As we adapt to a Covid-19 world, we continue to strive to protect and prioritize the safety and health of all our participants (attendees, staff, guests, exhibitors, and volunteers). We will be following the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommendations, the Esports Stadium’s policies, and industry best practices to ensure a clean and safe environment.
We have implemented the following health and safety procedures:
Please be sure to familiarize yourself with the Esports Stadium's Covid protocols, and note, Dream Con will take place only on the east side of the arena. The west portion of the building has been allocated to an event not affiliated with Dream Con or RDCWorld.
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.”
Although vaccinations are not mandated, we highly encourage attendees to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 at least two weeks prior to convention.
By attending Dream Con, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
In addition to following all Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) guidelines, we are working closely with the City of Arlington to ensure all operations meet or exceed all recommended health and safety standards. We will be practicing health and safety by creating adequate space between gaming stations, providing proper sanitization resources and regular cleaning of equipment and surfaces. Gaming Center staff and customers will be required to wear a mask at all times. Any guests who do not properly wear their mask after receiving a verbal warning will be asked to leave. Masks will be provided to customers with the purchase of game time (available upon request). We will also be taking the temperature of all guests and staff before entry into the venue. Anyone with a temperature greater than or equal to 100.0 degrees Fahrenheit will not be permitted to enter the facility.
Please do not enter the venue if you’re experiencing any of the following signs or symptoms:
