While event restrictions are lifted, COVID is still affecting them, from venues and vendors being short staffed to guests still being concerned about traveling.
As of January 18, 2022
If you want me to wear a mask, I will but I do not require masks to be worn. I am fully vaccinated and have been since April 22, 2021 and have been boostered 2 times. I had COVID in July and plan to get the omicron vaccine in mid October following CDC guidelines.
