Current Rules for Calontir Event Attendance (as of February 2022)

• These rules apply to both events and local meetings, practices, and gatherings.

• These rules are in addition to, not in place of, the Society level rules from the BoD.

• These rules are the MINIMUM requirements, and local group leadership may enact more stringent requirements if the local health conditions warrant.

• All Local, State, and Federal Guidelines are to be followed, including masking and gathering size limits.

• All attendees to any event, meeting, or practice, must be signed in on a roster including current accurate contact information.

• Everyone 24 months of age and older must mask indoors, regardless of vaccination status. N95, KN95, or KF94 masks are to be worn indoors, for all activities including fighting, both armored and steel.

 If you cannot fit an N95/KN95/KF94 mask in your helm/mask while fighting, you may wear a multilayer non-woven surgical mask while fighting, but you are expected to wear an N95/KN95/KF94 mask while not fighting.

• If you are fully vaccinated and it has been long enough that the vaccine will have reached maximum efficacy, you may choose not to wear a mask while outdoors in an open area. 

• If you are under a shelter, or shade fly, a mask must be worn. 

• Masks must be worn covering the nose and mouth.

• You may bring your own food to an event and you may share it with others.

• Food may be served in an official capacity, such as an inn or vigil table, with the following requirements: Anyone making or handling food must be masked and gloved. Anyone serving food must be masked. Anyone in the preparation or serving areas but not actually handling food must be masked.

• If you would usually be required to be masked, you must distance a minimum of 6 feet to unmask for eating or drinking.  Vaccinated members of the populace may be closer than 6 feet outdoors, but must still distance to eat or drink indoors.  Unvaccinated members of the populace must distance at least 6 feet to eat or drink both indoors and out.

• Feasts will not be allowed at this time.

• Water Bearing may be provided from the communal coolers, but only into personal containers, not our traditional shared jugs.

Requests from the Crown

• If you are medically able to get the Covid Vaccine, please do so. If you are due for a booster, please get one.

• Please do not attend gatherings if you are not feeling well. If someone in your household is Covid positive, or symptomatic, please stay home. 

• Please respect the comfort levels of those who wish to follow more stringent masking and distancing practices than are strictly required

• The SCA is an organization of chivalry and community. Please remember these values and help us all set a good example for the rest of the Known World.

In all things kindness,  peace and love.
