The reason is two fold;
First - Mask requirements & mandates, even if vaccinated, and the reduction of number of people allowed to gather indoors is not conducive to a meet & greet where people want to take pictures! When we booked April, vaccinated did not have to wear masks at indoor events. That has again changed.
Second - I am sure everyone is aware of flight disruptions (25,000 cancelled flights in last 2 weeks) due to staffing with COVID+ cases. Delays of 2 and 3 days from planned travel is an untenable situation for people with airline tickets to attend.
This Omnicron variant is much more communicable so many group events thru April are pushing their dates back to summer and beyond.
The vaccination rate in the US is 62%. Health officials are indicating the data is showing the variant is not putting vaccinated people in hospital unless they have significant underlying conditions. However, we do not want to put anyone in the position of contracting COVID at a large group event and then suffering an unknown health experience.
We are now trying to mitigate just the contagion versus the mortality.
All tickets will be transferred to new dates.
