DisCon III has sent out an updated tracking email for positive COVID-19 attendees, as well as tips for fellow attendees, including suggestions to test five to seven days after the convention, and to wear a mask indoors in public for two weeks, or until testing negative.
There are now five people who have reported positive test results. The first was reported on Friday, and was a “false positive.” The next was reported on Sunday. There have been three more reported since the convention ended, one reporting a positive case on Monday, and the next two on Tuesday.
DisCon III is asking that anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 reach out via email, and keep track of their schedule during the convention, so those in close contact can be alerted to possible infection. For more information, as well as any questions or concerns, people are encouraged to email DisCon III.
