Tavern Closed for Pneumonia


  1. I see we've gone the right of Dire ConCrud

  2. Take care and get better, Erik.

  3. Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

  4. I’ve heard rumors that Garycon might be canceled this year.

    1. So far, that's just just a rumor.

      From what Luke has said, GaryCon won't be cancelled unless the Feds, State, County, or Grand Geneva require it to be cancelled (i.e., no gatherings over 1,000 people, that kind of thing).

    2. The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) recommends that all non-essential gatherings of 250 or more people be cancelled or postponed statewide to help protect Wisconsinites from the spread of COVID-19, particularly those who are most vulnerable to infection and severe disease. DHS supports the decisions of any event organizers that elect to cancel or postpone events with less than 250 attendees in order to protect their communities. Organizers should consider the following:​
      Potential for attendance from older adults, individuals with underlying health care conditions, or other vulnerable groups
      Potential for attendance from individuals from a wide range of geographic areas across Wisconsin, the United States, or other countries
      The setting of the event, particularly if it involves sustained interaction between attendees in close physical proximity
      By implementing limitations on mass gatherings DHS is intending to slow the spread of this epidemic to a level such that the healthcare system is able to maintain quality care for patients. Mass gatherings during an outbreak of a particularly infectious disease such as COVID-19 have the potential to result in large numbers of ill people that can quickly overwhelm local hospitals and clinics. ​

      At this point, it’s irresponsible and arrogant to ignore the CDC and your government and to think that your event with more than 250 attendees is immune to the Coronavirus. We all love playing at GaryCon but don’t let the greed cloud your judgement. It will do more harm than good in the near future.

  5. May Christ send his healing hand upon you and the hands and minds of those who are caring for you. Praying for a speedy recovery.
