Information and Policies


After taking into careful consideration all the feedback we received from our attendees regarding potential mask requirements, the following policy is in place for the 2022 Anthro Weekend Utah Convention. The final policy is as follows:

  • In order to accommodate individuals unwilling to comply with the policies outlined on this document, the AWU 2022 refund deadline has been extended to Wednesday, June 15, 2022. Individuals requesting refunds may reach out to us at registration@anthroweekendutah.org. Alternatively, a registration may also be rolled over to 2023.

Our full COVID policy is as follows:

  • A negative COVID test within 72 hours of the event, OR proof of vaccination is still required in order to attend. Rapid tests are permitted, but must be administered by a medical professional. Self-administered COVID tests are not permitted.
  • Children age 5+ are eligible to receive COVID-19 vaccinations and will therefore be required to show proof of vaccination or a negative test.
  • All convention members must sign a Covid Release Form. Links to this form are provided on the registration form to allow for electronic submission and faster check-in. The form can also be completed in-person at convention check-in.
  • You must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, and present genuine, government-issued proof of said vaccination, OR provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of the event, at registration check-in.
    • “Fully vaccinated” means you have received both doses of a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, or have received a one-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine. Regardless of vaccine type, the complete dose of your vaccine must be received by July 1, 2022, two weeks prior to the start of the convention.
    • A booster is not required to be considered “fully vaccinated.”
    • Any home-based COVID-19 test kit results will not be accepted.
  • Masks must be worn while in convention space.
    • Woven, knitted, mesh, or other masks which do not provide a substantial barrier are not permitted.
  • If you feel ill, do not attend, or return home (as applicable).
  • If you begin experiencing COVID symptoms during or after the convention, we urge you to take advantage of free testing and to inform others of any positive test results so we can all work to stay safe. Above all else, the number one thing we can all do to be safe is get vaccinated; vaccines work! We thank you for your cooperation in navigating this pandemic, and look forward to a wonderful weekend together.
