Vaccination Policy
The safety and security of our attendees, vendors, teachers, staff, and volunteers are our most important priorities. We will require COVID-19 vaccinations to attend the New York show. In order to receive a badge, everyone will be required to upload a jpg, png, or pdf of your vaccination card showing proof of full COVID vaccination obtained at least two weeks before the event. Vaccination cards will be reviewed and approved. For those who have medical conditions and are unable to get vaccinated, a doctor’s note is required, a negative COVID test taken within 72 hours of each day you attend, and mask to be worn at all times. 
  
Masking
Based on current guidelines from New York City, Knitting LIVE! we will not require masking, but we recommend masks in crowded areas. Some classes or lectures will require masking based on teacher preferences, and this is noted in the class description if required, so you will know before you purchase the class if you will need to wear a mask. Complimentary masks will be available as well as hand sanitizer stations on site, and our cleaning crews will do frequent cleanings in high-touch areas.  

This is our COVID policy as of now; it will be updated based on any masking or vaccine requirement changes from city, state, or federal authorities. We will follow all masking requirements based on community transmission, which you can track here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/your-health/covid-by-county.html?CDC_AA_refVal
