Thank you to everyone who has reached out to Furry Migration asking what our COVID-19 policy will be for 2023. We have delayed an update due to the ever-changing nature of this virus. However, the community has made it clear they are looking for an understanding on what to expect at Furry Migration 2023 sooner rather than later. Our underlying goal since the formation of this convention has been to keep attendees safe, and to avoid any undue risk to the attendance of Furry Migration. Virus or no virus, Furry Migration wants our congoers to be safe at our convention. To that end we have been actively monitoring local, regional, and national infection rates. Monitoring local and national governmental guidance. Monitoring policies at larger event venues. Watching what other events and convention policies are, and the results of those choices. In addition, we stay mindful of individuals who are at a heightened risk of complications, and how these policies can impact the ability of those people to attend our convention. We have taken all these things into consideration. We understand and can appreciate that whatever choice we make will not be welcomed by all, but when we make a policy decision, we are doing so for the totality of our attendance.
At the time of this writing, it has been decided that for Furry Migration 2023 we will be lifting the COVID-19 vaccination, and mask requirement. We will continue to monitor the situation as we approach the convention (September 8th, 2023) and adjust our policy based on infection rates, and state / federal guidance. We do not take this decision lightly but feel that the risk to our attendees by removing these mandates is negligible, at this time.
We will happily refund or roll over your registration. Whatever you want. Please note though that we do have a cutoff date of Aug 26 at 11:59pm for refunds related to our COVID-19 policy.
We would prefer that you avoid being in close contact with attendees. It’s understandable that you want to attend the convention, but even if it’s not COVID-19 risking others health with any type of virus really is not cool. The convention will be back next year, and we will have an online presence again this year. So, you won’t miss out on everything.
