Hello Everyone!

I have had many people writing to see what the Policy is for RustyCon.

Please see the information below.

 

RustyCon 2021 COVID - 19
Safety Policies and Procedures

Please be aware that, due to the rapidly evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, specific items in this policy are subject to change to align with federal, state, local, and convention center or hotel guidelines. Please check this page regularly or follow us on social media for updates to these policies and procedures.

Vaccination
You must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to attend RustyCon 2021.

• For those who are fully vaccinated, you need to bring proof of vaccination, along with your valid ID, to receive a special-colored wristband, which will allow you entry for the entire convention. You can bring the physical card, OR a printed or digital copy of the card. However, if you are not or cannot be fully vaccinated, for your safety and the safety of others, we respectfully ask that you not attend RustyCon 2021 — we'd love to see you in the future when it's safer.

Making, causing to be made, or using false or misleading documents or claims regarding one's vaccination status is a violation of our Code of Conduct. Because of the unique and elevated risk that this poses to public safety, anyone found to be attempting to circumvent this policy may receive a lifetime ban.

At this time, because the United States Food and Drug Administration has not authorized any COVID-19 vaccines for children under the age of 12, children under the age of 12 are discouraged from coming this year. But if you have no choice, please get them a COVID test 72 hours before the con.

Face Masks
The Hilton policy requires that all occupants wear masks inside the venue.

Per the mandates set by the state of Washington August 1, 2021, mask-wearing is mandatory indoors for all attendees, regardless of vaccination status.

Your mask must cover your nose and mouth. No chin diapers!
Masks are not required for outdoor events, but still recommended, especially if you're going to be in close proximity with other people.

The only places mask are not require are in the smoking section and the restaurant. But you will have to wear a mask to get into those area’s.

Physical Distancing
Please try to maintain 6 feet (2 meters) of distance from others, especially when you are around people you don't live with.
We've reduced the room capacity for several convention features:

•Panels are limited to seated capacity only. No standing room, sorry!
•The Dealers' Den has fewer dealers this year to allow for more space between tables. During busy hours we may have additional capacity limitations.
•You may see similar changes in other function spaces as well

Please keep watching the web site for changes. With how things keep changing from day to day, we at RustyCon will do our best to keep you informed.
 

Most Sincerely,

Michael Kenmir - Chairman of RustyCon 38
