Vaccination Policy

All patrons attending indoor performances presented by the Tri-State Community Concert Association are required to provide proof of vaccination and identification at every performance.

Mask Policy

Masks are required of all patrons whenever Allegany County is in the CDC's moderate, substantial or high community transmission levels (which, as of today, it currently is). Masks will always be required of patrons who are unvaccinated. Tri-State Community Concert Association maintains a mask-friendly environment, understanding that many in our community will choose to wear a mask regardless of vaccination status.

I am vaccinated. When do I need to wear a mask?

US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has published a four-tiered system that measures the level of community transmission in each county: low, moderate, substantial, and high. For patrons who provide proof of vaccination, masks will be required at times of moderate, substantial and high community transmission on the date of the performance. At all times, Tri-State Community Concert Association is mask-friendly, understanding that many in our community will want to wear a mask regardless of vaccination status.

We will communicate with ticketholders about any policy modification resulting from any changes in community transmission but also advise that patrons always carry a mask when attending Tri-State Community Concert Association performances at this time.

What if my child is too young and won’t wear a mask?

All patrons who are unvaccinated are required to wear a mask.

How are you verifying that vaccination documentation is not fake?

We have a fundamental belief that most people are good and honest. In addition to the acceptable forms of vaccination proof we have listed in our protocols, we will be checking for matching ID. Those misrepresenting themselves as vaccinated are reminded that doing so is a federal crime. Please note that vaccine verification is one of many layers of safety that are being deployed for guest health and safety.

I am not willing to take this step.

We will miss you and look forward to seeing you when the need for these precautions ends.
