First Avenue, associated venues require proof of vaccination or recent negative COVID-19 test for entry

First Avenue announced on Monday, effective immediately, that all concerts and events hosted at its venue and associated venues will require proof of a full series of COVID-19 vaccination or proof of a negative test within the past 72 hours.

According to a release, proof of vaccination may include a physical card or a photo of a complete vaccination card that matches the patron’s ID. The vaccine series must have been completed at least 14 days prior to the event. Proof of a negative test may be printed or a digital test result can be presented that matches the ID.

Children under 12 — who cannot be vaccinated as of Monday — can show a negative test to attend events. Those who have a medical condition or closely held religious beliefs that prevents vaccination can attend with proof of a recent negative coronavirus test. If you are not vaccinated, First Avenue encourages you to wear a mask even if you have received a negative COVID-19 test in the last 72 hours.

The policy is in effect at all events held at First Avenue, 7th Street Entry, Turf Club, Fine Line Café, The Fitzgerald Theater and Palace Theatre. First Avenue’s previous policy also included mandatory vaccinations for staff, and the latest update is an extension of those precautions.
