The COVID-19 pandemic caused the cancellation or postponement of a multitude of furry conventions including Furnal Equinox, Thaitails and Gateway Furmeet. The pandemic also is attributed to the rise of online furry conventions like Cozy Con and Down Home FurCon. As a result, the 2019 Ursa Major Awards were announced via an online presentation.
