Autocrat/Gleann Abhann Seneschal Information Updates
In an effort to ensure that everyone that attends GulfWars this year stays healthy and safe, the following information is being made available to the public as it comes available.
Plague carrier is a perfectly acceptable excuse for missing Gulf Wars. If you’re suffering from the plague, please stay at home. We will happily welcome you to war next year.
Public Announcement from the Autocrats
If you have questions about Gulf Wars and Coronavirus, we are getting more handwash stations and more hand sanitizer stations.
Please bring your own hand soap and sanitizers for your camp and use them often.
Good afternoon! Below is a clarification and if anyone has any questions, please call or text me or the GW Autocrats. We are here to serve and it is our hope that everyone has a safe and enjoyable war: ”The policy concerning food and water safety at Gulf Wars was written for and applies to Gulf Wars Staff and those helping them with Officially sanctioned activities at war, such as KWP, socials, and fighter support. This policy was erroneously shared with the populace at large. This policy does not apply to any private camps, or parties. Nor does it apply to anyone that is not actively serving food or drink in an official capacity.”
Glenn Abhann, Seneschal
We don’t need ANYONE serving water, fluids, orange slices or pickles, or other food at any organized function at Gulf Wars from one container that gets contamination from people directly. That means no bottles of water or fluids with tubes or other methods that go from mouth to mouth. That means no bowls of cut fruit or food where dozens of people pull from a bowl directly. We also need confirmation that proper hygiene is practiced on and off the field when water or fluids are passed out. Anyone violating these policies will be removed from site.
Current CDC recommendation for Mass Gatherings
To alleviate hearsay, speculation, and rumor, here are the websites of the CDC and every State Department of Health in all of states that border Mississippi. I recommend that you visit them regularly for updates on the current situation.
