2024 COVID 19 Rules
We reference CDC guidelines when possible. Our goal is to prevent the game becomming a vector for COVID transmission, and to keep our players safe and healthy.
When possible, try to self-quarantine a few days before an event to give any possible symptoms time to become obvious. If you are sick, symptomatic for COVID or have been asked to quarantine due to exposure, PLEASE STAY HOME. Nothing that happens at this game is worth risking the health of someone else. Embodying Mudita means having concern for other people's health and safety.
Players must have received the most recently approved COVID booster: CDC Guidelines for Booster shots
Most insurance providers will reduce the cost to you significantly (or entirely). If you don't have insurance, please check out the Bridge program from the CDC. You can find a list of vaccine providers who support this program here.
At this time, our recommendation is that people who have medical reasons that prevent them from being vaccinated should not play Kishar. We try our best to be accommodating of people of all abilities and health concerns, including the immunocompromised, which is why we take vaccination so seriously.
Proof of Vaccination
Players must send the Organizers proof of vaccination electronically, before showing 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.
If your preferred name isn't your legal name, please let us know so we can use the correct name for you at events.
Currently, there is no mask mandate at Kishar. HOWEVER, we encourage anyone who wants to mask to do so, and recommend N95/KN95 masks. If you want to mask, bring a new mask for ever Day of the Event. Disposable masks will be available at game when supplies allow.
