Safety FAQs


Although the SCA complies with all applicable laws to try to ensure the health and safety of our event participants, we cannot eliminate the risk of exposure to infectious diseases during in-person events. By participating in the in-person events of the SCA, you acknowledge and accept the potential risks. You agree to take any additional steps to protect your own health and safety and those under your control as you believe to be necessary.

Are vaccinations required to attend this event?

No.  According to SCA “Memorandum – Statement Regarding Proof of Vaccinations, Negative COVID Tests, and Temperature Checks of Attendees at Society Events,” published April 23, 2021:

“The Board, President, and Society Seneschal are agreed that Kingdoms, and all groups below Kingdom status, shall only be permitted to request proof of vaccination, a negative COVID test, or temperature checks where required by federal, provincial, state, or local laws. No variances will be granted that do not comply with this interpretation.”

​At this time such measures are not required by Christian County Public Health. 

We continue to heartily encourage all Midrealmers who are able to obtain a vaccination to do so to protect others who may not be able to be vaccinated due to health concerns or their age.

Must masks be worn at this event?

No. According to the Kingdom of the Midrealm Proclamation dated May 29, 2021: 

“We encourage those who wish to wear a mask to do so, especially if they are not vaccinated.

Harassment and Bullying Policy
The SCA prohibits harassment and bullying of all individuals and groups. Harassment and bullying includes: but is not limited to the following:

  • Offensive or lewd verbal comments directed to an individual;
  • The display of explicit images (drawn or photographic) depicting an individual in an inappropriate manner;
  • Photographing or recording individuals inappropriately to abuse or harass the individual;
  • Inappropriate physical contact: unwelcome sexual attention or retaliation for reporting harassment and/or bullying.

Participants violating these rules are subject to appropriate sanctions.

If an individual feels subjected to harassment, bullying or retaliation, they should contact a Seneschal, President of the SCA or their Kingdom’s Board Ombudsman.

If a participant of the SCA becomes aware that someone is being harassed or bullied, they have a responsibility pursuant to the SCA code of conduct to come forward and report this behavior to a Seneschal, President of the SCA or Kingdom’s board Ombudsman.

Hate Speech Policy
Hate speech is not tolerated in the Society.

Hate speech is speech or symbols that offend, threaten, or insult individuals or groups, based on race, color, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, disability or other traits.

Such symbols and speech have no essential part of any discussion of ideas and are of so little value to the Society that any benefit that may be derived from them is clearly outweighed by the harm caused.
The use by any participant in the Society may result in possible sanctions up to and including revocation of membership and denial of participation.

Please report any possible instances of hate speech to your Kingdom Seneschal, the Society Seneschal or the President of the SCA immediately. For more information about hate speech and the reporting of same, please refer to the Society Seneschal’s Handbook. “
