  • Molecular, PCR or Antigen test results from an official testing center.
  • A printed document from the test provider or laboratory, OR an electronic test result displayed on a phone or other device.
  • NO at-home tests will be accepted for entry.
  • Self-attestation may NOT be used as a mode of verification.

Beginning December 1st:

  • All attendees age 18 and older must provide identification to confirm the individual presenting proof of vaccination or negative test is the attendee entering the facility or venue.
