Policy Requiring Proof of Vaccination Or Negative COVID Test
Because of the continuing high number of cases of COVID-19 caused by the Delta variant, and with the goal of providing the safest possible conditions for performing and enjoying live music, the Davidson College Music Department has updated its policy for attendance to require proof of vaccination or negative COVID test for indoor public events starting on October 15, 2021.
As Davidson College students, faculty, and staff are already required to be vaccinated, those individuals will only be asked to show their CatCard as proof of vaccination. For guests to our events coming from outside the college community, it is now mandatory to provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test to attend any indoor event sponsored by the Davidson College Music Department.
If you are over the age of five and eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine, you will be asked to provide digital or printed documentation showing that you are fully vaccinated along with a matching photo ID. Please have these items ready along with your ticket to the event. To be fully vaccinated, you must have received the final dose of an FDA or WHO authorized COVID-19 vaccine at least two weeks prior to the event.
Those unable to be vaccinated because of age or medical or religious reasons may provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test in addition to a photo ID. For minors who may not have a photo ID, a parent’s or guardian’s ID will suffice. The test result must be within 72 hours of a PCR test or 24 hours of a rapid test and must show the date and time of the test.
Face masks will still be required at all times when indoors and they must be properly worn by all attendees over the age of two.
All COVID-19 pandemic policies are subject to revision and we look forward to the time when these policies may be reduced or removed altogether. Please refer to our website at www.davidson.edu/music/
