OR

  • Provide a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of the event (NOTE: Tests must be PCR and cannot be home testing kits. Test results must be dated no more than 72 hours prior to entry and the name on the test must match your photo ID)
* Please note that you are not fully vaccinated until 2 weeks after your last shot. If you are not fully vaccinated by the event date, you will need to provide the negative COVID-19 test results.
