COVID Policy Reminder

Arisia 2024 will require masks in all convention spaces unless they are otherwise marked as mask-optional. The hotel does not have a mask mandate, which means there are likely to be unmasked individuals in public areas of the hotel. Masks in Arisia spaces must be a minimum of a medical mask with a filter. We encourage use of higher filtration masks such as N/KN 95 or KF94. Attendees are strongly encouraged to obtain the updated COVID vaccine released this fall. We expect people to stay home from the convention if they are feeling sick or have known exposure to COVID in the week leading up to the event. We also expect people who become ill while at the convention to isolate in their hotel rooms or return home, test for COVID, and inform the Safety division of a positive result. More details are available here.
