Milwaukee's Summerfest to Demand Shot or Negative COVID Test
One of the country’s most popular music festivals is going to require attendees to have a COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test to get into the concerts.
Organizers at Summerfest in Milwaukee released a revised entry protocol policy Tuesday announcing that those attending the lakeside festival will need proof of vaccination or negative results from a COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of attending.
The Summerfest website says either a PCR or rapid test is acceptable.
The annual concert runs Sept. 2 to 4, 9 to 11, and 16 to 18.
Last month, Lollapalooza, the giant music festival on Chicago’s lakefront, put in place restrictions similar to those Summerfest announced.
