Boskone 60 (  has received the following positive Covid reports from Boskone 60 members:

My temperature was creeping up all day yesterday, and I got a positive test in the evening. I assume this is from breakfast at the Westin Saturday morning*. Sauciete has tall ceilings and good ventilation and I had a table by myself. But the staff wasn’t masked, nor the patrons, of course. This was the only time I took my mask off in public for months.

* Somewhere around 8 to 9. I left the con around noon, and didn’t recognize anyone in Sauciete,

Case B:

Tyler Stewart was staffing the Pandemonium booth in the Boskone 60 Dealer’s Room on Friday and Saturday of last week, and he just tested positive for Covid.

Case C:

Saw you putting in reports so here’s ours – one of my <roommates> has tested positive after the con. They have been basically asymptomatic and both of us in the same hotel room have tested clear twice, so I have hopes they weren’t shedding much. They did not go to many things in person and we ate in the room, but we were at the Glasgow party on Saturday for a bit and the Stan Rogers singalong. (They neither had snacks at Glasgow nor actually did meaningful singing.)
