Anime Weekend Atlanta 2021 Announces Mask and Vaccination Policy

The official website for the Anime Weekend Atlanta convention has announced that all participants will be required to wear a mask during its 2021 event. The mandate applies to “hotel staff, convention staff, AWA directors and crew, vendors, artists, exhibitors, and any human over the age of 2.”

The event staff also stated it is requiring vaccinations for “all participants,” but added, “If you are unable to receive the vaccine due to extenuating circumstances (age, religion, medical), you are participating in the event at your own risk.”

Vaccination cards will not be required to pick up a badge. However, attendees can also present vaccination cards while picking up their badges so as to get a “special sticker that completes [their] badge design.” The sticker will let other attendees know of a participant’s vaccination status.

The website also detailed what constitutes a mask and other COVID-19 pandemic related protocols, and also stated that the policy is subject to change.

The convention will take place October 28-31, 2021 at the Cobb Galleria Centre & Renaissance Waverly in Atlanta, Georgia.
