Special Statement on COVID-19 and rising case counts in Dallas County.

Updated August 20th, 2021

Texas Furry Siesta has elected to implement a comprehensive list of policies to ensure attendee health and safety during this unusual period. 

  • Attendance by the Unvaccinated – To remain in compliance with the law in the State of Texas, we will not be requiring proof of vaccination.
    • If you are unvaccinated or do not wish to show proof of vaccination, you must show a proof of a negative COVID test administered on or after Wednesday the 25th of August 2021.
    • Alternatively, you may show your proof of vaccination, and no COVID test is required. 
    • If you have not been vaccinated, or do not wish to get a COVID test, we will be glad to transfer your membership or issue you a voucher for use at a future Texas Furry Siesta.
    • Children 12 years old and under are exempt from this policy.
  • Other Policies  –
    • Mandatory Masking – While in hotel spaces rented by Texas Furry Siesta, you must wear a mask. Willful failure to do so will result in removal from the event, and penalties up to and including a ban from future Creature Arts events. If you are unable to comply with this policy, we will be glad to transfer your membership or issue you a voucher for use at a future Texas Furry Siesta.

    • Attendees with COVID-19 Symptoms – If you come down with symptoms of COVID-19 or any other illness please stay home, there will be another convention for you to attend in the future, we will be glad to transfer your membership or issue you a voucher for use at a future Texas Furry Siesta.
    • Temperature Checks – Temperature checks will be performed on the entry to the main convention floor, and selected function space.

The executive leadership of Texas Furry Siesta takes COVID-19 very seriously, and are doing everything within our power to protect the community and still hold an event.

As this is an ever evolving situation we will be working with our executive team to develop and maintain our Covid-19 policies and will be updating them on our normal channels and social media.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

Any; however, lab testing is preferred. If you do a home/rapid test, you must take a photo of the results of the test with your Photo ID in the frame of the image.

Do I need my physical vaccine card on site?

No – an image or photocopy is fine, so long as the name and other information matches your photo ID, it’s acceptable.

Which vaccines are acceptable?

Any vaccine approved for use in the United States, Canada, or the European Union is acceptable.

I’ve only had one of the two shots for a two-shot vaccine, does that count?

No, you’ll need to get a test.

How can I get tested in time?

Results with a date stamp from any testing site is acceptable, as are the rapid tests you can purchase at most drug stores.
