ArmadilloCon 2021 Health Policy

A printed copy of a negative COVID-19 test result, or, for those who are fully vaccinated,* proof of full COVID-19 vaccination will be required to attend ArmadilloCon 2021. The negative COVID-19 test result must be obtained within 3 days before attending ArmadilloCon. Thus, the earliest possible date to get a COVID-19 test from a healthcare provider to meet this requirement would be Tuesday, October 12. Printed test results should meet the requirements on the CDC Airline Checklist, including a state-issued photo ID that matches the name on the test result report for attendees 18 or older. Minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian responsible for providing their printed test results and testifying to their identity.

If opting to provide proof of vaccination rather than a negative test result, a printed Vaccine Card, or Vaccine Record showing that you are fully vaccinated, along with state-issued photo ID that matches the name on the document for attendees 18 or older is required. Minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian responsible for providing their Vaccine Card or Vaccine Record and testifying to their identity.

*A person is considered fully vaccinated 14 days after the second shot of a two-dose series (Pfizer/Moderna) or 14 days after a single-dose vaccine (J&J). The last possible date to get your second shot for entry on Friday, October 15, would be October 1.

Properly-Worn Masks Required

Properly worn masks covering nose and mouth are required for all ArmadilloCon members and guests in all convention spaces (Art Show, Dealers’ Room, Hospitality Suite, Programming, Registration Desk), except when actively eating or drinking. Failure to do so is a Code of Conduct violation and you may be subject to badge revocation.

Note that non-convention areas are not subject to this requirement, but are subject to any hotel requirements on mask wearing.
