    • Anyone who attends an SCA event when potentially infectious for COVID-19, or who has been identified as a primary or secondary close contact, must immediately contact the Kingdom Seneschal’s Office –
    • As soon as any information is received by the Kingdom Seneschal that suggests that COVID-19 may have been transmitted during an SCA event, the group seneschal and, if relevant, the event steward, must be advised to prepare a contact list. 
  2. In the event of a positive test result, and in addition to the local area’s contact tracing information, the Kingdom Seneschal (or designated deputy) must:
  • Advise any participants that they may have been in close contact with a known (or potentially) positive case, and directed to immediately self- isolate and await confirmation regarding the relevant contact.
  • Provide, upon request, any contact tracing information that has been lawfully requested by the local territory as part of the contact tracing activities.
