COVID-19 Safety Policy

Furry Weekend Atlanta 2022

Updated Friday, April 29th, 2022

Our leadership team wants to remind our attendees, staff and volunteers that safety is always our highest priority. The health and safety of our FWAmily is always the first consideration in our decision-making process.

Furry Weekend Atlanta 2022 will comply with all safety guidelines and best practices set by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the State of Georgia Department of Public Health and the City of Atlanta at the time of the event.


Furry Weekend Atlanta will require all attendees, staff members, volunteers, parents, talent and anyone else attending the event in person to be fully vaccinated against CoVID-19.  Showing proof of CoVID-19 vaccination will be required for access to the convention space.

The CDC defines fully vaccinated as having received 2 doses of an approved mRNA vaccine (Pfizer / Moderna) or a single dose of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine.  To attend FWA 2022 you must have received your final CoVID-19 vaccine dose no later than Thursday, April 21st, 2022.

Boosters are strongly encouraged but are not required to attend FWA 2022.

Furry Weekend Atlanta will accept any of the following as proof of vaccination so long as it reflects your full name, type of vaccine administered and date (s) of vaccine administration:

  • Original paper CDC vaccine card
  • Photocopy of original CDC vaccine card
  • Digital photograph or scan of original CDC vaccine card
  • EU Digital CoVID 19 Certificate with “2G” guidelines1
  • Printed or digital vaccine record from a healthcare provider, government public health agency or appropriate Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) authorized to administer vaccinations
  • Digital “vaccine passport” product; commercial or governmentally sponsored

1Vaccine brand and dates not required for the EU Digital Certificate as this is verified automatically by the certificate authority.


Staff and registered attendees of Furry Weekend Atlanta will be asked to wear face coverings while in all exclusive convention spaces.  Exclusive convention spaces are those where one must scan an FWA wristband for entry.


All attendees, staff members, volunteers, parents and anyone else attending the event in person will be required to adhere to the CoVID-19 health and safety policies in place at the time of the event. Your wristband is the verification of your vaccination status. Any guest without a wristband will be asked to leave the event space. Failure to comply with these policies will result in the cancellation of Furry Weekend Atlanta 2022 registration without refund and loss of access to all event spaces.
