    What if I’ve had the COVID-19 Vaccine?

    Achieving widespread immunity through vaccination will be key to ending the pandemic, but it will take time to get there. Even after a safe and effective vaccine is available, it is critical for all Americans to protect their health and that of their community by continuing to follow public health guidance. All participants, including those who have received the COVID-19 vaccine must abide by the event day guidelines. This includes wearing a mask, social distancing and washing hands thoroughly until enough of the U.S. population is vaccinated to stop the spread of the virus.

    Feel Sick? Stay Home

    • Any individuals entering the venue must abide by the guidelines listed in our event day digital health screening questionnaire.
    • Temperature checks, or other screening measures, may be required at your location.
