Phish announced updated COVID-19 protocols for 2021 concerts that will be in place starting with the band’s three-night stand at The Gorge August 27 – 29. Attendees will need to provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination or display a negative COVID-19 test result taken within 48 hours of doors opening for each concert.
Those using a negative test result will not need to provide additional test results if they are attending multiple shows at the same venue. “Children under 12 can attend the concert if they provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test result taken within 48 hours prior to when doors open,” as per a statement from the band.
Phish posted the updated procedures on their social feeds. Additional details will be sent via email to ticket holders and posted on venues’ websites in the days to come. “We strongly recommend that you wear a mask at Phish shows when social distancing isn’t possible,” added Phish in a note echoing their pre-tour COVID-19 statement.
The quartet mentioned specific guidelines for their upcoming shows in Stateline, Nevada; Eugene, Oregon and Las Vegas will be announced soon. Phish continues their 2021 tour on Friday with their first of three concerts in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
