In accordance with CDC and Johnson County Public Health Department recommendations, as of Friday, August 6th face masks (covering both the nose and mouth) will be required for all visitors to Critical Hit Games, regardless of vaccination status. For those without a mask, we will happily provide one free of charge.
We have been keeping a close eye on the status of COVID transmission in Johnson County and our neighboring counties. Earlier this week, the CDC upgraded Johnson County to “substantial” levels of community transmission and now recommends mask use indoors, regardless of vaccination status, in areas of substantial or high transmission. 90 of Iowa’s 99 counties are now at high or substantial levels of COVID transmission.
New data reinforces that fully vaccinated people who do become infected with the Delta variant can transmit it to others. Therefore, fully vaccinated people can further reduce their risk of becoming infected with the Delta variant and transmitting it to others by wearing a mask in public indoor settings in areas of substantial or high community transmission.
CHG will continue to offer in-store gaming to vaccinated community members, though face masks will once again be required.
Our in-store gaming hours are: Mon-Thurs 5-9pm; Fridays 6-10pm; Saturdays 5-9pm; and Sundays 12-6pm. Our walk-in hours for shopping are Mon-Sat. from 12-7pm and Sunday from 12-6pm.
CHG and its staff are happy to offer curbside pickup to anyone who would prefer not to come inside or wear a mask.
We are so appreciative of our community and care deeply for all of our gamers. We proudly offer a fun, safe gaming space for each of you and this will help to ensure we keep everyone as safe as possible while gaming at the shop or in the Lost Quarter Arcade.
We appreciate your support and cooperation in keeping new and breakthrough infections at bay and in protecting the vulnerable members of our community, especially those under age 12 who are not yet vaccine eligible.
If you are eligible but have not yet been vaccinated, please reconsider. This cycle won’t end until everyone who CAN get vaccinated DOES. We don’t do it only for ourselves, but also for each other.
We will only get through this pandemic together.
Happy and safe gaming from CHG!
