Costume College 2022 Health and Safety Requirements

CGW and the Costume College Committee are committed to providing a safe environment for all of our teachers, students, vendors, and committee members. Therefore, we have put in place policies to help keep our community safe.

All Costume College 2022 attendees are expected to follow the policies below:

  • Properly fitting face masks (no bandanas or face shields, please) must be worn in all classrooms, tour buses, Marketplace, and Bargain Basement. The CDC recommends wearing surgical masks or higher-level respirators (e.g., N95s, KN95s, KF94s) with good fit.
  • Proof of vaccination(s) (series completed by Thursday, July 14th, 2022) or recent negative PCR COVID test (within 72 hours) will be required at event check-in. Antigen or other rapid tests will not be accepted.
  • Saturday Gala and Sunday Tea ticket holders - Proof of vaccination(s) (series completed by Thursday, July 14th, 2022) or recent negative PCR COVID test (within 72 hours) will be required per CGW policy at the door for the Saturday Gala and the Sunday Tea. This is due to that large number of people eating in an enclosed space at these events. Antigen or other rapid tests will not be accepted.
  • In spaces where a face mask is required - If you are asked by anyone (including, but not limited to, hotel staff, fellow teachers, attendees, Costume College Committee Members, or other hotel guests), to adjust your mask or put your mask on, please comply immediately. Failure to do so is considered harassment, and will not be tolerated.
  • In spaces where the wearing of a mask is optional (Costume Exhibit room, Lounge, Hotel hallways, lobby and restaurant) please treat others with consideration and respect as everyone navigates their own masking preferences.
  • Yelling, berating, and/or verbal abuse of any kind is considered harassment, and will not be tolerated.

If any participant at Costume College 2022, including all teachers, students, vendors, and volunteers who violates any of these health policies, will be asked to leave the event (including the Gala and the Tea) and will not be refunded for the event cost.
