That's the thing about infectious diseases.  You aren't the only one taking the risk.  You are deciding for everyone if they should take the risk too.  Infectious diseases aren't only about you.


That's the bad part. At this point I'm so bored and depressed I'd go to Burning Man naked and touch EVERYONE just for something to do. I'm not afraid of getting it and I would accept the consequences (and long-term aftereffects) if I did.

But I won't kill other people if I can avoid it, so home I sit.

Well Burning Man was canceled, so that would end up being a pretty boring trip.

Atlanta Comic-Con has been given the green light for July 31-Aug 2.  Pretty sure that means DragonCon will go forward as scheduled too.

Well, that makes two for them...since Atlanta Comic Con is run by the same company as the also-greenlit Tampa Bay Comic Convention. (Also, the now defunct San Francisco Comic Convention.)

Here's an example of language being used with a nearby zoo that is reopening. Their reopen has a lot of limitations, but the following disclaimer (or something similar) is something I expect to see more of in the future.

I wonder if events might make folks sign something like when they buy tickets, etc.

It will be in the terms and conditions that we click that we read when we check out but never do because we’re in a rush.

We already do.  It's in the terms you agree to when you buy a ticket.

That makes sense.  The "I agree" that we never read.  :)

Here's an article about why it took so long to cancel SDCC.  Mainly the reasons were financial.  Insurance was a factor as were permits.  Of course the cancellation fees from both the convention center and the hotels would have been substantial.  They were able to mitigate those.

Thoughts on how a con such as SDCC could (eventually) happen again, while keeping everyone safe.

The con in Tampa in July and Atlanta in August canceled.  But there’s still one in Huntsville, AL in July.
