LA Comic Con returns with new safety precautions for December live event
Pop culture fans rejoice – after a two-year hiatus, LA Comic Con will be returning with an in-person convention this year!
To ensure the safety of participants, guests and workers, the Con will employ a number of new health and safety measures. Based on guidelines from the Los Angeles Department of Public Health, everyone present will be required to show proof of vaccination.
Check out the full list of health and safety changes for this year’s event below:
- Three entrances (one in the south hall and two in the west hall). Entrances will use more than 20 magnetometers to spread out and speed up COVID-19 and security checks.
- Two checkpoints: a vaccination verification station / negative COVID test then security. Free PCR tests (results available in 15 minutes) will be available for those who have not verified the vaccine.
- All convention participants must wear face covers while attending the event.
- Cleaning LA County and CDC standards followed before, between, and after all sessions.
- Additional space. With over 1.2 million square feet of exhibit space (double the space in 2019), fans will have plenty of room to spread out and maintain safe distances.
“LA Comic Con is committed to providing a safe environment for this year’s event as we welcome fans to the LA Convention Center with more space and content than ever before,” said Chris DeMoulin, CEO of Comikaze Entertainment , the parent company of LA Comic Con. “We are delighted to see everyone in person and considering all that we have been through over the past 18 months, we want to make sure that the fans, staff and our celebrity guests feel comfortable and welcome. as we adopt the latest public health policies and guidelines to keep everyone safe.
While a number of security measures have been put in place, LA Comic Con recognizes that not all fans will be comfortable attending live events in person. This year’s event will therefore also offer virtual streaming experiences and online shopping for those who cannot attend in person.
LA Comic Con runs from December 3-5. You can still buy tickets here.
