We've had all the tools we needed all along to have been able to have comic-con in 2021.  We didn't need a vaccine.  We didn't need a miracle drug.  We just needed a government and people to take covid seriously.  We got neither.  Countries that did take it seriously from the top down have dealt with covid.  At least one is covid free.  In those countries they freak out when there are occasionally 30 or even 6 new cases country wide.  They contain it.  We shrug at 40,000 new cases a day and head to a bar at the beach.

It's not rocket science.  It comes down to 2 things.  Wear a mask.  Stay at home.  Why is that so hard?

On the positive side, I think the tide is turning on masks. People who wouldn't wear it before are starting to wear it. Staying home is another story.

Has cci said anything recently about selling the returned badges. Maybe not to the public but for badge holders who want to buy other days.

Due to the continuing uncertainly of public gatherings during the Covid-19 pandemic, there will be no badge sales for Comic-Con 2021. With the cancellation of Comic-Con 2020, badge holders were given the option to either receive a refund or rollover their badge for Comic-Con 2021, for this reason we do not believe it is possible to sell additional badges at this time.

I'm fine with whatever they do, because I rolled over my badge, but I find this a little confusing.
They say there won't be a badge sale, but then they end the statement with 'at this time'.  Does that mean there absolutely will not be a badge sale for 2021 or that they're still waiting for new information.   ???

I asked CCI and they seem to clarify no Open Registration for 2021.

QUESTION OR ISSUE:

RE: Badge info badge now says "There will be no badge sales for Comic-Con 2021 ." Was this in regards to Returning Registration additional days only? If not, could CCI add "at this time" to the sentence "The information below was for the Comic-Con 2020 badge sale and is for reference only. There will be no badge sales for Comic-Con 2021."

Sorry, I'm still a little confused.  What am I missing. 

"...at this time" implies things could change down the road (IMO).  If there is definitely not going to be a badge sale, I would remove that phrase altogether.
