COVID-19 Information


At all San Diego Comic Convention events, the health and safety of our stakeholders are our main priorities, and because of, this we will continue to implement policies and protocols based on state/local health guidelines and public health recommendations as we prepare for Comic-Con 2024 on July 25-28, 2024, at the San Diego Convention Center. As the COVID-19 situation continues to be one that is constantly changing, we will continue to assess the evolving public health guidance regarding large gatherings and adapt accordingly.

We encourage every individual to make informed decisions about attending our events in the best interest of their own health as well as the health of others. We will continue to update these policies and protocols as they are available, so be sure to check this page often for the most up-to-date information.

While San Diego Comic Convention (“SDCC”) cannot guarantee that its participants will not become infected with COVID-19 or other illnesses, SDCC will, at a minimum, comply with all federal, state, and local laws, mandates, and requirements, including masking, social distancing, limiting attendance, postponing and/or canceling an event, if required. SDCC reserves the right to modify requirements or limits for attending or participating in an event, including by requiring masks and/or vaccinations.

While not required at this time, SDCC recommends that participants do the following:

  • Get vaccinated and boosted for COVID, if appropriate;
  • Wear a medical quality mask while attending the event; and
