    Following CONQuest Festival last weekend, several attendees have shared online that they have gotten positive COVID-19 test results.

    Specifically, there have been a number of event attendees online that have shared through social media platforms about having flu-like symptoms or positive COVID antigen rapid test results. The attendees range from con-goers to guests and cosplayers, and they shared their posts over the past couple of days following the event.

    Based on the posts from event attendees, even some who kept their masks on for most of the time and exercised caution got positive test results.

    In response to these positive results, other attendees have also begun advocating for people to get tested. From the looks of it, there area a lot of people who have tested negative on the antigen rapid test. But we’ll have to wait and see in the coming days.

    If you’ve attended the event, here are some guidelines that you can follow (especially if you have flu-like symptoms) as shared by CONQuest Festival organizers:

    Even with the mask mandate and full vaccination requirement of CONQuest Festival, the fact that there was a notable number of positive COVID cases means there is still some risk involved when attending events. This is possibly due to the new, more infectious Omicron subvariants that have been detected earlier this month.

    Given this, it’s fair to say that attendees for events and other mass gatherings must exercise caution, especially for those who are immunocompromised or come in close contact with immunocompromised individuals.
