At this point in time, we still intend to hold Everfree Northwest 2021 on its scheduled dates of August 13-15, 2021. With mass distribution of vaccines, we are hopeful to be able to safely host our convention as planned. However, this could change at any time.
We intend to keep a diligent watch over the ongoing pandemic, and update the public if any major changes will affect the con. In the event of a cancellation, we will be quick to inform all our prospective attendees, and provide options for those who have already purchased badges and/or hotel rooms.
Despite these challenges, we are still determined to make Everfree Northwest 2021 the best it can possibly be. Things at Everfree this year will certainly be a little different, but it will still be the incredible weekend that you have come to expect. We stand determined to give it our all.
Regarding precautions and protocols to be implemented at the convention, Everfree Northwest plans to follow CDC recommendations. Some of our basic safety procedures will include:
- Increased hand sanitizing stations
- Mask enforcement in public areas
- Anything else mandated by the government or recommended by public health officials
Additionally, we are uncertain what regulations the state government might impose upon large gatherings once they are permissible again. Because of this, we are recommending that vaccinated individuals hold onto their Record Cards in the event that the government requires proof of vaccination to attend large gatherings. While we do not at this time intend to require attendees to show proof of vaccination, this decision is ultimately up to local and state authorities.
The community can expect a further update from us sometime in early June.
For now, and unless the possibility of holding the con this year disappears, we continue to look forward to welcoming you to Seattle this August!
