Greetings Ansteorra!We are happy to see that the number of COVID cases across Ansteorra has decreased greatly. In addition, there have been no reports of spread of the illness from Gulf War.
With these considerations, we are removing all Ansteorra COVID safety protocols. Effective immediately:
1. Masks will no longer be required indoors or outdoors.
2. All feast limitations are removed.
3. All limitations on Children’s Activities are removed.
4. The the COVIDSafe policy in Oklahoma (checking of vaccinations/negative test) will no longer be implemented.
Remember, although masks are no longer mandated, please respect all who continue to wear masks at events. In addition, respect any request for social distancing. There are still many who have very serious health concerns. We will not take it lightly if we hear of any incidents of people being bullied for using these measures for personal safety. All events must post the signage that is in the link. This signage requirement is a Corporate mandated sign and will remain in effect unless they remove the requirement. https://www.sca.org/…/uploads/2021/05/052021EventSign.pdf
We will continue to monitor and implement safety protocols if the case numbers climb back up. Please continue to practice food safety and handling guidelines when it comes to feast and fighter support. For all food and drink arts and science entries, please see the Minister of A&S webpage for guidelines. https://ansteorra.org/…/food-entry-rules-and-guidelines/
Thank you all very much for continuing to make Ansteorra better during these troubling times.
