MAGFest 2022 Discloses Dozens Of COVID-19 Exposures

2022 may not be a good time to host a public event, no matter how awesome it is.

Recently, MAGFest organizers announced that several dozen attendees for MAGFest 2022 in National Harbor, Maryland in USA, have tested positive for COVID-19/coronavirus. The official website has listed 75 different exposed events and locations. This includes a party room that had a “Cum Over” sign on the windows. Yes, really.

That’s a lot of rooms and places, so it’s no surprise that a majority of event-goers may have traces of COVID-19 latched onto them. So far, 59 out of the 10,581 attendees have tested positive for COVID-19. 25 of them were vaccine boosted while 34 of them weren’t. All attendees are encouraged to submit a self-report form for positive test results.

Of course, this isn’t going to deter other gaming festivals from happening. These include DICE Summit, Game Developers Conference, Gamescom, and PAX East. The full list of COVID-19-exposed MAGFest 2022 venues and rooms are below:
