Reports of positive COVID-19 tests from attendees are being received EVE Online‘s Fanfest. Fans have shared and confirmed their positive tests, letting other participants know they may have been exposed.

Those scheduled to fly home to some countries like the US and Canada will have to show negative tests before they’re allowed to do so, leaving some stuck in Iceland to be isolated until they can.

With COVID-19, there is of course a risk involved in attending public events, especially indoors. However, with most countries lifting most public restrictions and requirements such as masking or proof of vaccination, major events are returning around the world this year. While the “con flu” is familiar to many, it is not usually part of an ongoing pandemic.

CCP announced months ago that Fanfest would once again become an in-person event in Reykjavik, and originally had stricter safety guidelines before withdrawing them when Iceland lifted such requirements. When the event took place, there was hand sanitizer and advice to take care of personal space. Of course, those who chose to participate and reunite with them EVE The community knew the risk.

This isn’t the only major event related to on-site gaming that has resulted in COVID cases in recent times. Recently, a PAX East Enforcer contracted the virus at the event and later died. Some cases also spread at events like the GDC. However, major events continue to take place, and in the case of fan fests EVE Online Community members help each other.

This extends not only to announcing that they have tested positive and doing a little contact tracing, but those affected are doing what they can to help others by pointing out where to get cheap, reliable tests, until they figure out how to stay indoors Iceland just a little bit longer than expected. More tests continue to be positive and CCP has been addressing the outbreak EVE Discord, which also points out resources for things like free trials. Gamers also use Discord for their endeavors.

Even some CCP developers themselves have joined the participants who tested positive.
