DSSG - We will have a vaccine requirement this fall

Post by Bsimon » Sat Aug 14, 2021 12:22 pm

Like other upcoming star parties, the Deep South Star Gaze will be mandating proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test dated within 3 days of arrival for all attendees this fall. As like everyone else we had hoped that what measures we have been taking the past 20 months would have resulted in good control of COVID-19 by now. Unfortunately we are not there yet. Luckily we did not have to cancel any of the 3 events that were on our calendar since the pandemic started - our 2020 Spring Scrimmage in May, 2020, our 2020 38th Annual Deep South Star Gaze in November of 2020, and our 2021 Spring Scrimmage in May of 2021.

With our upcoming 39th Annual Deep South Star Gaze scheduled from November 2nd to November 7th and with the 4th surge of the pandemic going on at this time and in addition a variety of vaccine mandates being put into place by cities, states, businesses and star parties, we felt it best to do the same.

In addition one of the owners of our venue is going thru cancer therapy and he is on a transplant list. He is immunocompromised and we want to go the extra step in protecting him as well as ourselves.

Enough said, we will have a COVID 19 vaccine mandate (or proof of a negative COVID 19 test within 3 days of arrival) in place for this fall, no exceptions other than for children who do not meet the age requirement to have a vaccine.
