ANIME FRONTIER COVID-19 DETAILED HEALTH AND SAFETY POLICIES (UPDATED OCTOBER 18, 2021)

Anime Frontier Powered By Crunchyroll is honored and thrilled to welcome anime fans, guests, and publishers this December.

We’re deeply excited to bring you all together, and we only want to celebrate in a safe and healthy way. To do this, we are following CDC guidelines as well as industry standard guidelines in place at many anime cons, comic cons, and other large events around the US.

These precautions are required for fans, guests, exhibitors, crew, staff, and everyone else who attends Anime Frontier to create a safe experience for all.

Please Note: We are constantly reviewing and reevaluating precautions and protocols as COVID-19 continues to change rapidly. We will post any further updates to this page, and we encourage you to revisit this page prior to traveling to Anime Frontier.

NEGATIVE COVID-19 TEST OR PROOF OF VACCINATION REQUIRED

All Anime Frontier participants who are 12-years-old or older are required to show a negative COVID-19 test result to attend. Attendees who are vaccinated may show proof of COVID-19 vaccination instead of proof of a negative test. Vaccination is not required to attend the event.

Your negative COVID-19 test or proof of vaccination will be checked once upon your first arrival to Anime Frontier, after which you will be given a wristband confirming your negative test or vaccination status has been verified. Keep this wristband on all weekend, and show it at the entrance to our exhibition halls and panel rooms. This wristband must be shown to enter our exhibition halls and panel rooms.

ACCEPTED PROOF OF NEGATIVE COVID TEST

Please show proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of your arrival at Anime Frontier. If attending multiple days, only one test is required taken within 72 hours of your first day of entry.

Test types accepted include…

  • PCR Test
  • Rapid PCR Test
  • Rapid Antigen Test

Tests can be…

  • At a government-run testing facility
  • At a pharmacy like CVS
  • At-home tests from Amazon or other online retailers

When showing a negative test, accepted test results include…

  • A digital photo
  • A printed copy
  • A screenshot of an app

IF SHOWING PROOF OF VACCINATION

If you are instead showing proof of vaccination, you must show proof you have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine authorized by the FDA or WHO.

FACE COVERINGS FOR ALL PARTICIPANTS

Anime Frontier requires face coverings on all participants who are over the age of 5 while in Anime Frontier’s exhibition halls and panel rooms. Please read the CDC’s recommendations on the most effective types of face coverings.

Face coverings must cover both your nose and mouth. A mesh mask is not an acceptable face covering. A face shield is not a substitute for a mask, and can only be used in limited, approved, and appropriate circumstances.

Face coverings can be removed when eating and by panelists while socially distanced on stage, but face coverings must be worn at all other times in Anime Frontier’s exhibition halls and panel rooms.

FACE COVERINGS IN THE CONVENTION CENTER’S PUBLIC AREAS

Please Note: The Fort Worth Convention Center is a public building, and our face covering requirement does not extend into the building’s lobby and common hallways, which are also open to the general public.

We strongly encourage the continued use of face coverings in the convention center’s lobby and common hallways, but Anime Frontier cannot enforce face coverings outside our exhibition halls and panel rooms.

CHILDREN

Attendees under 12-years-old can attend without proof of a negative COVID test. Attendees under 5-years-old can attend without a face covering.

GENERAL WELLNESS

We ask that all attendees self-evaluate prior to coming to Anime Frontier in order to protect others at the event. If you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or have been in close contact with someone who has had COVID-19 in the 14 days prior to the event, please do not enter the convention center. Instead, please reach out to info@animefrontier.com.
