COVID Policy

Miryokucon requires every participant, including attendees, guests, and Miryokucon staff, to comply with these Health and Safety Requirements (the “Policy”), including the Health and Safety Acknowledgement below. No one is permitted entry to Miryokucon unless they are in full compliance with the Policy, which includes but is not limited to:

Full Vaccination

All participants are required to show proof of full vaccination with a COVID-19 vaccine authorized for emergency use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or World Health Organization (WHO). “Fully vaccinated” means that the day of your first entry to Miryokucon must be at least 14 days after completion of your primary series of an FDA or WHO-approved or authorized COVID-19 vaccine.

What Does “Fully Vaccinated” Mean?

At this time, “fully vaccinated” means that the day of your first entry to Miryokucon must be at least 14 days after completion of your primary series of an FDA or WHO-approved or authorized COVID-19 vaccine, such as:

  • second dose of a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna), or
  • single dose of a single-dose COVID-19 vaccine (Johnson & Johnson’s Jansen vaccine)

In accordance with CDC guidelines, booster shots are not required to be considered fully vaccinated, however, please note that the CDC recommends that people remain up to date with their vaccines, which includes additional doses for individuals who are immunocompromised or booster doses at regular time points. Please note that this remains subject to further update as CDC guidance is revised.

Appropriate Face Covering

All participants are strongly encouraged to wear an appropriate face covering at all times in any Miryokucon public space. Individual panelists may, at their discretion, require such covering by audience members while their panel is in progress.
