**Effective Date: June 9, 2022
We have reinstated our previous COVID-19 policy requiring both proof of vaccination (or negative test) and face coverings for entry.
SPJA will be requiring all attendees of AX 2022 to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination or proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours prior to attending the event.
All attendees of AX 2022 will be required to wear face coverings, regardless of vaccination status, at all times unless in outdoor areas or actively drinking or eating. Face coverings must fit snugly and properly, fully covering your nose and mouth, and secure under your chin.
Please note that these requirements and guidelines apply to all attendee groups, including but not limited to, exhibitors, artists, vendors, guests, staff, press, industry, volunteers, and cosplayers.
These requirements and guidelines are final.
**Effective Date: June 21, 2022
All attendee groups must go to our COVID-19 Verification Area located at Chick Hearn Court with proof of COVID-19 vaccination or negative COVID-19 test, along with a valid government-issued ID matching the documentation, to obtain a COVID-19 Verification Wristband. Please wear this wristband for the duration of your attendance at Anime Expo. Failure to do so will subject you to be re-verified at Chick Hearn Court.
At this time, “fully vaccinated” means that the day of your entry to Anime Expo must be at least 14 days after completion of your primary series of an FDA or WHO approved or authorized COVID-19 vaccine, such as but not limited to:
- second dose of a two dose COVID-19 vaccine (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna), or
- single dose of a single dose COVID-19 vaccine (Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine)
For more information, please see the CDC Guidelines.
For any attendee that is not fully vaccinated, proof of a negative COVID-19 test (PCR or antigen) taken within 72 hours prior to attending the event must be provided, along with a valid government-issued ID matching the documentation.
