
· While actively eating or drinking
· While participating in photographs with all participants agreeing
· When on a panel with agreement of all panel members
· Masquerade contestants, while on stage
Guidelines and requirements may be subject to change.
