Going to Essence Fest, you need to be Vaxed - negative COVID test not accepted

LINK

quote:

The city of New Orleans dropped its mask and vaccine mandates for bars, restaurants and other public spaces in March. While they were still in place, concert-goers had the option of showing a negative COVID test result instead of a vaccination card.


quote:

But Essence won’t accept a negative test result for admission – only proof of vaccination. Essence also won't exempt anyone with religious or medical objections to the vaccine.

The policy, which appears in the “frequently asked questions” section of the Essence web site, applies to comedian Kevin Hart’s Thursday show at the Smoothie King Center and the three subsequent nights of concerts at the Caesars Superdome.

“Vaccination is for everyone’s protection,” Essence spokesperson Tavia Mapp-Deterville said via email, “and what is on the site is the policy for attendance.”


quote:

The print is so small when you go to the website, you can easily miss that. And then you go to the New Orleans city website and see that COVID mandates have been dropped.”


quote:

Zane Collings, general manager for ASM New Orleans, the company that manages the Superdome, said via email that staffers “will ask all guests to present proof of vaccination and their matching ID at screening locations throughout the property's perimeter. This will occur prior to patrons entering the walk-through metal detectors and the building.”

Dunn noted that the front of her Ticketmaster-printed Essence tickets clearly states, “City COVID rules apply.”

The city doesn’t have a mask or vaccine mandate,” she said. “So which is it?



This is going to cause a shite show this weekend.

Essence Fest is for black people, so rules don’t matter anyway.

Yeaaaaaaa. I bet that won’t be enforced at all. They had to put that in there.

If they somehow do… I feel sorry for anyone of you close to that place. That will be a crap show.

Major technical conference in Vegas (Cal company) had the same restrictions. Shot required, no exceptions and exemptions not allowed either

They are the people who will be masking up long after everyone else has stopped…

so you can be riddled with Covid and get in, but someone with a negative test proving they dont have it can't?

That's funny. I got the single-shot J&J so I'd be good to go, if I wanted to go, even though I currently have COVID.

My only Essence experience was when me and my then-70+ year old mom went to see Prince. Great show, with the dome lit up in Purple, inside and out. Overall a pretty chill crowd, very different from Bayou Classic for example.

This is strange considering they don't require vaccines any more at any event I have been to at the arena/superdome recently.

Simple - just don't give them any business.

Let's see if they change their tune. Virtue-signals are "transitory".

Either way grill time at the Sonesta Room 317. Potato salad room 318. Beans and other fixing room 319 and 321.

I'm wondering do they use lump charcoal or straight up Kingsford?

Oh yeah, I almost forgot BOB, gin and juice and Malt Liquor is on you.

Anytime that you go to New Orleans, vaccines aren't the shots you need to worry about. Especially on July 4th weekend.
