The Boskone member said:
Just want to report that I tested positive for covid yesterday. My best guess is that I picked it up some time on Friday. I was at the Speculative Evolution and Appeal of Unappealing Characters panels, and I spent a decent amount of time in the dealers room and art show. I was masked for all of those, but I spent time unmasked in the bar both Friday and Saturday.
Boskone member mostly in Harbor 1, with some time in the Staff Den, and Independence Boardroom, followed by some time during setup for the Reading Area. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, had breakfast in the Hotel Restaurant. Saturday and Sunday with various techs.
James Reynolds reported:

I spent most of my time in the Art Show and the Dealers room, dinners at O’Connors.
Today (Feb 16) he reported that his roommate, Jane Sibley, tested negative.
