Nobody wants to do COVID-19 precautions. We don't want to do COVID-19 precautions. But we want to ensure everyone feels safe, so we plan to we plan to request our guests be vaccinated or obtain proof of negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within three days before the event.
Thank you in advance for showing care for one another and particularly those in attendance who may be more vulnerable.
