We apologize for the confusion caused last week when we sent out an email relaxing the mask mandate for KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe and co-located events in alignment with Spain dropping their mask mandate. We have reconsidered this decision and the mask mandate will stay in place for the events.
The local Spanish government, most airlines as well as local restaurants, shops, etc in Valencia are no longer requiring masks. For those of you who are not comfortable attending now due to the risk assessment, registration fees can be refunded through the first day of the event. For those of you that are still attending, but would like assistance with personal protective equipment, we are happy to send you a week’s supply of N95 masks. In either case, you can reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Full details are located on our health and safety page: https://events.linuxfoundation.org/kubecon-cloudnativecon-europe/attend/health-and-safety/
We will continue to work in consultation with our epidemiologist advisor and local health authorities to provide a safe and rich experience at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon Europe. We look forward to seeing you all soon in Valencia.
