COVID 19 Rules

UPDATE 5/2021: I think we will all be happier and feel more comfortable knowing that people are following the game's COVID vaccination rules. As such, we'd like to request proof of vaccination electronically, before people show up at game. This will simplify check-in a lot, because we won't have to have separate procedures for before we verify your status.

Please send a scan of your vaccination card (you may strike "Date of Birth" but we need all the other parts) or an equivalent medical record / confirmation to the Organizer email (see the bottom of this page) prior to the first game date you plan on attending. We will keep a list of all players from whom we have received this information, but we will not otherwise retain records beyond what's already retained via sending an email. If you don't want to send this in the clear you may encrypt a copy and send decryption keys via a separate medium, such as Messenger.

Please help us out by doing this WELL in advance of game. We will write plot and briefings ONLY for players for whom we can confirm this status.

We’ll be watching CDC guidelines about what is and isn’t recommended. Currently (4/2021) these say:

“You can gather indoors with fully vaccinated people without wearing a mask or staying 6 feet apart.
You can gather indoors with unvaccinated people of any age from one other household (for example, visiting with relatives who all live together) without masks or staying 6 feet apart, unless any of those people or anyone they live with has an increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19.
You should still take steps to protect yourself and others in many situations, like wearing a mask, staying at least 6 feet apart from others, and avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated spaces. Take these precautions whenever you are:

  1. All players must receive a COVID19 vaccine (this means all doses required for your particular vaccine) and wait the two weeks after the last dose OR present a medical exemption (signed by a doctor, explaining why you are medically exempt). No religious or 'conscience' exemptions. Each player must sign a COVID waiver stating that their vaccination information is accurate, and that they understand that there is no 100% protection against communicable disease, meaning they may still be exposed in any gathering.

  2. If ANY unvaccinated people are present (within 10 feet) in an indoor area, players should wear a mask (a cloth covering that fits tightly around their nose and mouth) and should not unmask while those people are present. Unvaccinated people should eat/drink outside, in private rooms, or while the only people present are members of their ‘pod’ (people they live with).

    No one will be penalized for wearing a mask in any way, or encouraged to violate their own personal safety standards. If determining when an unvaccinated person is present proves burdensome, we may instead ask everyone to mask while indoors and within 10 feet of any player not in their ‘pod’.

  3. The site building's common surfaces will be sanitized when we arrive and the kitchen will be sanitized before cooking any meals. Players are advised to sanitize sleeping quarters.

  4. All players are asked to have washed / sanitized any costumes and props prior to bringing them to game.

  5. If you are requesting a Medical Exemption, we DO NOT NEED TO KNOW the condition. We need a letter (on letterhead) from a physician (or NP, etc) stating you have a medical reason that prevents you from receiving the Vaccine. Additionally, we need a letter (from you) authorizing us to call the physician (or NP, etc) and confirm that the letter is legitimate. At no time will we ask what the condition is.
