The Coronavirus (COVID-19) is at the forefront of everyone’s minds, and we at WFC 2020 are no different. As of now, we are moving ahead with plans to host the 2020 World Fantasy Convention in Salt Lake City, Utah. We are monitoring the situation on a daily—often hourly—basis. We’re in communication with our venue, The Little America Hotel, and are satisfied with their aggressive efforts to ensure that the facility is sanitary and virus-free. They have adopted the CDC’s recommendations in the usage of instant kill cleansers and sanitizers in all areas of the hotel and continue to be proactive in their approach to provide a safe environment for all their guests.
We are doing the same. WFC 2020 is still seven months away. Every day brings new developments and, we sincerely hope, progress toward controlling and conquering the virus. We have every hope that the current crisis will be over long before 29 October. Besides our own continuing discussions and plans, we’re monitoring the efforts of other conferences and similar gatherings, and will adapt all measures that make sense to keep our membership safe. We know this is a difficult time, and everyone’s plans are in a state of flux. Be assured we have no plans to raise membership rates during this worldwide emergency.
We’ll keep you posted with updates as we make them. In the meantime, we hope to see you in Salt Lake City!
Ginny and Dee Ann
