We are now officially 45 days away from Saboten Con 2021 and while we are excited to see everyone and get back to some sense of normalcy, we find ourselves battling a new variant of the COVID-19 virus throughout the United States and Arizona. We had hoped that by our show the US would have reached herd immunity, which would have helped keep everyone safe at our shows, unfortunately the US and Arizona have fallen very short of this goal which has put us, as a business, in a spot that we have to evaluate what is best for the community to keep people safe. After several discussions with key individuals we have come up with a revised COVID response that will be in affect for Saboten Con 2021.
The CDC currently requires everyone who is not vaccinated to wear a mask in public, and while we feel this is a good step we also fear that by our show things will have gotten worse due to the new Delta variant and lack of herd immunity in the US and Arizona. For these reasons we are going to implement a mask mandate for our event to help reduce the chances of getting infected at the show. We also know that many of you are vaccinated and would like to go without a mask if possible. We are going to offer the ability to show your vaccination card at registration to get a badge modification that will allow you to go throughout the show without a mask. This badge modification is required as our staff will be asking all those who are not wearing a mask and do not have the badge modification to put a mask on. We will be offering masks at registration for those of you that may have come to the show without one. We also know there are a few attendees that can not wear a mask for health reasons or age restrictions, for those who meet this requirement we will ask that you have your temperature checked at registration prior to obtaining your badge and badge modification.
We are saddened that we have to update our policy with these new changes, but the number one priority for our event is the safety of those who attend and we just don’t see any other options available to us at this juncture. We also wanted to release this policy change to give everyone the opportunity to get the vaccination prior to the show.
If you have already purchased a pass for 2021 and for what ever reason choose not to attend now due to this new policy change you can request your badge be rolled over to our 2022 show. We will not be offering any refunds per the terms and conditions that are clearly stated on our website during purchase.
* Policy is subject to change at any time without notice
