Pop culture fans rejoice – after two years away, LA Comic Con will return with an in-person convention this year!
To keep attendees, guests, and workers safe, the Con will employ a number of new health and safety measures. Based on Los Angeles Department of Public Health guidelines, everyone in attendance will be required to show proof of vaccination.
See the full list of health and safety modifications for this year’s event below:
- Three entrances (one in the South Hall and two in the West Hall). Entrances will employ over 20 magnetometers to spread out and speed up COVID-19 and safety checks.
- Two checkpoints: a COVID vaccination/negative test verification station and then security. Free PCR tests (results available in 15 minutes) will be available for those lacking vaccine verification.
- All convention goers will be required to wear face coverings while attending the event.
- Cleaning standards from LA County and the CDC followed before, in between, and after all sessions.
- Extra space. With well over 1.2 million-square feet of exhibition space (double the space from 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 back to the LA Convention Center with more space and content than ever,” said Chris DeMoulin, CEO of Comikaze Entertainment, LA Comic Con’s parent company. “We’re excited to see everyone in person and given all we’ve been through the past 18 months we want to ensure that fans, staff, and our celebrity guests feel comfortable and welcome as we embrace the latest public health policies and guidelines to keep everyone safe.”
Although a number of safety measures have been put in place, LA Comic Con recognizes not all fans will be comfortable attending live events in person. So this year’s event will also offer virtual streaming experiences and online shopping for those unable to attend in person.
LA Comic Con runs from December 3 – 5. You can still grab tickets here.
