I still wish Otakon was requiring vaccinations this weekend. I live in the DC area and cases have gone up to the point where a new indoor mask mandate was just put in place a couple days ago. People were already going "uhh wtf" with just the convention center re-opening yesterday, let alone a full on convention.

Like, I'm vaccinated and obviously going to wear a mask this weekend, but it would have looked much better on Otakon's part to require the former.

To add on the NYS app, NYC will probably support other forms of proof for vaccination. The Excelsior Pass only applies to NYS residents. There is a NYC Safe app that lets you take a picture of your vaccine card for proof purposes that will also be accepted, and anyone can use that app.

More importantly everything is still in flux, they are going to roll out the policy later in August so it is subject to change.
