FAQ ANSWERS REGARDING COVID AND US
Masks are still required for all customers shopping in our store. You can shop online or via phone if you prefer to not wear masks.

Events... This is a challenging topic. We've been as cautious as we can throughout Covid. I thought we could start events in July, but it's taking us weeks to finish unpacking and organizing everything not on the Sales Floor.

The Delta and Epsilon variants of Covid are making things more challenging. In the past 3 weeks there's been over 1500 new cases in the County (Data per the Covid Dashboard). I know people want to game, but I just don't want to risk Covid being spread at Illusive. So we'll be holding off until the case rate goes far down and stays that way at least a week. If there is an infection, a lot of my staff would have to go on quarantine. I don't want to risk any customer or staffer's lives, and you don't want our store to close down for 10 days.

Starting events take a lot of planning, organization and staffing on our end- and then have to pause if Covid infections get bad, like they're currently trending, would be quite the hassle.

The only way to get gaming starting sooner is to encourage everyone aged 12+ to get vaccinated.
