All guests must be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 and present proof of Covid-19 vaccination. Attendees must keep current with any booster requirements as outlined by CDC officials and are required to present updated vaccination proof by May 31, 2023. We will continuously monitor recommendations by local, state, city, country, and the CDC, and update our policy accordingly.

We will have information on local Covid-19 testing sites if the need to test arises. Any positive results will require isolation and quarantine at the expense of the guest.
