Although the SCA complies with all applicable laws to try to ensure the health and safety of our event participants, we cannot eliminate the risk of exposure to infectious diseases during in-person events. By participating in the in-person events of the SCA, you acknowledge and accept the potential risks. You agree to take any additional steps to protect your own health and safety and those under your control as you believe to be necessary.
Covid-19 measures have been updated on midrealm.org as of 8/21/22.
“In an ideal world we could come up with a one size fits all solution to the ongoing spread of COVID-19. However, this is never going to be the case. We can either protect everyone from viral infection, yet be out of step with peoples daily lives and experience in society. Or, we can continue to do as we have done all along, follow the most recent guidelines and science.
With the changes in CDC guidelines (Massetti et al, 2022) that were published during Pennsic we (Curia) have re-evaluated the current kingdom COVID guidelines.
Effective immediately we are discontinuing ALL COVID-19 related mask mandates and tracking. We still expect that if you test positive for COVID you not attend SCA events for 10 days unless you have two consecutive negative antigen tests taken 48 hours apart. We request that if you are sick with any virus that you reconsider your attendance at an event. Is it worth you being “that person”? If you attend an SCA event it is up to you to decide to mask, or not. If you attend an SCA event it should be assumed that you may be exposed to COVID-19 or other infectious agents, the same as if you go to a grocery store, eat in a restaurant, attend a concert or any other activity you can currently do without restriction in the states covered by the Midrealm.
We recognize that the SCA population does include medically fragile individuals, those individuals must now make the best choices for themselves based on their own risk factors and desires. We strongly recommend the vaccine and booster for all those who are eligible as the best way to reduce your risk of severe COVID-19, hospitalization and death. You may also wish to wear N95 or similar masks whilst attending our events. We also recommend you get your flu shot this year, the flu season in the Southern hemisphere was rough and influenza also kills.
The SCA corporate requirement of posting of the disclaimer for infection still is in effect. On the website and at troll, practices the following should be clearly posted.
Although the SCA complies with all applicable laws to ensure the health and safety of our event participants, we cannot eliminate the risk of exposure to infectious diseases during in-person events.
