Piercing Ken Thoughts: So as you can see, the rules have mostly remained the same and this mask policy is still in effect in all of the Broadway houses so it kinda makes sense that the BroadwayCon mirrors this stance. Since last we spoke some of the actual Broadway rules have changed and you no longer have to show proof of vaccination which I wasn’t crazy about them changing since it ended some of my day to day work doing that COVID safety stuff I’ve mentioned on a few posts and socials. With the event coming up in a few short months you don’t have a lot of time to get vaccinated if you wish to go because there is a two-week incubation period for the juice. Now you know the scoop and maybe I will see some of you there. I will be filling out the media credentials form after I press publish and if all goes according to plan I will be there documenting and photographing the stuff that I find of interest. See you next time my friends, please keep on the safety and wellness path because I still think we have a ways to go in this.
