CMAC Performing Arts Center in Canandaigua is joining the growing list of concert venues no loner requiring proof of vaccination to attend a show. They were the first to announce the requirement, but one of the last to rescind the mandate.

With the ever-changing New York Protocols and Guideline issued by the Governor's Office, you almost need a scorecard to keep up with the rules. CMAC announced their change of plans with a press release.

Pursuant to New York State COVID-19 updated guidelines issued on June 15, 2021, proof of COVID-19 vaccinations and/or negative COVID-19 tests will not be required for admission to CMAC this summer

There are some gigantic loopholes with the new rules which are:

  • Children under 12 who are not eligible to receive the vaccine, must wear a mask.
  • Unvaccinated individuals must still wear a mask.
  • Vaccinated concert attendees do not need to wear a mask.

With no requirement to prove you have received the COVID-19 vaccinations, how can a mask prerequisite even be enforced? Does the change in guidelines make you more or less likely to attend a concert?

Here is CMAC's country lineup for the summer:

The Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra – Red White & Boom – July 3rd
Dierks Bentley July 22
Spirit Of The South Tour (Featuring Blackberry Smoke) – July 31st
Luke Combs on August 5 and 6
Thomas Rhett on August 22.

Here's more of the CMAC lineup in 2021. Learn more about the venues, COVID-19 Guidelines at their website.
