COVID-19 Health & Safety

We take the health & safety of everyone at Flame Con seriously.

Please review the show’s policies and refer to government org sites for more details on preventing the spread of contagious illnesses.

Let’s keep our community safe!

Face Coverings

In order to limit the spread of contagious illnesses, all attendees are required to wear face masks while indoors in the convention space. Please see the CDC’s mask guide for preferred face coverings.

Face coverings should be close-fitting and cover your nose and mouth, and must be worn in addition to costume masks.

Face coverings can be removed when eating or drinking and by panelists while they are socially distanced on stage.


Social Distancing

This year’s event is being physically designed with space to promote social distancing. Wherever you can, please leave distance between yourself and others, and avoid physical contact like hugs or handshakes.



This includes precautions like enhanced cleaning procedures and additional sanitation stations throughout the building.

Flame Con provides hand sanitizing stations. We ask that all attendees sanitize and/or wash their hands as often as possible.

The Sheraton Hotel’s HVAC system has also been updated with MERV-13 filters, which meet CDC recommendations for air filtration.

Proof of Vaccination & Testing

While COVID-19 continues to be a reality, government agencies have ended support for significant vaccination tracking resources and eliminated same-day PCR testing services.

As a result, Flame Con can no longer require attendees show proof of vaccination or negative COVID-19 PCR test upon entry.

However, we strongly recommend attendees:

  • have received full doses of the first vaccine and received the latest booster
  • test themselves prior to attending, as a precaution
  • stay home if they are feeling sick

Please consider the members of our community and practice harm reduction.
