CMAC Reverses Course, No Proof of Vaccination Needed to See a Concert
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.
