Good evening Outlands!
As explained in the video announcement (YoutTube link), the Outlands, in consultation with the Kingdom seneschal will adopt the society boards covid vaccine policy effective October 1st, 2021. While the timing is unfortunate (with Crown Tournament happening this weekend) We believe that this is the best path forward for the Outlands, to keep everyone as safe as possible while we continue to battle this horrific pandemic.
To further keep everyone safe We are also requiring mask indoors starting October 1st, 2021. Many counties are already requiring them for indoor activity and We feel compelled to follow the science and also require them. Activity is defined as any official SCA activity (practices, business meetings, A&S gatherings, etc) We took an oath to protect and defend the Outlands at our coronation and We are going to continue to let science not feelings guide these decisions.
We are excited to celebrate the next chapter of Outlands history this weekend. Please travel safely so We can celebrate with you!
We remain yours in service,
Béla and Nerissa
King and Queen of the Outlands
