San Diego, California – Comic-Con is requiring all attendees to wear a face mask and produce a Covid ‘Health Pass’ in order to enter regardless of vaccination status.
“You’ll need to use Health Pass to confirm health & safety requirements before entering the event.” Comic-Con said.
“Face coverings should completely cover the nose and mouth, fit snugly against the sides of the face, and not have any gaps.” – Comic-Con said.
Attendees who do not comply with the mask and Covid health pass requirements will be removed by security.
“This policy is in place to ensure the health and safety of all fans,” Comic-Con said in the text. “Security will be on-site to support adherence to the policy.”

Attendees must provide proof that they are fully vaxxed (two Covid shots) or show proof of negative Covid test results taken with 72 hours of entry.
The organizers of this week’s San Diego Comic-Con are requiring “all attendee groups, including but not limited to exhibitors, guests, staff, press, professionals, volunteers, and cosplayers…to wear an approved face covering regardless of vaccination status.”
As part of that, attendees must download a “Health Pass” that will be used to quickly verify testing and/or vaccination status. All those who so verify will be given a wristband which will allow entry to the Convention Center.
There are to be three wristbanding stations on site and three more scattered throughout Downtown San Diego. The information available does not indicate if testing will be provided anywhere on site, but negative rapid antigen test results are acceptable for Health Pass verification, in addition to the more-reliable PCR tests.
