What COVID-19 and other safety precautions are in place?
Your health and safety are extremely important to us, and we are taking extra precautions to minimize the risk of transmission and keep our event safe. Please note that the safety measures outlined below may be updated as guidance from local and federal health officials changes:
We request that all in-person attendees take a COVID-19 test at home before attending the event or once you arrive (If testing at the event, please arrive 15 minutes early and wear a mask before a negative test.)
- If you test positive for COVID-19 prior to the event, stay home for at least 5 days.
- Stay home if you feel sick. *
- Masks are encouraged.
- Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you test positive for COVID-19 4-5 days after the event.
We ask that you keep in mind
- Some people may not feel comfortable giving or receiving hugs or handshakes.
- Everyone may make their own choice to wear or not wear a mask.
- Staff and volunteers will supply sanitizing wipes, hand sanitizer, masks, and other materials to guests to use.
- There is ample space in our venue to facilitate physical distancing.
*Symptoms include, but are not limited to, fever, chills, cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle aches, body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, nausea, congestion, runny nose, vomiting.
Registrants will be informed of any updates to these safety measures as they change.
We want all guests to feel safe and we trust that attendees will take action to protect themselves and others. We encourage guests to turn on exposure notifications via WANotify: https://doh.wa.gov/emergencies/covid-19/wa-notify, a completely private and free tool that exchanges random, anonymous codes with the phones of people you are near who have also enabled WA Notify. You will get an alert if another WA Notify user you’ve recently been near later tests positive for COVID-19 and follows the steps to anonymously notify others. This app is available in 30 languages.
The CDC states that vaccinated people, who are also up to date on their booster shot, are well protected against COVID-19 and that gatherings are safer between those who are fully vaccinated. As of September 2022, 76.3% of Washington residents (90.5% in King County) have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. 69.1% have received both doses and 58.1% have received a booster (88.0% and 64.7% for King County, respectively). https://doh.wa.gov/emergencies/covid-19/data-dashboard#Vaccination

- If you find yourself the target of harassment, or experience problematic behavior, please report this information to our staff and we will address the situation.
