ADDITIONAL COVID-19 SAFETY RULES

The covid-19 pandemic/endemic will be an ongoing process in 2022. We can't predict how covid-19 will develop, but we will do our best to create a safe bubble for everyone during our events.

To do so, we will have to adjust to the situation as given when we approach the date of the events in October 2022.

This means we possibly have to ask everyone to agree with:

- some level of vaccination or booster upgrades necessary at that time;

- some level of testing necessary at that time;

- some level of following local government and travel rules at that time.


Article 3
