SCMC will require proof of fully-vaccinated status, or a negative COVID test taken within 48 hours, for anyone age 12 or older to attend a concert at our venue. In areas with substantial and high transmission, the CDC recommends that everyone (including fully vaccinated individuals) wear a mask in public indoor settings to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, especially the Delta variant, and to protect others. To that end, SCMC is requiring all attendees—regardless of age or vaccination status—to wear a mask while in the building. Attendees will need to bring photo ID and proof of vaccination, or a negative test, the night of a concert.
All staff, volunteers and artists entering the venue are required to be fully vaccinated as well. This policy is in line with many other venues, presenters, promoters and artists and is meant to ensure, as best we can, that live music returns to the stage this season.
If you have tickets to an upcoming performance and are unwilling or unable to abide by this policy please contact our box office at least 48 hours before the performance for a refund at firstname.lastname@example.org.
