So, I don't recall any of those SF short stories (from the 1940's-50's-50's) magazines talking about a 21st century pandemic. So many things that they missed ... the internet, video games, microwave popcorn .....

Anyway, all our costuming/cosplaying venues are shut down for now, with no definite re-start date, I couldn't help but speculate when things might start happening.

Small SF conventions/ conferences < 1000 attendees
Required situation -- > 50% inoculation rate, open restaurants, facilities large enough to allow social distancing,  < 100 new Covid cases per day in state/province/Covid quarantine area.

Medium SF conventions/ conferences > 1000 and < 6000 attendees
Required situation -- > 70% inoculation rate, open restaurants, open stores, facilities large enough to allow social distancing,  < 10 new Covid cases per day in state/province/Covid quarantine area.

Large SF conventions/ conferences > 6000 attendees
Required situation -- > 90% inoculation rate, open restaurants, open stores, large sporting events allowed, facilities large enough to allow social distancing,  < rare new Covid cases per day in state/province/Covid quarantine area.


Sigh.  I am not expecting things to be open for a while.  But I do have masks that match all my costumes, because I don't think that is going to go out of style anytime soon.  And if all the Covid precautions have really knocked down flu season, maybe it will work on con crud.
