The organizers of this week’s San Diego Comic-Con are requiring “all attendee groups, including but not limited to exhibitors, guests, staff, press, professionals, volunteers, and cosplayers…to wear an approved face covering regardless of vaccination status.”
In case there’s any doubt in year three of the pandemic what an approved face covering looks like, the organizers add the following: “Face coverings should completely cover the nose and mouth, fit snugly against the sides of the face, and not have any gaps.”
All attendees are also required to provide verification that they are fully vaccinated — two shots — or provide proof of a negative test taken within 72 hours.
As part of that, attendees must download a “Health Pass” that will be used to quickly verify testing and/or vaccination status. All those who so verify will be given a wristband which will allow entry to the Convention Center.
