Crunchyroll Expo is working closely with the San Jose McEnery Convention Center to create the safest experience possible for all attendees, exhibitors, and guests. The following policies will be updated as new guidance becomes available.
All attendees, exhibitors, guests, staff, crew, and all others 12-years-old and older entering the San Jose McEnery Convention Center must show proof of full vaccination – including a booster shot.
Your proof of full vaccination must show that you have received at least two doses of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines or one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, as well as a booster shot. Full vaccination from any other vaccine approved by the CDC or WHO is also acceptable. Your final dose of the vaccine must have been administered at least 14 days prior to the event.
The City of San Jose regularly updates its Vaccination Requirement for Events regarding all large indoor events at City-owned facilities. Crunchyroll Expo uses the City of San Jose’s requirements as a guide, but with the safety of our guests, fans, and exhibitors in mind, we may choose to be more strict.
Proof of vaccination accepted includes:
A personal digital COVID-19 vaccine record with a QR code that scans to display name, date of birth, vaccine dates and vaccine type.
Attendees 18-and-older must additionally provide proof of identification (driver’s license or similar photo ID) for entry.
Your proof of vaccination will be checked once upon your first arrival to Crunchyroll Expo, after which you will be given a wristband confirming your vaccination status has been verified. Keep this wristband on all weekend, and show it at the entrance during any additional arrivals to bypass the vaccination check.
Attendees between ages 5 and 11-years-old must show proof of their initial two vaccination shots. A booster shot is not required.
All attendees, exhibitors, guests, staff, crew, and all others 2-years-old or older entering the San Jose McEnery Convention Center must wear masks, and please see the California Department of Public Health’s recommendations for preferred face coverings.
All face coverings must properly cover your nose and mouth. A mesh mask is not an acceptable face covering. A face shield is not an acceptable substitute for a mask.
Face coverings can be removed when eating or drinking and by panelists while socially distanced on stage, but face coverings must be worn at all other times at Crunchyroll Expo – including when taking part in any cosplay or celebrity photographs.
Cosplay masks and helmets are permitted but approved face coverings MUST be worn under the cosplay. Upon entry to the building, you may be required to remove your cosplay mask for security and show your approved face covering.
Should our vaccination and mask policy not be a match for you this year, we encourage you to enjoy Crunchyroll Expo online at home, where we’ll be sharing exciting panels, entertainment, and features of Crunchyroll Expo virtually. We unfortunately cannot allow anyone 5-years-old or older into the San Jose McEnery Convention Center without vaccinations or face coverings. Crunchyroll Expo is a large gathering, and vaccinations and face coverings are required for the health and safety of all participants.
We ask that all attendees self-evaluate prior to coming to Crunchyroll Expo 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
These policies are as of January 31, 2022, and they will be updated as new guidance becomes available. As COVID-19 news changes rapidly, we recommend you subscribe to our newsletter and follow us on social media (Facebook / Instagram / Twitter) to be the first to receive new information.
If you have any questions, please reach out to us at email@example.com.
