CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

EVENT UPDATE FOR RALIEGH 

March 5, 2020 - We know there is new information this week about one case of Coronavirus in North Carolina. On March 3, the North Carolina Division of Public Health confirmed the state’s first “presumptive positive” result for COVID-19 in Wake County. At the time of this writing, the result is pending confirmation testing at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). 

 

We are monitoring the situation and will continue to take our cues from the local and state government and health officials. Per the Wake County Government: at this point in time, the risk of becoming infected with COVID-19 in North Carolina is still low. Yesterday the Wake County Division of Public Health has recommended that organizations DO NOT cancel events and festivals.  We will continue to monitor the Wake County Division of Public Health recommendations and will adjust our protocols as the situation warrants.

 

At BrickUniverse, we want to make sure we take any necessary precautions for the safety of the public. We are continuing to communicate to our staff and volunteers the importance of preventative measures such as frequent handwashing and rigorous cleaning processes. Some additional steps we have taken for the event this weekend include:

  • Replacing several of our interactive attractions with added LEGO displays. There will be less things to touch at the event and instead, more epic LEGO things to see. 

  • Having our staff wear gloves during the event. 

  • Discontinuing our use of hand stamps for event re-entry. If you want to reenter during your chosen time session, please keep your ticket with you so we can rescan it. 

  • And for guest convenience, we will have additional hand sanitizers at the event.

 

While we are certainly not in the position or authority to offer medical advice, the CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

  • Stay home when you are sick.

  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

If an attendee decides to not attend our event while it is still operational and open, all cancellations are subject to our standard no refund policy. 

 

However, we do stress that if you are sick, please do not come to the event. If you are sick, we are offering the ability to use your ticket(s) for 2021's Raleigh convention instead. Dates TBA. If this is something you'd like to do, please contact us at info@brickuniverse.org before this weekend's event.
