Quoted from Zee:
For CAX they will also accept recent negative covid tests in lieu of a vax record. Has to be within 72 hours of the event day. This hassle will keep a lot of people away.
The masking requirement will keep a lot of people away as well. Who wants to spend all day trying to play games with a mask on?
Its not meant as a hassle, its a requirement to put on the show in santa clara county.
If its too much of a hassle for you, then dont go. No one will miss you.. I don't see how a mask will effect your ability to play a game. I could see if your playing ddr or propcycle, then you might have a point.
