As some furry folks may be aware, the provincial and city regulations have changed a bit since our last announcement. We have already reached out to our venue to confirm that we are still able to hold our event (We are!) and if we need to make any changes to continue to ensure that everyone is safe and healthy.
As of this announcement the following will now be in effect at our event in November (please remember all of these things are still subject to change depending on the provincial, city, and venue’s rules):
All attendees and staff are asked to maintain physical distancing of a minimum of 2 meters (6 feet), and to remain properly masked within the event space (this includes fursuiters)
There will be a COVID-19 symptom screening questionnaire prior to badge pick up.
Staff and attendees will be required to provide proof of full vaccination (final vaccination received at least 2 weeks prior) against COVID-19 before receiving badges and being permitted into event space.
Some personal information provided to CanFURence may be submitted to contact tracing services, only if required, in compliance with public health directives.
Some panels and main events will be held differently to ensure proper physical distancing and safety of attendees and staff
We will be providing our staff with additional safety plans and personal protective equipment where necessary.
Even with all of these efforts in place, we request that everyone consider the health and well-being of yourself, those within your personal life, and your fellow furs prior to joining us as we cannot ensure a 100% COVID-free weekend.
If any circumstance arises at any time in which you can no longer attend and you have already pre-registered, please send an email to us at email@example.com with the subject “Unable to attend” to have our Registration Team assist you.
If you have any additional questions or concerns that we may not have mentioned here, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
