SPECIAL NOTICE: In the best interest for the safety and security of our fans, special guests, vendors and volunteers, please read through the following requirements and recommendations to attend the 2021 iMagicon convention.
Personal responsibilities of all attendees
By attending iMagicon, you acknowledge that you may be exposed to Covid-19 and other communicable diseases and assume the risks involved with being at the public event. As part of your personal responsibilities, iMagicon expects all patrons to help reduce the risk of transmission spread by doing the following:
• Do not attend if sick or feeling ill (mandatory)
• Wear a mask (highly recommended at this time; but may change if state/city mandates come back into play. Masked cosplay counts!). Please note that certain activities, special guests and vendors may require masks for close contact activities. Rule of thumb – bring a mask and wear it when you can’t social distance.
• Enter the building only at approved checkpoints (main south-facing doors)
• Participate in temperature checks/screenings at main entrance (mandatory)
• Carry personal hand sanitizer (recommended)
• Practice good hygiene (wash hands with soap/water or sanitize after you eat, sneeze, etc)
• RESPECT vendors and rooms requiring masks/hand sanitizing (REQUIRED). Some vendors/guests will have mask mandates to approach their booth. They have situations in their life where they cannot get sick. RESPECT their right to ask you to wear a mask. Some rooms or activities where individuals have long term close contact with one another may have a mask rule. Several gaming tournaments and a few special guests will be having mask mandates for their designated areas.
• Consider getting a rapid test or covid-19 test prior to the event to know your status.
• Do not attend if you have had an active positive Covid-19 test result and have not been medically cleared by health professionals to return to public settings
What iMagicon is doing to help slow the spread
While everyone assumes their own personal risk of exposure to Covid-19 and other communicable diseases while attending a public event, iMagicon is taking the following steps to help reduce the risk of transmission spread:
• Hand sanitizer at entries of facility
• Spreading out activities throughout the building and even added an extra room to aid with social distancing (in fact, the con might look “bare” compared to year’s past and this is by design)
• Soap in all bathrooms of facility
• Screening/temperature checking attendees at entry
• Routinely cleaning high–touch areas
• Providing sanitizer at close knit activities (such as draw offs, table top gaming, anime viewing room, etc)
• Reducing the number of high-risk activities. We are still being cautious at this time. Sorry if your favorite activity or gaming tournament was cancelled but it is deemed the best route to avoid activities where large groups are forced together for a long period of time.
• Issuing 2022 voucher to pre-purchase ticket holders who cannot attend 2021 if they fall sick in the 14-day window prior to the convention (only valid for pre-purchased tickets that have not been scanned for any day of 2021 convention). Voucher will be issued to name of ticket holder and must be utilized by ticket holder. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details on the policy.
• Asking staff, volunteers, guests and vendors to consider taking a covid-19 test prior to the event.
While we know this isn’t foolproof, with everyone’s help we can throw a safe event for everyone! #ConOn
