Northshield Events Procedure - April 2022

Northshield Events Procedure – April 2022

Below spells out the requirements for in-person events going forward from April 1st date:

All attendees in North America must follow all national, province, territory, state, and local health guidelines at SCA events. In addition, at all North American SCA events:
a) Kingdoms may continue to require the use of masks at their events as they deem necessary;
b) As research has shown that minimal transmission occurs from food, the serving of feasts, inns, day boards, and buffet-style food is now allowed at the Kingdom’s discretion;
c) Large coolers to dispense water into individual personal containers are now permitted;
d) The following language is required to appear on all event notices, flyers, online announcements, and advertisements, as well as being posted in multiple locations (including gate) at any and all SCA-sponsored functions going forward:

Although the SCA complies with all applicable laws to ensure the health and safety of our event participants, we cannot eliminate the risk of exposure to infectious diseases during in-person events. By participating in the in-person events of the SCA, you acknowledge and accept the potential risks. You agree to take any additional steps to protect your own health and safety and those under your control as you believe to be necessary.

As has been stated all along, any and all state, provincial, or local health regulations and guidelines will of course need to be followed, including keeping up with changes to government policy based on updated information. Be aware that some local jurisdictions have stricter requirements than their state/province. We also strongly recommend following the safety guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Public Health Agency of Canada.

Additional Requirements for Northshield in-person activities (after April 1, 2022):

Masks are required for all activities for those who are not fully vaccinated (vaccination + 2 weeks) over the age of 5. Anyone who is fully vaccinated and still wishes to wear a mask is encouraged to do so. Masks are not required for indoor or outdoor activities for people who are fully vaccinated after April 1.

CDC compliant masks must be worn per CDC guidance on how to properly wear a mask for those that are not fully vaccinated.

Personal responsibility of activity attendees: Do not attend an in-person activity if you are experiencing any of the symptoms of COVID-19 (

A statement of concern for our Populace:

If you have an underlying condition which increases your risk, strongly consider your own health and safety before attending an in-person activity (
