In light of recent recommendations by the CDC as well as the La Crosse County Health Department, we are recommending that masks be worn at Coulee Con 2021 to protect against the highly contagious Delta variant of the virus. Although our current registration numbers show that 80% of attendees are vaccinated against COVID-19, recent information from the CDC shows that fully vaccinated individuals with Delta variant breakthrough infections can spread the virus to others. We acknowledge that wearing a mask may interfere with interactions and the convention experience, but we hope that everyone will voluntarily follow these recommendations to ensure that we are protecting the most vulnerable members of the community.
Coulee Con is adopting the following policies related to COVID-19
Anyone at the convention who exhibits symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell, vomiting, diarrhea) will be denied entry. If someone exhibits symptoms during the convention, they will be asked to provide a list of all individuals they interacted with during their time at the convention and then asked to leave.
Anyone who registers on-site will be required to provide first name, last name, and a phone number to ensure that we have information necessary for contact tracing.
We are amending our badge refund policy to add the following: If you purchase a badge online for Coulee Con 2021 and are unable to attend the convention, you will be provided with a complimentary badge to Coulee Con 2022. No questions asked. Any individual asked to leave because they exhibit symptoms of COVID-19 will likewise be provided with a comp badge for the 2022 show. If you are unable to attend, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know.
