# COVID-19 WARNING

We have taken great health and safety measures to protect our guests, volunteers, and staff. Please adhere to all posted instructions and policies while attending Dream Con.

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 Dream Con, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.  As always, thank you for your support and patience. We look forward to seeing you at Dream Con this year!
