Umm. Let's remember that the vaccines are 33-93% effective [1],
which means that there's approximately a 100% certainty that at least
one person arriving at the event from a trans-atlantic flight has been
exposed to someone who has the virus. I'm not convinced that holding a
"more relaxed protocol" event is a great idea.
