COVID Disclosure

We are aware of two COVID diagnoses during Shore Leave 42.

  • A vendor took a self-test on Friday evening and upon getting a positive result, voluntarily shut down their table in the vendor room and did not return.
  • In the second case, an attendee’s roommate learned of a positive diagnosis and voluntarily left the hotel.

In both cases, we do not believe there was a significant exposure to the general population.

If you have a positive COVID test within two weeks of Shore Leave 42, please contact us. Your personal information will remain confidential.

We are aware of these additional cases which were diagnosed after Shore Leave had ended:
