New COVID-19 Vaccine / Negative Test Mandates

https://www.instagram.com/p/CShPawGjctM

New DMB COVID-19 protocols finally came out. Been waiting for this for a while now. Will definitely feel much safer at shows. Was hoping they would require vaccines, but this is a good start.

Quote:
Beginning with Dave Matthews Band’s August 21st show in Columbia, MD at Merriweather Post Pavilion, all ticket holders for all announced dates must provide proof of full vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test taken within 48-hours prior to entry.* Children under the age of 12 may attend the concert if they provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within 48 hours of the show. Ticket holders using a negative test for entry will not need to get subsequent tests if they are attending multiple shows at the same venue.

We encourage all fans to wear a mask, especially when social distancing is not possible. Specific venue websites will be updated shortly with updated protocols.**

Dave Matthews Band is grateful to be back out on the road playing live music again. We are a fully vaccinated band and touring crew. Let’s keep each other safe; please join us in getting vaccinated!

*Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, MD will be requiring proof of full vaccination or a negative test taken within 72 hours of the event.

Fiddler’s Green in Greenwood Village, CO will require proof of full vaccination (final dose at least 14 days prior to event); a negative test will not be accepted for entry.

Dave Matthews Band’s shows at Madison Square Garden will require proof of full vaccination (final does at least 14 days prior to event); a negative test will not be accepted for entry, in compliance with local government mandates.

** Guidelines for DMB’s shows in Durant, OK and Columbus, OH will be announced shortly.

Thank god. Maybe this will convince some people who have been on the fence to finally get vaccinated and get this world moving closer to normal.

Re: New COVID-19 Vaccine / Negative Test Mandates

It's about time. Vaccine or negative test is a no-brainer at this juncture and gives you options no matter if you want to get the shot or not.

If anyone thinks this isn't fair or infringes on their freedom... find something else to do.

This might have prevented me from getting Covid in WPB. Hopefully more of the venues become vaccinated only.

Definitely glad they are doing this- but the kicker will be how many people will adhere to the masks recommendation. I’ll be masking up for my shows this fall. We as vaccinated people will also catch and spread Delta, so a good N95 may help a lot. Hope more people start wearing them again.

No way! I think heís onto something lol🤦🏻*♂️ I should change sleep apnea drs because that motherfucker told me 20 years ago I had to wear this stupid mask to bed every night or it could eventually kill me. And I never asked him his political party. Adding that to the questionnaire for my drs. Things you learn. 😁

That's quite a list there, but it's a fraction of the people at the shows.

And they're all fine now, and probably would go through it again. In fact, it seems like quite a few are seeing more shows, including this weekend.

I think it's relatively safe to say, that given the precautions being taken, nobody at The Gorge has Covid currently, so there's nothing for those in attendance to worry about.

There actually *is* science in masking outside, especially when in close proximity to 20,000 other people. Saying there isnít science doesnít mean there isnít science.

I thought I was in the clear as well. I hope you're vaccinated at least.

I posted a comment this week on this thread. I got covid after going to Gilfrod both nights without a mask. Gilford is an outdoor venue but like many other venues, you're in close proximity to a ton of people. As someone who just spent the last week in bed with covid (even though I got the vaccine) if I could go back I'd definitely wear a mask... and a good one too.. N95. You could probably safely remove your mask and have a beer or two outside the amphitheater area. At very minimum I'd wear a mask in the bathrooms? I hope you and many others don't get it. Good luck.

A good decision, even though it kind of sucks for the people who aren’t vaccinated.

true. Not that much extra effort at all assuming thereís a testing site nearby.

Guessing a mask requirement is coming fairly soon as well. :/

I mean this with all sincerity, but fuck the (willingly) unvaccinated. They are too small, ignorant and selfish in my view to have any sort of societal freedoms.

Re: New COVID-19 Vaccine / Negative Test Mandates

How do you prove your vaccination? Is there something you submit before attending? Bring card to the show? Bring picture of your vax card?

if the venueís state has an app similar to the Excelsior Pass in NY, Iíd imagine that would be accepted.


Best to contact the venue directly to find outÖ

Merriweather post pavilion in Maryland announced a few days ago that vaccinations or negative test are required for all events there.

They said photos of your card will be fine. Wondering if DMB will do the same. Its the venues that will have to deal with this.

Scan it and print out a copy of the scan.

Casino has no updates regarding a mask policy since May and I wouldn't expect the whole place to make it required. Considering how certain Texas venues wouldn't play ball with Jason Isbell on his policy I would expect something similar out of Oklahoma.
