Frequently Asked Questions: I’ve been to other venues that don’t require Covid19 status certification on entry, why are you requiring this? The safety of our customers and staff is a priority and we also want everyone to feel as safe as possible. We believe that Covid-19 status certification is an easy way for everyone to help protect each other when mask wearing and social distancing may not be possible or practical at busy events. What if I don’t want to provide confirmation of my Covid-19 status, or forget to bring it with me? You will not be allowed to enter the event, and there will be no exceptions. I don’t understand how to get a Covid-19 Pass or to prove my Covid status?
