Prior vaccination and negative coronavirus tests mandated by a growing number of furcons

Furry fandom social events are slowly regaining traction as COVID-19 slows down. Thus, more furcons are needing attendees to get vaccinated or have a negative test prior. Some furcons also have said they will no longer allow exemptions based on religion.

Furcons are doing this after a few furries say they got COVID-19 after attending Megaplex, based in the US state of Florida. The furcon was not allowed to ask for vaccination proof according to local state laws. This led to loopholes and panic from attendees afterwards.

Another furry who claims to be a COVID-positive case said he is going to Denfur afterwards. He has been banned.

Conventions that at first did not install such a policy have faced immense public pressure to do so. This was further intensified following many rebounds of COVID-19 cases in regions globally.

Looking at our furcon status numbers, we have 50 cancelled, 3 deferred, 50 to hold this year and 14 furcons completed.


疫情与兽圈——展会对疫苗接种和核酸证明的强制要求日益增长

疫情形式逐渐缓和,兽圈内的社会活动正在逐步复苏。更多的兽展要求参展人员接种过疫苗或者有核酸阴性证明。部分兽展称,他们不会再因宗教禁忌原因豁免对疫苗或核酸的要求。

兽展这么做的原因是因为部分毛兽在参加过Megaplex后声称他们得了新冠。根据弗洛里达州的法规,兽展无权要求参展者出示疫苗接种证明。这就导致了有机可乘,更是引发了其他参展人的恐慌。

另一位核算阳性的毛兽表态说要之后去Denfur,接着他就进入了黑名单。

最初没有实行这些措施的展会不得不屈服于社会压力。随着全球各地疫情不断反弹,措施有增无减。

现在看全球兽展状况,有50个兽展被取消,3个被推迟,50个计划不变,以及个已完成举行。
