We remain committed that Escapade is both safe and fun for everyone who attends. Escapade Covid policies will be as (or more) protective than local government guidance.
Proof of full vaccination (including bivalent booster) https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/stay-up-to-date.html or a doctor’s note is required to receive your badge; badges are required for access to any convention spaces. Email a photo or screen cap your vaccination record to email@example.com to save everyone time when you arrive at the hotel. Information on free COVID boosters can be found here: https://www.vaccines.gov If you have had a booster since 9/2/22, it was the bivalent booster.

In Escapade con space we require everyone to follow these policies for your own safety and the safety of other attendees:
Proof of full vaccination (including bivalent booster) or a doctor’s note is required to receive your badge; badges are required for access to any convention spaces.
High-quality masks (N95, KN95, or surgical masks) must be worn properly in convention space. We will have appropriate masks on hand if you need an upgrade. In the sharing spirit of Escapade, if you have extra masks you don’t need, please bring them to the consuite.
Air filters will be operating in all convention spaces.
Maintain distance from anyone who is not your roommate.
Snacks will be available to “grab and go” in the consuite. One room of the consuite will be reserved for eating. You are encouraged to take food to your room or the lobby. You may not take food into panel rooms.
For the Friday night dance party, we are working with the hotel to set up party food and the bar in the atrium, where there is much more air circulation. Stay tuned for updates.
We encourage self-testing before you travel, and before you enter convention space. Free COVID tests can be ordered here: https://www.covid.gov/tests Also, if you’re on Medicare you can get eight free COVID tests per month: https://www.cms.gov/newsroom/fact-sheets/medicare-covers-over-counter-covid-19-tests Your medical insurance may cover tests. If you have extra tests that you can share, please drop them in the consuite, and we will distribute them as needed.
Help us all stay safe and healthy!
