Today is the 3rd anniversary of mass school closures in most United States as a response to the Wuhan Flu Panic.
This has caused unprecedented and irreparable damage to children and youth in the country that is happening today.
These school closures caused unpresidented children and youth to drop out of school due to the unappealing nature of remote learning, and severed students from their friends and any support structure they had.

Ironically most of the left blew their wad on cargo culting China's ZeroCovid instead of demanding unlimited paid sick leave during the Wuhan Flu.
And they recited straight up propaganda despite government policy via their state governors destroyed the main street economy

Nan Desu Kan in Colorado not dropping their mask mandate when the CDC is recommending a back to normal approach and ignoring medical exceptions is another example of the rot that is happening at anime conventions.
It's has nothing to do with health but about hygiene theater.
"Inclusive" unless you have a legitimate health reason you can't wear a face mask, or if you have athsma or have a developmental disability.
