Midwinter Gaming Convention takes the health and safety of our Guests seriously, and in planning the 2022 show we are looking to health organizations and local leaders for guidance in making our 2022 policies. We will be intentional in our approach to health and safety measures.
Given the fluid nature of things, we will make our official policy statement in December, when it is more clear what the current situation will be in January.
In the meantime, we are working with The Hilton to establish what we are able to do as a convention, given that we will not be the only group present in the hotel the weekend of January 13-16th, and understanding there are many places within the Hilton that are open to the public.
We will only have control over the spaces directly included in our contract.
A few things we know will be happening during the show to facilitate safety are; Linenless tables in the gaming spaces, reduced capacity in rooms with greater space between tables, time between scheduled events to allow for sanitization of tables/rooms, no 24 hour gaming in the Board Game Room to allow for deep cleaning. We are intentionally scheduling fewer games at each table and fewer tables in each room.
At this time we do anticipate masking for all individuals in the event spaces. IF this changes with improved health situations, we will support any GM who wishes to have masks worn during their event and will aid them in connecting with their players to ensure all are aware of the situation.
An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and Guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable. By visiting Midwinter Gaming Convention you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
We encourage people to get vaccinated.
