COVID-19 Vaccination and Mask Policies

Vaccination Requirement:

At all Fandom Charities events, the health and safety of our stakeholders are our main priorities, and because of this we have implemented new policies and protocols based on state and local health guidelines.  We will continue to closely monitor health recommendations as we prepare for The Hellmouth Convention at the Hilton Los Angeles Airport, and will continue to update these guidelines as they are available, so be sure to check this page often for the most up-to-date protocols.

In addition to following current healthcare and governmental guidelines, everyone attending The Hellmouth Convention will be required to wear an approved face covering regardless of vaccination status. Face coverings should completely cover the nose and mouth, fit snugly against the sides of the face, and not have any gaps.

In addition to wearing an approved face covering, you will be required to provide verification of full COVID-19 vaccination status or proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours. Fandom Charities reserves the right to modify requirements or limits for attending or participating in activities.

Please note: these policies apply to all attendee groups, including but not limited to exhibitors, guests, press, professionals, and cosplayers.

Please be aware that adjustments may need to be made to policies and guidelines during the event in order to ensure the health and safety of all attendee groups, so we ask that everyone please follow the directions on informational signage and from all staff.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is another great resource and we encourage you to visit this site often for up-to-date information on preventative measures.

We are excited to gather again after such a long time apart. But we want to be sure everyone who attends is as safe as possible.  We will continue to update our website as new information becomes available.

We look forward to seeing you at The Hellmouth Convention in June.


Face Masks Requirements:

Face masks will be required at all times with the exception of removing them to eat or drink in designated areas. Cosplayers will be required to adhere to this standard also.  Removal of masks during the convention except in designated areas will be grounds for expulsion from the event with no refunds.

All face coverings must fit properly and snugly, must secure under your chin, and fully cover your nose and mouth.  Approved face coverings must be visible at all times and may not be concealed under costume headwear/masks.

Not permitted are:

  • Face coverings that are not able to be secured under your chin, including bandanas or scarves.
  • Neck gaiters
  • Mesh face coverings
  • Face coverings that have exhalation valves
  • Damaged/torn face coverings
  • A face shield by itself

No Refunds Policy:

We will not issue refunds for anyone who refuses to abide by the COVID-19 policy.
