People of the East,
July fast approaches.
As in-person events return to the kingdom calendar, I want to encourage everyone to carefully read the event announcements for the event you are attending.
We are all coming back with different comfort levels. Acting with understanding and kindness is going to make the transition back easier.
The East is following CDC/CPH and state/local protocols, and all gatherings of any size — practices, business meetings, events, etc. — must display the paragraph required by Society:
“Although the SCA complies with all applicable laws to ensure the health and safety of our event participants, we cannot eliminate the risk of exposure to infectious diseases during in-person events. By participating in the in-person events of the SCA, you acknowledge and accept the potential risks. You agree to take any additional steps to protect your own health and safety and those under your control as you believe to be necessary.”
Restrictions may vary between groups and sites hosting events. We ask that you are respectful of the rules in place for the event you are attending.
