Okay, we agree… masks pretty much suck. It’s hard enough to wear one while I’m grocery shopping, but having one on for a full day of indoor Comic-Con panels seems pretty daunting. But looks like that’s what we’re gonna have to do—on top of proving vaccination… of course, these guidelines could change come November, so let’s pay attention. But in the meantime, here’s the information from SDCC.
From the San Diego Comic-Con Organizers
At all San Diego Comic Convention events, the health and safety of our stakeholders are our main priorities, and because of this we have implemented new policies and protocols based on state and local health guidelines, and we continue to closely monitor health recommendations as we prepare for Comic-Con Special Edition on November 26-28, 2021, at the San Diego Convention Center. We will continue to update these guidelines as they are available, so be sure to check this page often for the most up-to-date protocols.
In addition to following current healthcare and governmental guidelines, everyone attending Comic-Con Special Edition will be required to wear an approved face covering regardless of vaccination status. Face coverings should completely cover the nose and mouth, fit snugly against the sides of the face, and not have any gaps. For more information and requirements on acceptable face coverings, please click here.
In compliance with California state and local public health guidelines, everyone will be required to provide verification of full vaccination status or proof of a negative Covid-19 test taken within 72 hours of each day of attending the event to enter Comic-Con Special Edition.
Please note: these policies apply to all attendee groups, including but not limited to exhibitors, guests, staff, press, professionals, volunteers, and cosplayers.
Please be aware that adjustments may need to be made to policies and guidelines during the event in order to ensure the health and safety of all attendee groups, so we ask that everyone please follow the directions on informational signage and from all staff.
For specific information concerning the convention center policies please visit the San Diego Convention Center.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is another great resource and we encourage you to visit this site often for up-to-date information on preventative measures.
We are excited to gather again after such a long time apart. But we want to be sure everyone who attends is as safe as possible. We will continue to update our website as new information becomes available.
We look forward to seeing you at Comic-Con Special Edition in November.
