Causeacon CONVID-19 Update

(March 23rd, 2020)
Hello Causeacon fans! Here is an update on everything happening with Causeacon amidst the CONVID-19 outbreak in the United States.

Gov. Jim Justice has just announced a “stay at home” policy for West Virginia, encouraging each and every one of us to not only practice health safety by washing our hands, but to keep a distance from each others as to decrease the spread of the virus through out our state.

The Beckley-Raleigh County Convention Center has also closed it’s doors and hope to reopen on April 15th, 2020.

We continue to closely monitor the situation from our end and safety is a concern for all of our staff. At this time we continue to have meetings with our staff and WRC about next steps for Causeacon. We can tell you that we have back-up dates for June 2020 in the event that we have to postpone the convention.

Please keep in mind that no one knows the extent of how long this virus will threaten our way of living and when all of this will come to an end. What we can do is continue to practice safe health standards and continue our social distancing to keep the virus spread under control.

In the mean time, we are starting the process of planning some more virtual events for our fans including our Facebook Live Nerd Trivia Night this Sunday. If you have any questions regarding Causeacon or our upcoming events, please don’t hesitate to send us a message on Facebook or through our website.

Stay safe everyone!

Hello everyone! Causeacon wanted to address some issues and concerns about the COVID-19 virus that has been affecting our nation.
 
At this time we have not made any decisions to postpone or cancel Causeacon scheduled for April 24-26th, 2020. We are closely monitoring the situation at this time and the safety of our staff and attendees is most important to us. So for now, we are continuing as scheduled.
 
A lot can happen in 6 weeks and we are hopeful the situation will progressively get better form here on out. In the event that it doesn’t, we are prepared to push Causeacon down the calendar a few months.
 
We’re taking it day-by-day and if anything changes we will make an announcement. In the meantime, we hope that you all stay safe and keep practicing the CDC recommendations for keeping clean and washing your hands regularly.
 
If you are experiencing any contagious symptoms (coronavirus-like or otherwise), exercise caution by staying at home. This also serves to protect others who could be infected by your attendance at the event.
