  1. Never rely upon a single person for anything. You should look at many opinions & make an educated decision. No one person is 100% correct or an expert on everything. Where this has been on-going, this along with many other doctors, have been in one stance & then change as information is made available. I place higher value upon doctors that are not part of government, that have a reason to state a position as a term of their employment & not only as a term of their oath to patients. As to sourcing: depending upon what you consider reliable, which would be based upon personal pol
  2. There is one piece of information that they are not discussing in regards to vaccinations: Are these vaccinations going to be an annual thing similar to seasonal flu? I suspect you will not be seeing international guests for 2 or more years as wise people will not leave their home country in an unknown environment - especially if they have any type of chronic medical issue. I would even move a step stronger - I would imagine you may see regulations denying admittance for those with medical conditions to conventions - restrictions in place from the government - due to their suscepitibility &
  3. But the intent of the post is not moot - this is not in regards to a 2020 convention, but to the potential permanent changes coming to the industry & what we may face from it going forward. This is a societal change coming to the entire industry & will impact conventions like Otakon & AB significantly. Especially if they all adopt un-occupancy safety rules or elevator rules.
  4. Something for community consideration as society around the world finds its new normals: https://www.foxnews.com/travel/how-hotels-change-post-coronavirus Better pray that 1 per elevator use policy doesn't become practiced...
  5. That's the problem with contracts - until someone else changes the conditions on the ground, you are still bound, no matter the situation. We have to wait on how DC rolls the viability of the venue before otacorp will make a statement.
  6. If news reports are accurate, there are two major strains - one in europe & 1 in asia. The US has both at the same time. So, 1) a vaccine will likely only cover 1 strain making groups of people still suceptible to the other 2) expectations on leisure international travel should be nil for 1-2 years minimum after something like this with an expectation of a decade recovery for tourism 3) i enjoy conventions as many of us do - I do not expect them to be licensed for at least a year & even then, expect them to be capped significantly by size & with significant mandatory medical regula
  7. If they are like many other conventions under contract/obligations, if they make any mention of not holding the event, it opens them up to obligations directly payable for the event. They are likely awaiting judgement from an authority involved in the venue that voids their obligations outside of their control, thus allowing them to speak more about not holding a convention. Like nearly all things - it's always about the money in the end.
  8. The Acela nonstop service will be temporarily suspended starting Tuesday, March 10 until Tuesday, May 26. https://www.cnbc.com/2020/03/07/amtrak-cancels-nonstop-acela-service-between-dc-nyc-due-to-coronavirus.html Keep an eye out as this is on top of airlines taking steps internationally. This is the first domestic service I am aware of that is ceasing public transportation. Let us hope it doesn't become a domino effect, especially as the need to look out for the public welfare begins to combine with legal liability & the over protective nature of our litigious society comes fort
  9. You don't need to worry about this for the 09 con since it seems to be occuring during the All Star Break and then they resume in Chicago. So you will have to wait a year for the lights and action to be discovered.
  10. Just wondering if it is gonna happen? Seems to always be popular
