As we enter into a post-COVID 19 world, Station-Unity will continue to strive to protect and prioritize the safety and health of all our participants. While Maryland’s mask mandate has been lifted, Station Unity’s staff would like to provide a safe environment all attendees. We will be following the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommendations, and industry best practices to ensure a clean and safe environment.
- We ask that mask must be worn at all times except for the following:
- Panel Presenters.
- Cosplayers during photoshoots.
- Any approved areas by Station Unity Personnel.
- While eating in restaurants or in café areas.
- Outside the building
- When communicating to a person that is deaf or hearing impaired.
- Bullying anyone for wearing or not wearing a mask will not be tolerated.
- Sanitizing stations will be located throughout the convention space.
- There will be no close contact events and no physical contact with guests.
- Vendors are encouraged to utilize cashless payment options (Tap to Pay, CashApp, Paypal, etc) to avoid contact.
- Failure to follow the guidelines will result in progressive warnings up to potential removal from the event.
**Per the CDC: “Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. There is no way to ensure zero risks of infection. The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. In general, the more closely you interact with others and the longer that interaction, the higher the risk of COVID-19 spread. If you decide to engage in public activities, continue to protect yourself by practicing everyday preventive actions.” Additionally, the CDC states that, “older adults and people who have severe underlying medical conditions like heart or lung disease or diabetes seem to be at higher risk for developing serious complications from COVID-19 illness.”
By attending Station-Unity, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19. Vaccinations are not mandated; we highly encourage attendees to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19.
