The Charlotte Symphony Orchestra will require all guests to provide proof of vaccination or negative COVID-19 test at indoor concerts starting next month, the group announced Friday.
The new requirement will begin at the Symphony's Opening Night at the Knight Theater on Oct. 15.
All fully vaccinated guests (meaning two weeks after the final dose of the COVID-19 shot) must provide proof of vaccination along with a matching photo ID at every performance.
Unvaccinated guests, including children, must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours before the start of the performance or a negative Rapid Antigen test taken within 24 hours of the start of the performance, along with a photo ID.
