Emerald City Comic Con organizers mentioned that there will be enhanced cleaning and sanitation across the show as they are working closely with the ESCC and other venue partners to align with local, state, and federal public health guidelines.

“As ECCC approaches we will be constantly reviewing our health protection activities, public health messaging, hygiene and medical control measures with the aim of strengthening our COVID-19 response further in line with up to date public health advice and guidance, including that of the CDC,” organizers say.
